Bromley Report written by Mark Gilyead
Last night we had an outstanding octet of GoodGymmers running up and down a big hill (twice) and bagging a good deed in the process.
We met at the Bridge House, shared our dream living location (because the weather lately has been pretty dreary) and then we made our way up CP Park Road before descending to our task.
Lots of drama in this weeks task...
We met Jack (and Hannah and Alex) at the pretty damn impressive Kingswood House, a Manor House located in the middle of a housing estate. Mad. Jack gave us the lowdown on how he’d pitched a project turning the unused space into a community arts hub. It’s gonna be really cool.
Caught in the act.
His task for us involved moving a whole lot of furniture. There was a big room full of it, some which needed moving to other parts of the building and the rest which needed to be rearranged to sit more snugly in the room.
🪑 First up we piled up and moved the chairs to one side of the room. Clare exclusively moved the wheely chairs.
🔩 Then we shifted some dismantled shelves downstairs as well as some big metal tables.
🪖 Hannah and Alex found an old knights helmet. This was not part of the brief but it looked nice (see pics) despite smelling awful apparently.
🔗 We finished off moving all the shelving and tables into the basement via a well coordinated human chain. The conveyor belt system worked a dream and we sent all the gear downstairs, with time to visit a super creepy room where a dog had clearly been scratching at the door :(
We bid Jack farewell and headed home with some more excellent jogging up and over the hill.
Amazing stuff everyone! ✌️

After a couple of months away from Beckenham Green for the winter, we returned to help the Friends plant some new saplings, right some that had fallen astray, and push back some ivy that was making itself a bit too at home. It didn't rain while we were there but the drizzle of the last few days made the soil really nice to work with!
Mark joined for his first Beckenham Green session, and it was George's first ever GoodGym task - welcome!
We found two existing saplings that were starting to bud, and named them appropriately ^^ (photos included).
Thanks for the help - we'll head back to the Green in April!
