For tonight's sesh we were up at the Crystal Palace Museum, spending a little more time digging out soil in the old Water Tower base. It's Grade 2 listed so I guess we're kind of like archaeologists? The plan is for it to be open to the public occasionally and one day, maybe even an actual working part of the museum?!
GoodGym Gives You Wiiiiiiings!
100 good deeds not out. Incredible pub quizzer, top TaskForcer and a rock solid pair of hands, Stephen is now the owner of a winged GoodGym t-shirt. 100 good deeds for community projects and older people is a serious achievement. 👏👏👏 💯
Not sure that’s okay to put in big bold letters but whatever.
We split into two groups for separate runs through/around the park. Stephen and Clare led the longer run round, which left Hannah, Richard and I heading up through the middle. Lots of talk about GoodGyming over the years in our group...
We met John who gave us tools and we cracked on:
🌱 Removing little weeds
🛒 Sifting soil through a trolley (as you do)
🧱 Moving bricks and rubble to the side
The aim was to dig down until we hit concrete, which we achieved in several places! 🥳
It’s all downhill from here!
We had a short jog back to base with some wallsits and squats en route.
Great job everyone - See you next time!

Whoops! We had a last minute change of plan tonight but no worries, Millie had a backup task for us: collecting Christmas trees to be used as deadwood in Cator Park. Having trained our eyes to spot Christmas trees from a mile off last week, we were well equipped.
First, we met up in the Bridge House and shared our fave smells. We had the classics (freshly cut grass and petrol) and some more classy choices (sandalwood and New Zealand forests).
Then we hit the road in two groups, long and short distances before meeting outside Cator Park. Then we split in three to hunt down the trees.
Cat and co took a loop around Beckenham, Hannah and her team headed around the nearby streets and my wee gang went across the train line.
Compared to last week we had a very different haul - some absolute beasts and some tiny, trimmed trees.
I'm sure they will be greatly appreciated by the park team and probably used as some kind of habitat to increase biodiversity.
Nice work, everybody!

Shout out to James for pun creation! 💥
It's the first group run of the year which can only mean one thing...
Our annual Christmas tree collection extravaganza!
Tonight's haul was reasonably successful actually - especially as we picked up our smallest and largest trees ever!
First up we met at the Bridge House and shared what we were looking forward to about the new year - some good goodgym intentions and some looovely holiday destinations.
We hit the road straight away, powering towards Mayow Park in Sydenham. From there we split into 3 teams to scan the area for discarded firs.
TREEMENDOUS TREECYCLING EVERYONE.
The streets are looking clearer and safer and the trees will be blitzed into pieces to be used in local parks 🙌
