Weed, donโ€™t need no vegetation

Bromley Report written by Mark Gilyead (he/him)

11 legends used their Monday night to get in a jog and a good weeding deed for TNG Youth Centre.

We kicked off the evening with names and the place weโ€™d love to wake up in. Some spectacular choices ranging from Patagonia to Japan to Antarctica.

After a quick warm up we headed to Sydenham. This was a DIY session with nothing but us, our gloves and the weeds.

Some nasty brambles were no match for Molly, and Adam cleverly suggested a spot in the bushes across the road for our piles of vegetation ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Once we'd scraped, yanked and whispered (yup) all the weeds out, we headed round the corner to the (apparently) famous 'SNUFFLE' - a wine bar, cafe and dog groomers/spa, "probably for tax reasons", said Emma.

We headed back via a different route. We had a wallsit competition. Cat won! ๐Ÿ†

And finally we did some stretches and a few of us had a beverage. NICE.

Prickly Park

Bromley Report written by Leaonie Watts

A lovely morning with the Friends of Kelsey Park and our GoodGym team to help clear out lots of brambles and invasive ivy. We survived the 10am downpour and got lots cleared! Well done Team!

Blindweed by the light (500 times)

Bromley Report written by Bromley runner

Our last Group Run of January, and what a way to blast out! ๐Ÿ’ฅ We had a very special milestone to celebrate - read on to find out more....

January Challenge

Plus we were on 87 good deeds and with over 10 signups, reaching our target of 100 good deeds in the January challenge was tantalisingly close. What seemed an outlandish doubling of our 2023 target was now a realistic goal ๐ŸŽฏ

A roadblock appeared, however. Winter ๐ŸŒจ๏ธ is a notoriously difficult period to find tasks at times, but not for lack of trying. Mark managed to line up a task for us a couple of days before the run, though it sadly got cancelled on Monday afternoon, requiring some quick thinking ๐Ÿค”

Best laid plans

Mark suggested we split into two groups - some guerilla gardeners to weed unloved planters ๐Ÿชด by Kent House station, and GoodGym promoters ๐Ÿƒ putting up postcards on noticeboards to tell the world (well, Penge and Crystal Palace) what we do.

After introducing ourselves with a contender for the most odd question of the week ever (Which toothpaste do you use? ๐Ÿชฅ), we prepared to divide. The promoters further split into two teams led by Cat and me (Stephen). We fought with rock, paper, scissors for who would go up the hill to Crystal Palace; Cat's scissors โœ‚๏ธ resigned me and my paper ๐Ÿ“ฐ to the steep incline and won her Penge.

Up the hill, down the hill

I wasn't alone, though, as David, Harry and Renier also volunteered for the harder route, and the band of merry men headed off for higher altitudes โ›ฐ๏ธ. Mega shout out to David for pluckiness in seeing if newsagents, restaurants - anyone, really - would host our postcards in their window. We got positive response from numerous places we'd never promoted with before, and this was on Anerley Hill before we got near to The Triangle ๐Ÿ˜€

Mark's and Cat's teams flew towards Penge, with Team Green (Fingers) getting to work on the weeds at Kent House.

All together now

We met back at the Bridge House to hear each others' task stories and prepared to surprise an unsuspecting GoodGym'er, for it was none other than Mark's 500th good deed, an occasion demanding cake ๐ŸŽ‚ and an amazingly augmented card and badge from Hannah!

Congratulations Mark! ๐Ÿ‘

100 club

We're now a good deed shy of 100 - our goal is within reach and will surely be toppled before the month is done. Well done everyone who participated and helped us get there ๐Ÿฅณ

Soil away, soil away, soil away

Bromley Report written by Bromley runner

Four GoodGymmers met members of the Blenheim-Arpley Estate Residents association to shift a load of soil to fill their flower beds ready for planting. Using a variety of tools (wheelbarrows, wheelchairs, shovels and ikea bags!) we got to work and managed to transport the whole lot in an hour. It was great to spend a sunny morning digging, lifting and chatting - great stuff everyone!

Sprucing up the Streets! ๐ŸŒฒ

Bromley Report written by Mark Gilyead (he/him)

Shout out to James for pun creation! ๐Ÿ’ฅ

It's the first group run of the year which can only mean one thing...

Our annual Christmas tree collection extravaganza!

Tonight's haul was reasonably successful actually - especially as we picked up our smallest and largest trees ever!

First up we met at the Bridge House and shared what we were looking forward to about the new year - some good goodgym intentions and some looovely holiday destinations.

We hit the road straight away, powering towards Mayow Park in Sydenham. From there we split into 3 teams to scan the area for discarded firs.

๐Ÿฅ‰ Nick, Richard, Kate and Sam found a respectable 1 tree ๐ŸŒฒ but were plagued by injur-tree.

๐Ÿฅˆ Stephen, Rosie, Charlie, Clare and James scored a solid tree (3) points ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ

๐Ÿฅ‡ And Kelsey, Shauna, David, Harry and I managed to find ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ 5 fiir treeeeees.

TREEMENDOUS TREECYCLING EVERYONE.

The streets are looking clearer and safer and the trees will be blitzed into pieces to be used in local parks ๐Ÿ™Œ

Cheers for visiting Sam and nice to see OG GoodGymer Richard!
