Every Monday I’m shovellin’

Lewisham Report written by Kim Parker

We had lots of tasks to tackle at the PNK Garden this week, it was our first visit of 2024! It's a long run to PNK Garden but the team handled it in their stride.

The tasks for this evening were: - Weeding - there's always lots of peaky weeds to tackle at the garden. - Litter picking - same as above, lots of litter blows in from the main road. - Moving soil - I have to admit I have no idea what was going on here except the soil was going from one end of the garden to the other in wheelbarrows.

And when we left there was a HUGE rock being removed from one of the containers.

Thanks team for walking the last 1km with me when I wasn't feeling well! Also the reason behind the delay of the run report but all should be back to normal for Seniors on Monday.

Having an art to art on Valentine's Day

Southwark Report written by Sam Lefevre (he/him)

Love was in the air! ❤️

10 love-sick (not really) GoodGymers opted for on a date night with GoodGym.

8 out of 10 cats...GoodGymers were up for the just under 3k group run to Salvation Army Camberwell Corps and met Sam at Old Spike. As runners came in, we caught up on our week and the festivities of Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day) and Valentine's Day, the former social date was a more preferred topic. As 18:45 arrived, Sam promptly went through his usual GG intro speech and his ice-breaker snap-poll for the night was to do with, of course, Valentine's Day. Would you prefer to receive a dinner, gift or flowers? Everyone voted for dinner... Sam even prepared an ice-breaker question: Awkward / unusual first date question or scenario?

We had from consoling a Prince fan upon hearing he had died to the date assuming our GoodGymer took drugs in the bathroom (she just had a runny nose...) and from headbutting, the date leaving half through a date to spirit animals not matching....there's been a few awkward dates amongst us.


You colour my world

After a quick warm-up in the alleyway, Sam led the group through the backstreets of Peckham and up Chadwick Road (the hill) and down towards Camberwell. We were quite pacey this time with Paulin backmarking (both ways). At the task, we met Valentina, Richard and their son, Lucas as well as newbie, Diana and arriving as we just arrived, Sander.

Richard and Valentina had prepared loads of paint, paint brushes and liners to put down to protect the carpeted floor. Yet, before we got going with the painting, our runners got a deserved drink of water, biscuits and heart-shaped Haribos sweets.

Since there were 10 of us and plenty of painting to be done, everyone picked up a paint brush, stirred the paint and concentrated on their section of the entrance hall. Diana and Joely concentrated on painting the main door from inside as it had received a lot of marks over the years. Isaac and Paulin had their fair share of paint on them as they took on the ceiling and high wall roller paint brushes. David, Fi, Laura, Sander, and Steve had smaller brushes to paint the finer parts of the walls.

In 45 minutes, with romantic tunes blasting, we managed to complete the first coat of paint. It was such a therapeutic task and we will be happy to come back in two weeks' time to put on a second coat. But next time, we will ensure we have plenty of time at the end to clean the paint brushes as we left that to the last minute and I feel guilty for leaving it all for Valentina to do!


Thank You to all the GG-ers

A personal thanks from me to all those who came out last night on Valentine's Day! Appreciate the love and the faster than usual pace on the run there and back! It was lovely to meet you Diana and thanks for coming back for your second GoodGym session, Joely. Finally, a massive thank you to Paulin for backmarking on both runs. We're off to Thorlands Gardens next Wednesday to continue with the garden project there!

Stacking and packing pallets of food

Tower Hamlets Report written by Sander Heinsalu

The Felix Project is a large and efficient organisation for distributing pallets of food to charities. I worked at their warehouse in Poplar - they have others. After signing in on a tablet and getting my high-visibility jacket and steel-toe boots, I was shown the lunch room, the warehouse and chilled rooms. David and Julia led by example and showed me how to find the boxes of various foods on the packing list, put these on trolleys, wheel these to the pallet, stack and shrink wrap the pallet, and check off the items on the packing list. We put a piece of cardboard with the name of the charity under the shrink wrap so each pallet could be identified. The walking and lifting was a low-intensity two-hour workout. Small efficiency improvements are possible: - Some traffic and parking rules for the pallet trucks and trolleys. - Printing the names of charities on paper and adding these to the pallets may be easier to read than marker on cardboard. - Eliminating decimals on the packing list, unless the number of boxes is sometimes fractional, not integer.

Loads of food

Lambeth Report written by Sander Heinsalu

Dozens of volunteers helped fill the food boxes of the visitors who paid 4 pounds and could select 12 categories of food or clothing - a fairly large quantity of each. It was well organized and orderly. It took about two hours. I got to practice Spanish listening, which was interesting and educational - everyone other than me seemed to be a native Spanish speaker. Later we folded the tables, stacked the chairs and pallets, swept and mopped the room, stacked the leftover food boxes in ceiling high stacks in several storage rooms, carried the spoiled food to the bin, etc, which took about an hour.

Want to see something bunny?

Southwark Report written by Southwark runner

Today, 6 goodgymmers (and a boyfriend!) came to Surrey Docks farm to help out. We started in the goat pen, sweeping up the poo. And then we chopped down some christmas trees and tidied up the logs near the pizza oven. We finished early, but not before feeding the goats and holding some bunnies. What a treat, and what a beautiful day for it! ☀️
