For our second Tuesday evening Bromley sesh (🥳) we were at Southlands Road Allotments. Local sustainability charity Greener and Cleaner have inherited a space which they're turning into a community garden. There's a few fruit trees, a shed of sorts, a compost and not much else. The plan is to turn it into a thriving growing space where the local community can learn to grow and eat fresh fruit and veg! 🥕
Can you dig it?
Job one was digging a hole for a massive metal container. It's going to become an accessible growing bed but first needed cementing in place.
Gettin' twiggy with it
Meanwhile we needed to transfer loads of the twigs and branches from the top of the compost heap into the metal container. These will have compost added and then rot down.
Whilst this was happening, Jo and Clare were cutting up huge plastic bottles into a specific shape so that they can become strawberry pots!
The majority of the materials used for the community garden are repurposed and upcycled. Stephen was removing nails from some pallet wood using a hammer.
Cracking job team! 👍 Thanks for sharing your favourite veg and your energy to get this community green space up and running 💪 Special shoutout to Jo who attended her first GG sesh! Welcome to the gang.

Dani (He) earned their community cape by completing their first community mission.
Dani completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Dani was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.

Our new Tuesday evening sessions certainly started with a bang. 16 people turned up to help out local sustainability charity Greener & Cleaner with some lifting and shifting and decorating etc. ahead of their big Christmas Fair event next weekend.
A few of us met in Beckenham, ran via Shortlands to pick up a few more and then made our way up the hill to meet a few more people outside the Hub. 😅
After whipping through the instructions we'd been set, our incredibly organised bunch got to work:
📌 Putting up a 'Greener Christmas' banner
🧵 Relocating the sewing machines
🧣 Boxing up all the handmade goods
📚 Bagging the books
📦 Moving a load of boxes
👇 Taking mannequins, bags and boxes etc. to the storage room downstairs
Not bad for 30 minutes or so!

Dani (He) has done their first good deed with GoodGym.
Dani is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.

Another post-covid attendance record smashed.
And another session making some serious progress at the Water Tower. 🔥🔥🔥💦💦💦🚒🚒🚒
We kicked off in the Bridge House with names and board games - some classics and some clearly quite complex choices. And then we did a brisk warm up before splitting in 3.
We arrived almost in sync, met history genius John, and headed into the tower. As usual, our tasks were varied:
🌱 Pulling out many wee weeds
🛒 Shovelling in and shaking soil through the trolley
💰 Bagging up the good stuff (which we'll use for our GoodGym garden in Betts Park) 😉
📷 I was trying to take some nice profile pics for people. I'm no photographer though, so they suck, sorry.
After 30 minutes, we called it a day, having made another massive dent in the project, which will one day mean that the public can access the tower during their museum experience. We posed for some peace-ing and then hit the road, back to the pub for some stretching and beverages.
Massive props to everyone 👏👏👏👏
