Pilates in the DARK

Tower Hamlets Report written by Laura Williams

Pilates in the Park soon became Pilates in the Dark...

It was in fact a gorgeous night to enjoy this dedicated fitness session, where we got a chance to catch up on all those items on our exercise to-do list.

High Vibes

One by one we gathered in magical Meath Gardens, complete with mats, resistance equipment, lighting and Apple Music's High Vibes Yoga playlist. By 7:10 we were all set, and proceeded to whizz through some dynamic stretches and warm-up exercises.

Moving swiftly onto a little Pilates theory, we learned about the main core muscles, and proceeded to put our new-found knowledge into practice with some challenging balancing moves. Add in some already-tough body weight moves combined with a little resistance equipment, a few minutes in and we were no longer worried about feeling the chill on this October evening.

Down to the ground we headed for 'ab attack', a dedicated section targeting all three areas of the abdominals, before moving onto upper body and arms; hitting the glutes, and finally finishing with some of the less tough stuff. At last!

As we lay on the ground, focusing on flexibility and mobility for the final time that evening, and having moved on to Apple's Peaceful Music list, we concluded that a lot had been achieved, and that it was an hour well spent on a lovely Autumn evening.

Until next time.

Herb Your Enthusiasm

Tower Hamlets Report written by Laura Williams

Nothing could have prepared us for the adventure that was tonight's task.

Starting on a quiet Spitalfields street corner, runner, cyclists and walkers arrived one-by-one to our meeting spot, Benk&Bo on Gravel Lane.

This space acts as co-working space; event space and...community garden.

We were taken a few flights up by Freya, our longstanding task owner (previously of Cranbrook Community Garden). Freya introduced us to Ted, who explained the history of the garden, and why having us there helped.

Two teams, two tasks

Teams were divided into two terrific tasks. One team headed to the composting area to sift soil, in order to create fine soil, useful for gardening, and emptying one of the compost bays in the process.

The other team headed to the bamboo planters and proceeded to dig out all the dead bamboo, and transport over to the back of the compost bays.

Shortly after 8pm, we assembled for Task 2: speed harvesting. Teams divided into two to pick chard and tomatoes, and basil. And the best bit? The team were invited to take their pick of these leaves and herbs to take home!

It was a fantastic evening in an incredible spot - and an important area to cultivate...

Task owner Freya explains,

"Middlesex St Estate Community Garden is a crucial biodiversity hub for the City of London.

In a densely developed area of London, this open space is approximately the size of a football field. The residents that set up the space have prioritised planting a wide array of perennial plants, fruit trees, and native shrubs, amongst other botanical and edible varieties, which not only makes for a beautiful urban oasis for residents and vistors, is an oasis for the birds, bees, bugs, and butterflies in the area, who rely on quiet, diverse and flourishing green spaces for food and habitat."

Needless to say we can't wait to return.

Well done everyone, for a productive and fun night out yet again.

Until next time.

100 good deeds (and a lot of weeds)

Tower Hamlets Report written by Laura Williams

A small group of four jogged companionably through the streets of Bethnal Green this evening, to meet the rest of the team at our task at Oxford House.

It was a gorgeously warm evening; the streets were bustling as usual, and although busy, was nonetheless a delightful little warm-up for this evening's activity.

Slowly the team grew, until we formed two decent-sized squads: one team headed outside to clear weeds and litter from paving stones, while another headed indoors to clean glasses and glass ready for a big event.

Why were we doing this?

Oxford House's mission is to 'provide a community-led, inspiring, diverse, and sustainable multipurpose arts space.' With more and more events returning to the centre combined with fewer volunteers over the last couple of years, GoodGymers have been delighted to return to this task over the last couple of weeks, to help with painting, taping, furniture-moving and gardening.

The time flew by this evening, with many areas of moss, weeds and litter being swept up, while the inside glass-cleaning crew finished in no time, and were soon dispatched to a new glass-cleaning task.

Fun, fast and very productive, it seemed like no time at all that we were lining up on the ramp for a final group shot, promising to return soon.

The big shout-outs tonight go to the outdoor team, particularly Sian, Joel and Emma, who helped come up with tonight's pun and to our Ivy, who tonight reached her 100th good deed! (Ivy's a member of Task Force, and often leading tasks and attending socials, Parkruns, and generally out-and-about on the GoodGym circuit, contributing bundles).

A brilliant night all-round, everyone, and we look forward to returning soon.

Next week our big weekday task is taking place on Wednesday instead of Monday, and you can sign-up here.

Until then.

Aching from my head to-ma-toes

Tower Hamlets Report written by Emma Jones

Yesterday I headed to the Felix Project Warehouse in Poplar for the first time, but it certainly won't be my last! After changing into some heavy duty boots, a high vis and a quick tour of the warehouse, the team put me straight to work.

My role was picking and packing orders from surplus food that had arrived from their suppliers (food that otherwise would have been thrown away) ready to be delivered to various charities and projects.

In total, I packed 680kg worth of food, for 3 primary schools to receive on Monday morning - from potatoes, bananas and tomatoes galore, to roti's, tinned jackfruit and even kitkat muffins! Safe to say the ache today is definitely worth it.

I'll be back for sure and would recommend this mission to anyone looking to get stuck into something on a Saturday morning :-)
