Great task, lovely to catch up with lots of Good Gymers and get a work out barrowing soil from A to B - task ably led by the excellent Emma.Thanks Pam and Ash for hosting us, good luck with the growing season and developing the plot.

Raking Bad

Tower Hamlets Report written by Laura Williams

A mild, bright evening saw 17 GoodGymers head to Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park for a goose-grass and cow parsley bonanza tonight.

We started with 15 minutes of fitness outside the park office, which saw us welcome Nick to his first GoodGym, joined shortly by fellow first timers, Nia and Becky.

Speeding through the weekly lunge selection; adding in a little light upper body work, and finishing with a range of stretches, we managed to get through quite a lot in a short space of time.

Heading over to the well-stocked tool shed, we were greeted by Ken, who had wheelbarrows, rakes and gloves galore ready, and promptly led the way to our spot for tonight's task.

Background to the task

Our regular visits to the park, overseen by experienced Park Manager Ken, always ensure the week gets off to a good start. Although the park has a fantastic team, and a steady stream of volunteers, a decent-sized group of GoodGymers never goes amiss at this picturesque local spot.

Spread out over four corners in total this evening, we raked and plucked at these pesky weeds, which, given half the chance, would take over the park. It was a decent workout, particularly with the wheelbarrow runs to the big weed pile, and most importantly, we made a decent dent in the weeds in this area.

The team didn't stop (well, only to pose patiently for pics, and debate the all-important issue of tonight's pun, who we have Lukas to thank for, but our Emma's fantastic effort absolutely did not go unappreciated).

At around 7:45, we lined up wheelbarrows, collected gloves, and posed for one last pic before speeding back to base.

A brilliant evening once again!

Next week, Emma leads our Monday night activity to Rocky Park, complete with run from the gorgeous Town Hall Hotel!

Until then.

Six Appeal

Tower Hamlets Report written by John Shirley

The appeall went out. Deliveries were arriving at the food bank on Sunday, and volunteers were needed to unload the goodies and sort the food, ready to be collected by the bank's customers the following morning,

GoodGymers responded: there was a group of six of us there on Sunday afternoon, and we worked quickly and efficiently. But we weren't quick enough for some of the "use by" dates on the packaging,; we didn't want to be poisoning anyone, that's just not one of GoodGym's stated aims.

Lobo was there before any of us; if any volunteering is happening in the borough, he's sure to be there. Ilana arrived slightly later (as promised), so we quickly inducted her, based (roughly) on what we'd already heard.

Karim sneaked in while we weren't looking, and kept making the mistake of asking John for advice. Oliver carried several heavy boxes at a time, as if they were cow parsley at Tower Hamlets cemetery.

Having wandered round Bethnal Green in ever deceasing circles trying to find us, Sree did an amazing job in deciding what to do with a whole crate of "Amazon" ketchup, presumably unsold from one of that company's shops which always lack any customers.

Within a short space of time, everything was neatly sorted and crated. leaving us time to go out and enjoy the sunshine while it lasted.

Mulch obliged

Tower Hamlets Report written by Laura Williams

A breezy but bright Monday evening saw 12 GoodGymers head to Columbia Road to help the Columbia TRA with some weeding and mulch distribution.

Following a short workout in Ravenscroft Park (where we welcomed Connie to her first GoodGym Tower Hamlets task) we made our way around the corner to the gardens of Sivill House where Ed, Ed, Liz and Dougal were well preparing the equipment for this evening’s activity.

After a short briefing, we were promptly dispatched into three teams (one distributing mulch; one weeding in the garden by the street, and another weeding in the orchard area).

Shuttling barrows of mulch around the gardens, plucking pesky grass and unwanted dock leaves, the time sped by.

At shortly before 8, we decided to call it a night, emptying the last weed onto the compost pile and the last wheelbarrow of mulch onto the young trees.

A good night’s work, and great to be reunited with the fun Columbia TRA team.

Next week, our Monday night activity’s moved to Wednesday, due to the Bank Holiday, when we’ll be joining Margaret and Ash for another fun evening in-and-around the Hollybush Estate.

Until then.
