Bromley GoodGym has a future in archaeology

Bromley Report written by Bromley runner

It was lovely to see so many GoodGymers join us for another trip to the Crystal Palace Water Tower ๐Ÿ—ผ this week ๐Ÿ˜

At the Bridge House we introduced ourselves and answered this week's question - "Where would you like to run a marathon?". A wonderfully diverse range of suggestions came up, from the self-indulgent ("Edinburgh, because it's a flat course and I'm lazy" - your report author) to the far away (Tokyo), the safe bets (London and Boston) to the classical (Vienna and Athens).

We then headed out to Crystal Palace Park for some warming up, before splitting off into long distance and shorter distance run groups ๐Ÿƒ. Cat, Clare and James headed round the perimeter of the park with their group, while Hannah and I took advantage of the light to cut through the middle with all its steepness leading our group to get to the Water Tower.

There we met John, impressed with our number, and got to work inside. Having removed much soil and foliage over the last couple of years, we're now into the detailed work of removing stones and small rocks ๐Ÿชจ, as well as carefully uncovering the remaining pipework that sits around the edge of the tower, alongside the last bit of soil removal.

Hannah found the old furnace ๐Ÿ”ฅ and confirmed she'd fit inside (thankfully it's been turned off for a very long time), while James did a sterling job of cutting out the shifting of soil into our makeshift soil sorter (a supermarket trolley) using a shovel by simply lifting the wheelbarrow the soil was in over the trolley. Fast work, if not light!

At 8pm we still had good light, but it was time to say goodbye to John and head back down the west side of the park and back to Bridge House for our cool down stretches.

Great contributions from all - see you next time! ๐Ÿ‘‹

High Flyerers and Poster Boys

Bromley Report written by Mark Gilyead (he/him)

Tonight we were helping out local heroes St Christopherโ€™s Hospice, spreading the word about their Fun Walk fundraiser.

We split into two groups:

โš ๏ธ The Poster Boys headed up to Crystal Palace Triangle (and may well have seen Gary Oldman in action?!)

โœˆ๏ธ Whilst the High Flyerers ran to South Norwood.

Many posters and flyers were distributed to local businesses. Hopefully the Fun Walk is successful and St Christopher's rake in loads of cash for their amazing end of life care!

Top stuff as always, team! โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ”ฅ

Weed, donโ€™t need no vegetation

Bromley Report written by Mark Gilyead (he/him)

11 legends used their Monday night to get in a jog and a good weeding deed for TNG Youth Centre.

We kicked off the evening with names and the place weโ€™d love to wake up in. Some spectacular choices ranging from Patagonia to Japan to Antarctica.

After a quick warm up we headed to Sydenham. This was a DIY session with nothing but us, our gloves and the weeds.

Some nasty brambles were no match for Molly, and Adam cleverly suggested a spot in the bushes across the road for our piles of vegetation ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Once we'd scraped, yanked and whispered (yup) all the weeds out, we headed round the corner to the (apparently) famous 'SNUFFLE' - a wine bar, cafe and dog groomers/spa, "probably for tax reasons", said Emma.

We headed back via a different route. We had a wallsit competition. Cat won! ๐Ÿ†

And finally we did some stretches and a few of us had a beverage. NICE.

Toad-ally Awesome!

Bromley Report written by Mark Gilyead (he/him)

A toad-ally awesome 11 of us met up last night for a jog and some good deeding.

We were joined for the first time by Tim and Adam - welcome! ๐Ÿ™Œ

After a naming and fave biscuit loop, we hit the road. Hannah and Molly took the shorter, direct route, whilst the rest of us opted for the longest hill ever.

We arrived to meet John who was fully prepared with tools.

The water tower base at Crystal Palace Museum is an amazing historic structure and the museum team are keen to clear it out of soil, weeds and rubble so that it can be safely accessed as part of visitorsโ€™ museum experiences.

We focussed on a couple of specific areas, aiming to reach down to the concrete and pipes below.

John found a massive toad, hence the pun! ๐Ÿธ

10+ bucket-loads of soil sieved later, we called it a day and headed back down the hill for some stretches.

Great stuff everyone ๐Ÿฅณ
