Come rain or high water: Dawson's Heights planters are filled!

Southwark Report written by Sam Lefevre (he/him)

"I promise it will stop raining as soon as we start the run"...

On a Wednesday evening in late May, one would expect it to be raining cats and dogs all day, but the forecast was set for it to stop at 19:00... 👀

Arriving early to get change and open Old Spike, Sam spotted Paulin outside the Georgian wine bar having just ordered a coffee and pastry. He was thankful that everyone that signed up started to show their face despite the rain howling it down. Nathan was back from his Central American adventures and it was great to see Alex and Tony who hadn't been around for some time. Maria, Isaac and drenched Daryl arrived all before 18:45, so Sam got going with his speech and his ice-breaker question first which was to do with Cultural Diversity Day the day before: "What culture, that is not your own, do you appreciate or are obsessed with?"

Many chose European cultures like Italian and French, but we had some Mexican, Japanese, Mauri and thinking outside the box, coffee and drinking/pub culture.


When it rains, it pours

Seeing that the Green was wet and uncut, Sam opted for the warm-up to be done in the alleyway as he proceeded to lead the group out and down along Peckham Rye park, cut onto Dunstan's Road before we all took our time to run up Overhill and then Underhill Roads. Thanks to Maria for backmarking. It all started off dry with a pause in the rain, but as we rushed up that hill the taps were turned on again.

We met James who cycled and Emma who walked from her house viewings with Ellie and the residents of Dawson's Heights. It was great to see Ellie again after months away and we were here to start on a project that was planned for last summer. The planters were already established from earlier in the week by Dentsu. Our task for tonight was to fill these planters with compost. Ellie had 40 out of the 90 bags, delivered earlier in the week, in her garage. The team all went over to work in pairs to haul them from the garage to the community garden space (about 20-25 metres) away utilising their sheer strength and a couple of sack trucks. This was all happening whilst Sam was putting on some mixed tunes and Maria opted to help with drilling holes in the planters to ensure there is drainage.

Once the team brought out the 40 bags, we filled the planters with the compost in minutes! Noticing that we still had 10 minutes left despite the rain bashing our bodies, we helped the residents re-plant herbs, fruits and veg whist James and Nathan sowed seeds hoping for squash and courgettes to grow, but expecting a giant bean stalk...

We ended the session with a quick weeding and pruning near the forest to ensure the berry trees could stand a chance to grow whilst Sam prepared gingerbread biscuit/cake that he brought back from his travels in Grasmere over the weekend. Breaking up the 6 big pieces of gingerbread into smaller sharable chunks, everyone enjoyed the delicacy of this famous little shop in Cumbria, but none other so than James.

After a quick group photo and our goodbyes, we took in the views from Dawson's Hill before rushing off downhill for a quick stretch and impromptu drinks at Nags Head.


Thank You to all the GG-ers

A personal thanks from me to all those who came out last night as it wasn't pleasant with the rain, but we made most of the situation! Kudos to all and if I don't see you next week, see you soon!

Two tasks means double trouble

Southwark Report written by Sam Lefevre (he/him)

Another week goes by and another two newbies. Well, technically, Sana has done a few community sessions with BFC, but this was her first group run and she brought along Kp who came to claim her first good deed! Cecilia was back! Great to know she enjoyed the first session and wanted to come back for more.

As Old Spike filled up, Sam got started with his intro speech earlier as the group had to split up and go to two tasks. Yes, not everyday we have two tasks, but there was a call-out for GoodGym to help out at an urgent task and we responded. Before we got on with the running, Sam asked his ice-breaker question first which was: "Who would you write a fan fiction book about / what would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?"

Only Nelly and Sam relieved their fan fiction book, which would be based on Hopper from Stranger Things and Taylor Swift, respectively. Others opted for the latter question and people had topics like breeds of dogs and cats, nature and artists from specific dates...Justin Bieber from 2009 - 2012, anyone?


