Maggie completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Maggie was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.

Disturbing the Soil Worms

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

A Return to Caxton House Community Gardens

This week, Area Activator Simon caught up with 9 Goodgymmers from all across town between Archway underground station and Caxton House Community Gardens. Continuing our regular walking groups (runs will return on Monday 13th May!), our team arrived outside the centre and met with Rose and a big crowd of local volunteers, all on hand to help out for an evening of lifting and shifting.

The plan is to make a start on building a lovely new sensory garden- ready for new bulbs and plants to be prepared in June (we will definitely be returning to help out!). First things first, our crew picked up shovels and forks to dig up masses of old soil, and bagging the mud up for other projects. Emre did a smashing job of wheelbarrowing the full bags to the garden entrance gate, ready of pick up. Emily and Sally also helped with weeding the pavements on the main courtyard, and gathering sycamore seeds from the surfaces (these can be invasive and quick growing- best to pick them up ASAP!).

After 45 minutes of digging and jaffa cakes, our crew successfully pulled out an abundance of plastic piping, left behind from previous garden users. A difficult job, very well done! Excellent work everyone.

Together, we walked back toward the underground station, before popping in for refreshments, pizza and Scrabble at The Archway Tavern for our monthly social.

Lethal Weapons for Weeds

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

After a glorious Easter weekend, our Goodgym Islington team returned for an unusual Tuesday evening group session, over in Canonbury (sandwiched between Islington and Dalston]. Area Activator Simon met with Dan (running down the canal towpaths in the rain!) and Charlotte (first time attendee- welcome) for a walk/hobble to The Rose Bowl Youth Club on Ramsey Walk.

We were greeted by the lovely Dawn, the top coordinator for this active community hub and after school club, and shown the way to the main playground area. Easter Holidays for local schools have kept the centre busy, so our help is hugely appreciated!

Maggie, Anne and Charlotte were offered a collection of funky looking gardening group tools, and assisted with some super satisfying weeding around a bed of newly planted fruit trees. Charlotte used a special trowel with a serrated edge to dig out some stubborn roots around the unwanted greenery, and Anne used what could only be described as a weed scooper to pop the roots straight out of the ground without having to stretch! Genius!

Maggie was in charge of raking over a bare patch of a former gardening bed, before spreading some new grass seeds across the patch. We might be able to see some growth next time we visit! Dan and Caitlin started the session with some lifting and shifting tasks, and then swept up slippery leaves and debris from the access ramps to the playground (to avoid possible trips and falls).

Together, we pitched in a solid 30 minutes of help in a very wet evening. Congratulations everyone!

We will be visiting Elizabeth House Food Hub next Monday at 6pm to help with local food bank deliveries!
