On a sunny Bank holiday evening Goodgym Brent met in Willesden Green. We welcomed back Catherine for her second Goodgym session, and a big welcome to Brian, who joined for the first time! Brian has been lurking in the Brent Whatsapp group for 2+ years, and has finally made it to his first run, hopefully of many!
We warmed up and introduced ourselves and jogged 2.2km to Clitterhouse farm. Anika and Rob met us on arrival and were pleased to see such a big group of us. Our task for the day was clearing out a HUGE pile of garden waste, and a compost heap to make way for a wildflower garden and a pond.
We worked well as a team, filling wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow with sticks and compost. Josh was able to lift kilos at a time, Lizzy and Catherine found their new calling as power tool masters, removing the screws from the compost bin so we could access and remove the compost very easily.Brian was a wheelbarrow pro. Tabitha took the lovely pics in the report.
In no time at all, the pile had been removed, it was very rewarding to see the changes a big group can make in a small space of time, Rob and Anika were very grateful for the help. We packed up, stopped for a team photo, waved goodbye and jogged back to Willesden for a warm down and a cool drink.

On a sunny Monday evening we welcomed two newcomers to Goodgym Brent , a big hello to Catherine and Chris !
Todays task was a litter pick of Willesden on the way to our summer social picnic .
Tabitha, Chris and Catherine took the left side of the road , and Amy and Chris the right . There was plenty of litter to pick and we added a fitness twist by squatting while picking. Lee soon joined and we had bags full of litter by the time we reached Gladstone park.
At the park we met Samina , Maria and Karen who had helped with a pick of the park .
We stayed in the park for a social picnic, where we shared popcorn, biscuits , fruit and crisps ... and an onion
Thanks Everyone !