Spick and span

After a quick warm up on the Green, Sam led Roberta, Fi, Nelly and David on a run to Sedan Way/ East Street to fill planters with topsoil as they weaved their way around people on Rye Lane and the Surrey Canal Walk before cutting through Burgess Park to get there within just over 20 minutes to meet Peter, Ed and Vic. They used the 35 minutes they had to fill 3 planters out of 5 whilst listening to the Eurovision playlist... Meanwhile, Maria and Emma worked as a team to led and backmark the second group consisting of Andrada, Cecilia, Kp, Rosalind and Sana as they met Valentina, Elena, Isaac and Phil there. The team split into two, one focusing on the gardening and tidying up the outside whilst the other half concentrated on window cleaning. They did both tasks with efficiency as they were done before 20:00 and opted to set out of their run back earlier.

As both teams ran their routes back, they bumped into each other on Rye Lane with around 500 metres to go! Great timing team as they could stretch and do the cool down together. Thanks to Emma for backmarking and walking back with Kp and Sana.


Thank You to all the GG-ers

A personal thanks from me to all those who came out last week! Congrat again to the newbies; Kp and Sana for coming along and hope you had a lovely first group run session with us. Kudos to all!

A hole in the Galleywall

Southwark Report written by Southwark runner

Last night, 14 Goodgymmers came out to help out at Galleywall Nature Reserve.

First to arrive at our meeting point, Old Spike, was Steve, who had been away recently. Whilst we caught up, newbie Chong arrived - and then nipped back out to check out a bike shop. Similarly, Isaac came dashing in, only to dash back out to do a quick lap of the Rye. Emma, Sarah, Nelly, Fi, Tim and Katy arrived and stayed 😅

Once everyone had arrived, I started welcome speech, and we gave a proper welcome to Chong. Our ice breaker question this week was related to the task... "Imagine we're going on a nature walk together, what do you see?". Tim started us off with a caterpillar, Chong gave some insight into his favourite sports team, and everyone else built a beautiful scene with a river, a waterfall, some salmon swimming in the river, some light filtering through the trees...🥹. It was a great team effort!

After a quick warm-up, we set off on our 4k run to Galleywall. I think it was the warmest day we've had this year, so it was a sweaty one!

When we arrived at Galleywall, James, Richard, Daryl and Andrada were already there. Eddie from Galleywall welcomed us and explained to us the task: we had to move some logs out of a ditch, and then put them back in a less haphazard manner, so that it would be safe for children.

Even though outcome was clear, we were not certain about how to achieve it initially. Steve came up with the idea of taking everything out the ditch, and then putting the big things back first, to give a stable base, so we rolled with that. We got into pairs and started to self-organise, and we completed the task surprisingly quickly.

Eddie came to inspect out work, and during this, he had the idea to dismantle some of the bug hotels so that people at the bus stop would be able to look through the "windows" to see into the nature reserve. After some discussion and experimentation, we opened up two windows.

At some point Daryl got separately picked to mow the grass.

Just as I started to worry that there may not be enough work for us, Eddie came round with laminated booklets which was a guided nature walk of the nature reserve. We split off into fours and off we went!

We finished at 8pm exactly to run/walk/cycle back to Peckham, perfect timing for our social at Skylarking. 🍻

Hedging our bets to get this task done on time

Southwark Report written by Sam Lefevre (he/him)

It was great to put up Old Spike Peckham and welcome back Sophie who has been in Australia for the past few months. It was also good to see Lucy who hadn't been around these past few weeks. As Maria, Isaac, Rosalind, Daryl, Paulin came in, they discussed about the precious six inches of top soil that is the life blood of humanity. Some deep stuff and quite fitting as our ice breaker snap poll had to do with Earth Day: if you had to go with one policy: clean the ocean of plastics, stop deforestation or embrace cleaner and sustainable energy, which one would you go for? As it hit 18:45, Sam got on with his usual speech and asked for his ice breaker question, he asked which charity people have run or would run for if they did the London Marathon?

In the snap-poll, most want to embrace cleaner and sustainable energy, a couple said clean the ocean and no one went for deforestation. For the marathon question, we had a variety of charities including GoodGym.


