There is no pleasure without paint

Ealing Report written by Kash

When schools close for half term, thereโ€™s nothing better than escaping with the whole family for a well-deserved holiday! Or is there?

For Cultivate London and GoodGymers half term has different attractions in store: speed painting walls schools while kids are away! Romina from Cultivate has been tasked to gather volunteers who would paint the hall in Berrymede School in Acton. One of the groups she had booked for mid-week has cancelled the arrangement, and another party laid the first coat of paint. It was already Saturday afternoon and the children were going back to school on Monday!

Then eight GoodGymers from Ealing and Hounslow arrived!

Aprons and latex gloves on, white paint poured into trays, rollers and brushes ready. Get, set, go!

In about 75 minutes, the GoodGym team covered the entire bottom part of the wall that needed treatment with the second coat of paint! The last ten minutes they spent perfecting the art and concealing all the visible gaps.

A good quality check was possible thanks to Madhan who found the light switch. When Romina came back from the allotment to see the result, she found that GoodGymers lived up to their reputation.

Well done guys, very impressed but kinda expected it from you ๐Ÿ˜‰

Because the whole hall was ours during the task, we put some music on. Michelle was the sound engineer and played a GoodGym-made, school-themed playlist, featuring classics like Pink Floyd.

Hey, teacher, leave them kids alone!

At the end of the session, Emmanuella, who hates waste, distributed plenty of organic brownies she had baked among the painters ๐Ÿ’š

It was the last GoodGym session before the long holiday for both Michelle and Alan. A big thank you to both of them for making it to Ealing for that one!

Fixing a hole where the rain gets in

Ealing Report written by Ealing runner

Yesterday 7 goodgymmers from far and wide joined us to help out the fabulous crew at Western Road Urban Garden in Southall.

Rain didnt defeat us and once we got there it had actually stopped!

The super 7 had walked, run (some even parkrun) and cycled their way there to join the efforts.

Milly arrived early to meet the attendees and was quickly tasked with rehoming several plantpots.

Main tasks were helping Manny with the Polytunnel, it needed a few repairs and tall people to support in the tricky corners. Sevan headed this up drawing in a crowd for support as people arrived.

The other job was digging away, turning the ground ready for some more future planting. the allotment had been left derelict for years so the thing you can find in that mud- from roman pottery to some very old glass bottles and more. kash and milly got to this with Chris, Michelle, Suz and Louis joining after the polytunnel completion.

We had a well needed samosa break and a cup of tea and set back to work! thanks to the team at western road for always looking after us!

Thank you to crew from Hounslow and Richmond Goodgym for joining!

Please check out other tasks coming up this week for more of the action!

Who needs cupid's arrow when we have bramble bashers? Let's clear the path to our hearts this Valentine's Day!

Hounslow Report written by Eloise Carey

Love was in the air, but so were brambles! Our GoodGym squad swapped roses for gloves and hearts for hedge trimmers this Valentine's Day at Gunnersbury Park. It was a date with destiny, destined to prune those prickly pests.

As cupid's archers aimed for hearts, we aimed for overgrown bushes, determined to show those brambles tough love. With each swing of the bear claws/ rakes of various sizes, we claimed the thorny tangles like a love-sick Romeo cutting through red tape.

Despite the chilly weather, our hearts were warmed by the camaraderie of fellow volunteers. We shared laughs, sweat, and maybe even a few tears as we battled those brambles, but every scratch was a badge of honor, a mark of our dedication to the cause.

The park may have been overrun with thorns, but we were the knights in shining armor, fighting to restore its beauty. And just like in any great love story, perseverance paid off. By the end of our quest, the park was looking more like a romantic getaway than a thorny labyrinth.

So, as the sun set on Valentine's Day, we left Gunnersbury Park knowing that we had not only braved the brambles but also strengthened the bonds of our community. Who needs chocolates and flowers when you have the satisfaction of a job well done and the knowledge that you've made your corner of the world a little brighter?

Until next time, remember: love may be fleeting, but a well-maintained park is forever!
