What do you do with a drunken wheelbarrow?

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

It was a brisk and bracing winter evening this Monday- one that encourages double socks, and thick long sleeve tops to stay warm! However, 9 top Goodgymmers joined us this week for our run over to Highbury Quadrant Estate from The Emirates Stadium (including new runner Alex- welcome and Thanks for joining us!)

We performed a warm-up together on the slope leading over to Danny Fiszmann Bridge, before taking on the Aubert Park slope over to Blackstock Road. We reached our destination just by Clissold Park, where local resident Matthew was ready to meet us with instructions. Goodgym Islington have had a hand in a lot of the construction for these particular community flower beds and planters.

We picked up loads of shovels, spades and wheelbarrows from the Highbury Quadrant Estate Meadow, and went straight to work with moving the very last bags of soil away from the estate. One of the barrows did prove to be a bit dodgy, and had a tendency to wobble and squeak- a spritz of WD-40 did wonders though!

A curious teenage fox watched us from a safe distance, wondering what these red t-shirt wearing folks were up to! Within 25-30 minutes, the bags were light enough to be transported to a new gardening plot, without the need of further shoveling, so we worked together to drop the final load of soil for this ambitious project!

Perfect timing for #WorldSoilDay!

World Cup? Rose Bowl!

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

This evening, Claire, Katie and Adam joined Area Activator Simon for a run over to wonderful Rose Bowl Youth Centre in Canonbury, taking a spin past Highbury Fields on route. The Rose Bowl is a super active community space, operating as a youth club, social centre, food bank and a recording studio! Upon our arrival, we met with Dawn (the project coordinator) and Natasha and were lead put to the main play area of the youth club.

Our task for the evening was simple, but an important task for active people in greater numbers! Wielding rakes, gloves and plastic grabbers, we sought about collecting as much foliage and fallen leaf waste from the playground as possible, and attempting to compost a good portion of these leaves where possible. The kids in the area play on the football pitch a lot, and it was great know that were making the outdoors more available to them!

We successfully filled up 3 really large builders merchants bags within 30-40 minutes of team work, with was very impressive for our small crew. On our journey back to The Emirates Stadium, we stopped at the "M" entrance gate to host our December "Goodgym Islington Emirates Stadium Time Trial" (last one of the year). Our runners did a smashing job of running the 700m stretch, especially after an evening of hard graft- Well Done All!