Bath time

Opting for a warm up in the alleyway due to the route taking us out that way, Sam had to do a quick warm-up as the ice-breaker question took too long. With Maria backmarking, off the group went through the backstreets of Peckham/East Dulwich to arrive at East Dulwich station, through the park and the backroute to get to Sunray Avenue near North Dulwich. They had to push and run up the hill for the final part to make it to Denmark Hill Community Garden. Here they met Rose, her partner, Richard just arrived and shortly afterwards so too did Jo and Phil. After a quick introduction, Rose outlined the two main tasks. Firstly, to move three bathtubs out of the way to make space and room for the second task. The second task was to dig a trench a spade deep and a forearm wide.

We split into teams with the girls diving into moving the bath tubs as a group. Paulin, Sophie, Lucy and Rosalind took on the first bath tub finding it somewhat easier than it looked as these bathtubs were filled with soil. The others soon followed to move tub two and three, but Louise, Maria and Jo picked up the dutch hoe and shovels to make a start on the trench. With limited tools, each person took it in turn to help out dig this trench as we soon realised it would be harder than we thought as we couldn't dig deeper than 20 centimetres before encounting gravel and brick. We realised with 10 minutes left that we could only prepare as much as we could and opted to come back next Wednesday - splitting the group with one half going to Thorlands Gardens in Camberwell and the other coming back here.

All was not lost as we had the first HIIT session with Louise and Jo being the only ones joining in and right at the end, we were treated to fresh mint tea, which was a blessing as the night took a cold turn after such a promising sunny start.

After sipping down a warm cuppa, we ran down the hill down to Old Spike in no time and made it back for 20:30.


Thank You to all the GG-ers

A personal thanks from me to all those who came out last night! Rose was really pleased that we made a start and happy that we can come back next Wednesday to finish the job. Thank you to Maria and Paulin for backmarking.

Level 10 Litter

Lewisham Report written by Kim Parker

This group run was a 2 task week and we had 12 wonderful GG-ers ready to tackle the litter at The Albany and the mulch at the Tiny Forest

We gathered outside Glass Mill and as I approached it was great to see a group forming after last week's bank holiday lowering our group run numbers. We split into groups and one group headed to the Tiny Forest guided by Steve and photographer for the evening Julian and the other group to The Albany with me.

The Tiny Forest team were joined by Linda and a couple of Tree Keepers and most importantly joined by Suki - our favourite Tiny Forest dog! There was lots of mulch to be moving to the main Tiny Forest (we covered the extension last week) and involved filling buckets and pouring those over the fence.

Meanwhile at The Albany....there was barely any litter!! That's never happened in the history of group runs at The Albany, usually its a satisfying clean up of all the cans and chicken shop wrappers that have blown in from the streets.

We did still fill 3 GIANT bin bags, when I say fill I mean to about 50% as they were so big I could fit in them and they got heavy quite quickly, with the litter, not with me in them! The litter we did find was described as level 10 litter i.e. nappies etc not pleasant - bring back the cans and chicken shop wrappers (although no litter at all would be encouraged)!

At both tasks it started to rain slightly then it started to pour down!! We made the decision to pack up our litter picking at the same time as the Tiny Forest text to say the rain was too much and they were heading back to Glass Mill.

We regrouped at Glass Mill and headed off for our social at the local, Guardian recommended Turkish restaurant. After some confusion over the booking which Marta handled, we were all seated and ready for a catch up and refuel.

Hills, hills, hills 💗💙⚽

Southwark Report written by Sam Lefevre (he/him)

Andrada, Adrian, Annika, Isaac, Izzy, Jessie, Maria and Sam met outside Champion Hill, the home of Dulwich Hamlet, to support the Women's team.

Despite it being slightly windy, we had pints in our hands and the sun was shining as we watched the Women's team take a massive step to promotion with a 2-1 victory over Dorking Wanderers. This was also helped by the fact Fulham in third place thrashed Dartford in second.

With the final home game being next Sunday, a few of us are tempted to support the girls one last time for this fantastic season ⚽
