Open House, in the middle of our street

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

On the Saturday afternoon of the long weekend, Area Activator Simon met with Giovanna and the team from Levitt Bernstein Architects on Thane Villas in preparation for the London Open House Festival. Levitt Bernstein are one of London's leading housing architecture firms, and have been gracious in inviting Goodgym Islington to be involved with the show!

The crew have collaborated with community groups from Islington, Harringay and Hackney to discuss future development projects within the boroughs (especially around the Finsbury Park interchange). A huge illustrated map was produced specially for the event, with feedback stickers provided for all to contribute.

At 3pm, Simon, Jo, Anne and Patrick set off on our scheduled 6km run around the Islington borough, linking some of our favourite Goodgym tasks on route. We ran together to Tufnell Park Plant Nursery, and then along Pankhurst Road over to Penn Road Gardens (we have a community mission here on Sunday!). Passing the Caravan Coffee Roasting Shed, we approached Caledonian Park and jogged around the perimeter of the park (via the junior parkrun course and past the new pond building project). Market Road Gardens was our final destination (a beautiful semi-wild permaculture garden off Caledonian Road), before our return trip to The Emirates Stadium and Kinloch Gardens.

Congratulations all, Thank you for a lovely run together!

Gravel pit

Hackney Report written by Joel Wiles

7 Amazing GoodGymers swept their way to glory helping Springfield park clear away a cubic tonne of excess gravel from the court yard.

Great to celebrate 200 fantastic GoodDeeds from superstar GoodGymer Anne. an amazing achievement of dedication over a number if years and having massive impact in the local community! Quality celebratory cake and card sorted out by Liz!!

A big welcome to GG first timer Natalie who smashed her first session! look forward to seeing you on many more GoodGym sessions!

A proper physical challenge sweeping up the excess gravel from the courtyard to all safe travel over it. using all the brooms to get really stuck in then shoveling and wheelbarrowing the gravel and making a big gravel pile out of the way.

A full cubic tonne and a patch the size of a 5 a side football pitch cleared in 45 action packed minutes!!

Top work team!!
