Another great social run in the books!
This time we met up at the William Morris Gallery in Lloyd park for a quick run to distract from studying and tax returns. Sarah took us on a nice flat route that eventually led us to a playground. Of course we couldn't resist a quick jump on the trampoline and a go on the seesaw (would be rude not to really). All played out, we carried on back towards the park and went our separate ways.
If you're keen to get involved in a mid-week or weekend social run but are short on time, please shoot me an email and I can try to schedule something that works for everyone!

A lovely little trot around Lloyd park and a chance to meet the Waltham Forest GoodGymers!
Despite the drizzle and very (very) slippery paths, we all managed to stay on our feet and get to know each other a little better.
After completing a very cautious loop, we settled down in the park coffee shop for some hot drinks and some excellent conversation. Thanks again Claire for the cappuccino, the next one is on me!
I got some great feedback about what members are hoping to see from GoodGym in the near future and I'm hoping to implement as much as possible ASAP. Please feel free to send in any thoughts or feedback you have and I hope to see more of you soon!

Two determined Goodgymmers (Ruby and Sarah) met the lovely Penny, Miranda and Sara from Church Hill Road Community Gardeners, Walthamstow, and successfully wrestled a very stubborn giant New Zealand Flax Plant (Phormium) into submission! The "monster plant" had gone somewhat rampant in the Shernall Road corner of the community garden, and on the advice of the RHS, needed to be removed from the rockery. Ruby, Sara and Sarah dug, chopped and heaved until the giant phormium was successfully uprooted! Vanquishing the monster was hugely satisfying, and Penny seemed both thrilled and relieved that it had been safely removed to make space for a greater variety of loveliness in that little spot of the rockery. Goodgym/Church Hill Road Gardeners 1: Phormium 0!

This will help us to keep our community gardens looking as they should. The gardens are enjoyed by our whole community and make the road a lovely one to walk down.Read more

Sarah Whitehouse done a 6 month mission streak.
Sarah just completed a six month streak of doing missions. That’s so many bags of garden rubbish cleared and jobs done to help someone out and put a smile on their face. Give Sarah a cheer to encourage them to keep up the good work.

Six chips off the old Goodgym block (Charlotte, Kat, Kathryn, Matt, Nerys and Sarah) braved the weather to lay some woodchip path in the churchyard at Saint Mary's, Walthamstow. Despite all six being headtorchless, the team energy was strong and the spirits were high as we shovelled and moved barrowloads of woodchip on a cold, dark, soggy night! Many hands definitely made swift work and the job was done in no time at all. Very well done to all who turned out on such a wild and woolly evening, and a particularly big Goodgym welcome to Kathryn, who joined us for the first time!
