We like to move it…..move it

Newham Report written by Sharon Prince

A late leadership change due to Brahma being on good husband duties meant Kev taking the lead....well I nominated him once we arrived at the Crisis Warehouse

It was great to have Hugh Jeans join us big thanks to Amy and Olivia for letting us have for the evening.

Office furniture moving was the task for this evening.....the moving part was the easiest working out the best position for the desk and getting some units up the stairs was slightly trickier but we got there in the end after a couple of false starts

Helen was our expert with the wheeled trolly ensuring smooth movement of the items.

Simon and Dan did and awesome job with traversing the cupboards up the stairs.

Ruth Hils and Eugene did a brilliant job balancing the desk while Kevin screwed it back together.

With a final full team effort the last of the donated furniture was placed in the call centre ready for the Crisis at Christmas volunteers who will be working here over the next few weeks.

Mission complete we headed of into the now cold night promising Richard we would return in 2022 to dismantle it all again ready for the warehouse to be refurbished.

As You Sow, Social You Reap

Newham Report written by Brahma Pochee

Was a bit enthusiastic about this run, for three reasons:

  • Very healthy sign ups, creeping up to pre-virus levels, with some new faces to meet and some old ones to catch up with.

  • First time checking out out Print House, what a classy new base it is, fertile ground for socials, nice and spacious inside, warm staff and a handy location to set off from.

  • It was a beautiful clear bright sky all day, autumnal temperature sure, but that's perfect for running.

Did our normal warm up at outside Print House, then a run through some race reports from Lil and Siobhan at Hackney. Lil's first one, you can extract huge confidence from that, and Siobhan ticking off another 13.1 miles, not her best, but that's okay. Then our RWQ: "What are you looking forward to this Autumn?" Wearing a thick knitted jumper, a sunny trip to Spain, sporting a new autumn coat, taking in Croatia, running London Marathon, running Chester Marathon, Christmas (!) and riding a new tandem bike. A plethora of excitement in store for GGN runners.

Once at Cody Dock, the inimitable Basia instructed us to assist with some wood based tasks; oiling and sanding. Three groups went off into different stretches of the docks and completed their jobs. Kev, Dan and I were oiling, having less height than the other two, I was deemed the sacrificial lamb to enter the large wooden box, in order to reach the hard to get to places. On all fours head first, and basically trapped in, compromised is the word that springs to mind.

We had a nice trot back to base for our last Weds of the month social. Pizzas and refreshments were had, races tactics were discussed, nutritional strategies analysed - a wholesome evening in all.

We are back on an every Wednesday Group Run schedule, so block out your calendars and let's build some routine. Next week we are at Manorfield Primary School, sign up here, helping them shift 5 tonnes of compost.

Have a great weekend, especially you marathoners.

Good weed of the day

Newham Report written by Sharon Prince

A Thursday evening mission for us this week but sadly 3 of the sign ups couldn't make it. We lost Brahma and Kevin to man flu.......thankfully they are both made of strong stuff so I'm sure we shall see them soon and Hilary got hit by the NHS 'ping'

Justin joined us for his 4th community mission this week....great work Justin see you in a few weeks.

Weeding and plant thinning were the orders for this evening.

Paul and I wrangled the bindweed while Justin and Helen weeded the raised beds.

I continued wresting the bindweed and Paul started to add wood chippings to the base of the fruit trees and the path,which hopefully will help slow down the weeds returning.

Miriam helped with the thinning of the seedlings helping ensure a good crop,they may be some goodies to harvest next time we visit.

Abbey Gardens hold weekly evening community sessions and the last Saturday of the month.

We shall be joining them on Saturday 31st July signup
