A beautiful day with a magnificent person.

Haringey Report written by Kubilay Kara

I visited Mrs. J's home around 11 and had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with this lovely person. I promptly began working on the front garden, accompanied by the beautiful Pink Floyd tunes coming from her house. I trimmed the bushes, removed dead branches and weeds, and picked up small bits of trash that had blown into the garden. After sweeping and cleaning, I was pleased to see that the front yard was looking better. But above all, Mrs. J seemed happy about the work I had done in two hours. I took great pleasure in being able to assist her, even though it was not much.

I didn't have time to work on the backyard, but I look forward to doing it if another opportunity arises.

Back garden tidy up for Mrs J (flexible timings*) (Wk1)

Having her backyard done would positively benefit her mental wellbeing as she will be able to go out to sit down and enjoy it.

Litter picking and pecking chicks!

Barnet Report written by Paul Salman

**A Magical Evening with GoodGym: Running and Birding watching in HighGate Woods.

Last night, our GoodGym crew gathered at the iconic Phoenix Cinema, ready for an adventure that combined fitness, community, and nature. As the warm spring sun set, we embarked on a scenic run through Cherry Tree Woods, enjoying the crisp, clean air and the beautiful green light filtering through the trees.

Our destination: Highgate Woods, where we were greeted by Cindy, the local ranger. The evening's mission was twofold: pick up litter and locate woodpecker nests. Cindy's passion for the woods was contagious as she demonstrated how to identify a woodpecker nest, guiding us to one where we could hear the chicks calling to their parents. It was a magical moment, reminding us of the wonders of nature that surround us.

Armed with this newfound knowledge, we spread out to explore the forest. As we picked up litter, we kept our ears tuned for the telltale sounds of woodpecker chicks. By the end of the evening, we had discovered three nests and cleared away bits of litter, feeling a deep sense of connection with the woods.

Mapping the nests for Cindy, we were treated to a special view from a nearby blue tit nest camera, offering a glimpse into the lives of these beautiful birds. On our way back, we couldn't resist using the outdoor fitness equipment to add an extra boost to our run.

Returning to the Phoenix Cinema, we wrapped up the evening with refreshments and a chat, sharing our experiences and enjoying the camaraderie that defines GoodGym. It was a perfect blend of fitness, environmental stewardship, and community spirit—a truly unforgettable evening in the heart of nature.

Running for a Cause: A GoodGym Barnet Tale of Scanners and Scenic heath

Barnet Report written by Paul Salman

Kubilay and I were on a mission: to save Parkrun from the dreaded fate of cancellation due to a lack of volunteers. Armed with our enthusiasm and matching GoodGym shirts, we braved the initially rainy Hampstead Heath, determined to make a difference. As we arrived, the beauty of the ancient trees and the camaraderie of fellow volunteers instantly lifted our spirits.

Assigned to barcode scanning duty, Kubilay and I became the gatekeepers of data, diligently recording each runner’s ID and finishing position. We felt like secret agents of the running world, gathering intel for the greater good of Parkrun statistics. The runners, grateful for our efforts, showered us with thanks!

After the last runner crossed the finish line, we triumphantly packed up our scanning equipment and headed for a well-deserved coffee break. As we sat in a nearby manor house, sipping our drinks and basking in the satisfaction of a job well done, we couldn’t help but marvel at the unexpected adventure volunteering had turned out to be. Who knew saving Parkrun could be so exhilarating?

Raking in the miles to Martin primary School.

Barnet Report written by Paul Salman

Greetings, GoodGym enthusiasts! Last night's escapade was nothing short of a woodland wonderland adventure at Martin Primary School's enchanted forest paths. Our mission? To spruce up those trails so the kiddos can frolic freely amidst nature's embrace.

We rendezvoused at the bustling Phoenix Cinema, amidst the buzz of a new NHS film echoing through the halls. But fear not, for our hearts were set on a different kind of rescue mission: to save Martin Primary's forest paths from the clutches of neglect.

As the cool evening ended, we kicked off with a vigorous warm-up routine - lifting knees, back kicks, and even a spot of skipping (a skill I've yet to master, I must confess). Alas, a pesky injury confined me to two wheels, but fear not, I pedaled alongside, cheering on our gallant runners.

Under the adept leadership of Beattie ,and with Rachel as our trusty rear guard, our spirited squad embarked on our woodland odyssey. And lo and behold, we welcomed Asia our newest recruit, who bravely tackled the trails with aplomb, proving that running prowess knows no bounds.

Upon meeting John, our woodland wizard, we delved into the task at hand - excavating woodchip, ferrying it in wheelbarrows and wheelie bins, and sprinkling it like forest fairy dust over the paths. With every scoop and rake, we carved out paths fit for the wildest of adventures.

But our work was not done yet! With the cool evening air invigorating our spirits, we indulged in a brief but exhilarating HIIT session - press-ups, squats, and Kubilay sprints, oh my! Great effort from Tom and Two sets later, our muscles tingling with satisfaction, we bid adieu to our woodland haven and made a beeline for the Phoenix.

With weary limbs and contented hearts, we gathered in the foyer for a final stretch, the echoes of cinema-goers' laughter fading into the night. And as we toasted to another successful mission, I couldn't help but marvel at the magic we conjured amidst the trees, and the camaraderie that binds us together in our noble quest.

Until next time, dear comrades, keep on running, keep on giving, and keep on spreading the GoodGym love!
