Weed, donโ€™t need no vegetation

Bromley Report written by Mark Gilyead (he/him)

11 legends used their Monday night to get in a jog and a good weeding deed for TNG Youth Centre.

We kicked off the evening with names and the place weโ€™d love to wake up in. Some spectacular choices ranging from Patagonia to Japan to Antarctica.

After a quick warm up we headed to Sydenham. This was a DIY session with nothing but us, our gloves and the weeds.

Some nasty brambles were no match for Molly, and Adam cleverly suggested a spot in the bushes across the road for our piles of vegetation ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Once we'd scraped, yanked and whispered (yup) all the weeds out, we headed round the corner to the (apparently) famous 'SNUFFLE' - a wine bar, cafe and dog groomers/spa, "probably for tax reasons", said Emma.

We headed back via a different route. We had a wallsit competition. Cat won! ๐Ÿ†

And finally we did some stretches and a few of us had a beverage. NICE.

Toad-ally Awesome!

Bromley Report written by Mark Gilyead (he/him)

A toad-ally awesome 11 of us met up last night for a jog and some good deeding.

We were joined for the first time by Tim and Adam - welcome! ๐Ÿ™Œ

After a naming and fave biscuit loop, we hit the road. Hannah and Molly took the shorter, direct route, whilst the rest of us opted for the longest hill ever.

We arrived to meet John who was fully prepared with tools.

The water tower base at Crystal Palace Museum is an amazing historic structure and the museum team are keen to clear it out of soil, weeds and rubble so that it can be safely accessed as part of visitorsโ€™ museum experiences.

We focussed on a couple of specific areas, aiming to reach down to the concrete and pipes below.

John found a massive toad, hence the pun! ๐Ÿธ

10+ bucket-loads of soil sieved later, we called it a day and headed back down the hill for some stretches.

Great stuff everyone ๐Ÿฅณ

With great power walking, comes great tree-sponsibility

Bromley Report written by Mark Gilyead (he/him)

Fresh off the back off a smashing January Challenge, 11 amazing human beings came out tonight for a dark task in the park.

We met at the Bridge House, shared our favourite types of cake (no gluten free, egg free, dairy free chocolate party cakes to be seen), and made our way to Cator Park.

โšก๏ธ Hannah, Hannah and Clare did a POWER WALK.

๐Ÿ” The rest of us did a stupid loop before heading down the hill (Note to self: Always plan the route beforehand...)


We met Millie from the Friends of Cator & Alexandra Parks, grabbed tools from the container and got to work on two tasks:

1๏ธโƒฃ Trimming bush - The path that runs alongside the park is very neat in places but not where we were. There was ivy, branches sticking out and loads of head-height vegetation that meant people were walking on the grass to avoid getting speared. We were trimming it back and making the path significantly wider in the process. Nice.

2๏ธโƒฃ Slicing the mud pie - Just inside the park, the path was getting swallowed. Equipped with shovels we were slicing the mud away to find the border. Clare did a fine job freeing the bollard (see pic).


A very satisfying session and 2 paths freed up from the claws of nature. We love nature, but it's also nice to have space to walk/scooter/wheelchair/buggy/run on.

Well done team :) โœจ

Scrubbing up well

Bromley Report written by Cat

Our first volunteering session at Penge East Community Centre got off to a great start when we were greeted by a very friendly cat and an excellent selection of garden ornaments (see photos).

Once we'd all assembled, Gill set us to work cleaning the centre's windows, which had got quite cobweb-by. Many hands made light work of this task and we managed to wash, rinse and dry all the windows and doors (inside and out!) in less than 45 minutes. Speedy work team!

Thanks to everyone who gave up their Sunday afternoon to volunteer and I hope we can organise more tasks with PECC in the future.

Blindweed by the light (500 times)

Bromley Report written by Bromley runner

Our last Group Run of January, and what a way to blast out! ๐Ÿ’ฅ We had a very special milestone to celebrate - read on to find out more....

January Challenge

Plus we were on 87 good deeds and with over 10 signups, reaching our target of 100 good deeds in the January challenge was tantalisingly close. What seemed an outlandish doubling of our 2023 target was now a realistic goal ๐ŸŽฏ

A roadblock appeared, however. Winter ๐ŸŒจ๏ธ is a notoriously difficult period to find tasks at times, but not for lack of trying. Mark managed to line up a task for us a couple of days before the run, though it sadly got cancelled on Monday afternoon, requiring some quick thinking ๐Ÿค”

Best laid plans

Mark suggested we split into two groups - some guerilla gardeners to weed unloved planters ๐Ÿชด by Kent House station, and GoodGym promoters ๐Ÿƒ putting up postcards on noticeboards to tell the world (well, Penge and Crystal Palace) what we do.

After introducing ourselves with a contender for the most odd question of the week ever (Which toothpaste do you use? ๐Ÿชฅ), we prepared to divide. The promoters further split into two teams led by Cat and me (Stephen). We fought with rock, paper, scissors for who would go up the hill to Crystal Palace; Cat's scissors โœ‚๏ธ resigned me and my paper ๐Ÿ“ฐ to the steep incline and won her Penge.

Up the hill, down the hill

I wasn't alone, though, as David, Harry and Renier also volunteered for the harder route, and the band of merry men headed off for higher altitudes โ›ฐ๏ธ. Mega shout out to David for pluckiness in seeing if newsagents, restaurants - anyone, really - would host our postcards in their window. We got positive response from numerous places we'd never promoted with before, and this was on Anerley Hill before we got near to The Triangle ๐Ÿ˜€

Mark's and Cat's teams flew towards Penge, with Team Green (Fingers) getting to work on the weeds at Kent House.

All together now

We met back at the Bridge House to hear each others' task stories and prepared to surprise an unsuspecting GoodGym'er, for it was none other than Mark's 500th good deed, an occasion demanding cake ๐ŸŽ‚ and an amazingly augmented card and badge from Hannah!

Congratulations Mark! ๐Ÿ‘

100 club

We're now a good deed shy of 100 - our goal is within reach and will surely be toppled before the month is done. Well done everyone who participated and helped us get there ๐Ÿฅณ
