Lumber Support

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

A trio of Goodgym cyclists met at Mildmay Community Centre last night, to help the neighbourhood gardening team with regenerating their planting space.

Emily and Caitlin were led by Dom and Teena of Mildmay to their lovely organic growing space for their foodbank visitors at the back of the centre. Our task for the evening was to move a pile of disassembled wooden decking and long palms from the garden, over to the Islington Council drop off point for wood and lumber. We carefully used heavily padded work gloves and wheelbarrows to direct the awkward objects to the appropriate spot (while avoiding various neighbourhood cats, who were fascinated with what we were up to!). Crowbars and mallets were used to pull away the last of the decking, and we swept up all of the debris into a woodchuck bed to complete a very satisfying task! Well done everyone!

On the EDGE of glory at Compton Terrace Gardens

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

On a lovely mild Monday evening, Goodgymmers Luke and Simon met up (a bit earlier than usual) at the Arsenal Community Hub on Benwell Road for our weekly group run session. Together, we ran approximately 1 mile to up Whistler Street, across Highbury Fields and towards Union Chapel, meeting with Anne, Emily and Jo upon arrival.

Lovely gardening volunteer Elise of Compton Terrace Gardens was thrilled to see an excellent crew of Goodgymmers down for a special Monday evening session, ready to help in the lead up to Islington in Bloom. Our objective for the evening was to create a clean edge around the main pathway through this beautiful public park- clipping away any excess grass and weeds before the area is assessed for the competition. We used a mix of gardening hoes, edging tools, grass knives and wire brushes to clear the extra foliage over the course of 50 minutes.

We were really happy to be able to complete our task within the alloted timeframe- super satisfying, well done!

Painting the wonderful Belsize Community Library :)

Camden Report written by Alex Murtough (he/him)

Do we really know what we're doing?

Someone asked.

Know where we can find a book on painting?

Was how our happy group of 8 started at Belsize Community Library on Wednesday evening.

We'd already braved and toppled a sun drenched Haverstock Hill, and we busily combined our rehydrating efforts with pouring paint into trays.

The office and corridor walls had previously been painted by a local group of children. Who'd done a brilliant job, but just on parts of the wall. We were there to fill the gaps and apply a new coat.

Which we got to speedily and whilst catching up with one another.

It's a joy to be in special community spaces, in spring long evenings, and whilst the usual hubbub has passed. We enjoyed the space and we made a difference across a fast 45 minutes.

Thank you, all, for your work, time, and joy - it was lovely to see you!

We DEED It!

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

After a glorious weekend of spring time sunshine, we were thrilled to meet up for our weekly Monday group session back at the Arsenal Community Hub. Simon, Mehmet, Dan and Caitlin performed a series of warm up dynamic exercises o the Emirates Stadium slopes before running 1 mile up Highbury Hill and over to Highbury Quadrant Estate Gardens.

It is our pleasure to congratulate Dan on joining us for 50 sessions, and Caitlin for joining us for 100 sessions! An awesome achievement, and I hope you both continue to run with us for many more!

Upon our arrival, we caught up with Emily, Alison and Lucia in the Highbury Quadrant Meadow. Frannie, one of the busiest gardening coordinators in the borough (who is now working for Elizabeth House!) and resident gardener Peter, set us a collection of tasks along the newly developed wild flower spaces. Group 1 were taken to the orchard with wheelbarrows and shovels, and helped with moving freshly cultivated compost into flowerbeds (while trying not to spook a curious fox friend next door).

Group 2 stayed in the main wildflower plot (super lush and green after the sun and heavy rains), and helped with clearing a pathway using clippers and secateurs through the forest. Together, we also assisted with moving some heavy logs and branches away from the entrance way, so residents can visit soon.

More work will be coming soon to prepare to the London Open Parks Festival on 8th and 9th June- follow the link for more information:

https://londongardenstrust.org/

Smashing work everyone. We all took the opportunity to travel back to The Emirates Stadium (walking, running and cycling) before heading to The Highbury Library bottle shop in Drayton Park to celebrate our achievements over the last month. Awesome stuff!

Our Work in the Library... It Was 'Fine'!

Camden Report written by Alex Murtough (he/him)

It's a 2 mile run tonight, folks!

We'll stay completely together, too!

What a gorgeous evening for a run, hey!

Isn't the last road a big hill?

Well...

It's called Haverstock Hill, right?

Ummm...

That sounds like a hill, Alex

Look! A bird!

Which was how our happy evening started.

Our wonderful group of Akshay, Faye, Jackie, John, Steve, and I met by an evening King's Cross, and we took a sun peppered run through Camden, past Chalk Farm, and over to Belsize Park.

Arriving at the special Belsize Community Library, we were met by the brilliant Emily, who'd cycled on down.

It's a special site, this community library, nestled by an allotment and within an innocuous North London street. It's become the de-facto meeting space for the local community, and we arrived to the evening's final readers and a local council residents surgery.

Fay and Jackie got to one task swiftly, heading out to paint one of the bike racks a fresh shade in weather resistant paint; whilst Akshay, Emily, John, and Steve took to the inside, picking strewn litter under the bay window seating, vacuuming the cleared area, and giving the top shelves a well needed dust :)

I, on the other hand, browsed the books. It was great. Consumed, I was! A little noise from some folks in red 'doing good', but all in all, the perfect reading environment!!

Thanks, everyone, for your time, work, and lovely company - here's to next time!!
