A fantastic, five Goodgym members came together to help the friends of Friary Park. Four of us gathered at the Phoenix Cinema for a chat before setting off on the 5 km run down East Finchley High Street, into Glebelands and then up a steep hill to the park. It was a beautiful warm evening with the Sun starting to set we gathered around the newly restored statue of Queen Victoria. Apparently she had not liked the statue and had banished it and somehow it ended up in a suburban park. We then met up with Nick, who provided litter pickers and bags for us to spend the next half an hour collecting detritus. Joe add also joined us so we were now five! litter picking is a fun, mindful activity very goal orientated and we had several sacks at the end. Well done everyone for helping out and improving the park and encouraging the friends group in its activities. The friends group are looking to become a charity soon so they can start to fund raise and improve the park even further. Three of us ran 5 km back, and feeling the heat, we had some refreshments at the Phoenix.
Well done to Theodore who ran with leggings on! Yesika for running the longest group run distance of 10 km on her second outing! Jyothsna for recovering from injury to join us for the litter pick! Ruslan for being superfit, doing extra running and exercises en route.

What a grape Friday afternoon we've had!
The hot weather was calling for ice cream and so Theodore, Jyothsna and Cloud agreed to meat at Creams in North Finchley to get one the way to the Food Hub. We've walked 1.7km in 28 degrees but got completely distracted by the yummy ice creams, the good conversation and banter. - Thyme fries when you're having fun!
Today it was Theodore first time at the hub and it was grate to have a new pear of eyes on the job! He has now completed 10 good deeds with GG! Way to go, Theo! Berry well done!
Once we got there, we got stuck in and started sorting out all the crates and boxes: salt, tomato sauce, baked beans, bananas, cabbages, chickpeas ...you name it, we didn't stop lentil it was all oranged!
Jyothsna is now a regular at Hub and amongst her best moves today we butter highlight her chim chim chereee choreopgrahy and skills with the smallest broom you can imagine (see picture!). - She was kiwing us!
We have done our beet to help out and we'll rebeet again next Saturday the 24th of June. - Donut miss out on a grape mission!
loaf & peas GGers!

7 Goodgymers set off on a warm sunny evening running to Highgate woods, to meet up with an 8th Karen. Our task was to hunt for dens to dismantle! Having been instructed by the ranger on a previous session, we knew to look out for wood propped up, which drys it out instead of allowing it to rot down nicely and provide habitat for insects.
We set off, with Niki and Cloud proving to be super spotters! We quickly got to work dismantling, and laying out the wood to provide protective barriers to stop people trampling too far, and we also got to finish a dismantling job from the last session and add to a pathway we'd made. See if you can spot the 'den' before and after shot in the photos. Beattie and Rachel got the prize for carrying the largest branch of the day!
Whilst we were there we also carried out a bit of citizen science using the Cornell bird i.d app, to track what birds were about that evening. In a short space of time we found the Eurasian Blackbird, Eurasian Nuthatch, Eurasian Wren, and the European Robin (who was most interested in our work!). A nice run back in the evening sunlight topped off the session.
