It faired us well

Greenwich Report written by Rachel Henry

Five of us joined the Friends of Hornfair Park on Sunday to help out with the parks first PARKSfest. And a good turn out it was, with great community spirit and no incidents that we were aware of other than the toilets running out of soar which Sarah quickly solved with a trip to Co-op! Let's hope it was the first of many fairs in this park. Bring on some beer at the next one :)

Nice one team!

Hedging our bets

Greenwich Report written by Rachel Henry

What a beautiful evening spent in a beautiful garden!

After sharing which were our favourite packed lunches (and inspiring the idea of sprucing up our June social with some champagne), we did a quick warm up and jogged by the river back to the Christchurch Community Garden to be met by the lovely Patrick and Fiona. The garden is looking fantastic ahead of the Open Gardens this week (no wonder it's on the front of the leaflet!) Some of us got to work trimming the hedge out front and others spreading some gravel in the old bee enclosure and bringing a bench in. And those of us who hadn't been before enjoyed exploring the gorgeous garden and forest school.

A lovely evening topped off with a pint at the Yacht!

We'll be back here to cut back the hedge more at the end of July. Remember the Open Gardens this weekend. Sign up here for the GoodGym team for the Pub quiz next Thursday organised by Sarah to raise money for the Maryon Park community garden!

Next Wednesday we're down at the Charlton Station Community Garden thanks to Julian!

Saturday is Hervey Road and Sunday is [Parkfest at Hornfair Park].(https://www.goodgym.org/v3/sessions/hornfair-parksfest)

Until next time!

For he's a jolly GoodGym fellow!

Greenwich Report written by Rachel Henry

Tonight's GoodGym Greenwich session was in celebration of one of our all time heroes, Julian who has achieved the much coveted goal of completing 500 good deeds! That's 500 tasks, most of which have involve a decent run there and back...let's do the calculations on how many km that is, bear with me - maths isn't my strong suit. (say 3km is the average run and then there and back that's 6km each session so that's 6x500 and yes I'm doing that on my calculator in case I put too many zeroes on, we don't want an over inflated ego do we - so that's 3000km thereabouts!) 3000km all in the name of doing good. Now that ain't bad.

Anyone who has had the pleasure of doing a task with Julian will know he puts everything in to whatever he does. He'll be the first up the ladder, the one pulling up the most brambles and he'll lead the run the odd times we don't have a run leader. He's way up that ladder in the GoodGym greats with his commitment to what we do and he's an inspiration to all of us. Julian once said if he were a plant he'd be holly - prickly - but in fact he's one of the kindest and generous people and we're privileged to have him on our ranks.

I should stop there, that's probably faaar too much for a humble guy. Talking about GoodGym greats though, I didn't think it possible to think more highly of Sarah but she outdid herself last night when she produced a safety pin from her bag when I was saying I needed another pin for the fetching sash we furnished Julian with for his special night. She explained she carries one around just in case (you never know when you might need a safety pin!) Absolute legend. Reminds me of my nanna who used to carry her lippy around with her (you never know who you might meet) she'd say in her thick Brummie accent as she applied it liberally at opportune (and sometimes inopportune) moments on our days out.

After a warm up involving gloves and water bottles to fill in for Arthur's ball pit balls - and a rather competitive rivalry between the married couple in the group (caught on camera with those lovely squats to get that much closer to the gloves) - we ran up the what always feels to me like a very long Burrage road to the Glyndon Community Centre. Andy got us set up with clearing the back garden and weeding round the front. On our way round, Kerry and I spotted what I thought was a hedge covered in cobwebs you get for halloween...but then I remembered it's May. Brin later told me it's tent caterpillars. Just the thought of that was gross but I just made the mistake of googling them and now I'm going to itch all night.

You know you want to google them too. Go on, just do it.

I feel like they're on me, are they ON ME??!

Okay, it's going to be okay, just keep reading and I'll take your mind off those hairy little...oh my God, did you see this one? Deep breaths everyone, go to your happy place. There are no caterpillars in the happy place.

We ended our evening in a happy place, with a couple of drinks at Salt and friends Darryl, John, Sarah and Laura joining us to celebrate.

I'll leave you with Julian's words about one of the many joys of GoodGym.

"Join GoodGym because you discover all sorts of lovely places you wouldn't even know exist"

We're at Christchurch Community garden next week - hope to see you there.

Until next time!

Digging in the sun

Greenwich Report written by Rachel Henry

What a beautiful Saturday to spend at the Hervey Road Sports Field helping Annie in the little slice of paradise she has cultivated over the last couple of years. Some of the group fresh from their Parkrun travails, we met and quickly got stuck in with Annie, who is down here twice a week working hard. Special welcome to Ese and Lara who attended their first GoodGym session today - lovely to meet you both and kudos to you for turning out in this heat!

The team dug out tons of thistles and brambles, filling up several big bags over the course of the morning - time well spent doing some good!

We're helping at Glyndon on Wednesday night - come and join us to celebrate Julian's 500th good deed if you're free! We're back at Hervey Road next Saturday

Until next time :)
