Rake it until you make it

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

On one of the chilliest nights of Winter so far, 5 superstar Goodgym folks met with Area Activator Simon in the Arsenal Community Hub for our Monday group run across the borough. This week, we planned to run together to Caledonian Park, a beautiful green space just by the Islington/Camden border. After a quality dynamic warm up, we ran a full mile together up Mackenzie Road, past Market Road Gardens and over to the famous Caledonian Park clock tower.

Upon our arrival, we met with Miriam, the main volunteer coordinator for the park (and frequent Caledonian Park junior parkrun event organiser) outside the Tolpuddle Café. She was in the park halls for a choir rehearsal, but was happy to bring rakes and leaf grabbers for tonight's task. Our plan was to clear a full pathway towards the south of the park- a nature walkway that Goodgym Islington had helped with building in the past. The fallen leaves had completely hidden this lovely pathway, so our team pitched in a solid 45 minutes of energetic raking to bring the space back to normal. We were able to complete the objective by 8pm exactly- a job well done!

Congratulations everyone!

A Host of golden Goodgymmers

Liverpool Report written by Sophie McClellan

After a short run from Hope Street, 3 runners were met by 8 more goodgymmers.

This week, we were back at Mulgrave Street Action Group Community Garden where, once again, Khan had a mammoth task for us.

Armed with bagfuls of daffodil bulbs and a few trowels, we set to work on the small patch of grass in front of the garden. Digging and planting until the whole patch was filled.

With the help of new recruit Lee and visiting Londoner Emily we manged to plant four big bags of bulbs - cant wait to see it in the spring for a true William Wordsworth moment!

Well done everyone - it's great to see the impact of the garden expanding!
