It was a warm one in Sheffield! What better way to get your Monday started than a GoodGym Group Run?

A group of hardy folk made it to the Showroom tonight to go and help out our friends at Sustrans. We regularly help out Sustrans keeping cycle routes clear and safe for everyone. This time we were headed to a section of the Sheaf Valley walk off Queens Road.

Main heads-up is don't get too close to the river bank - it's a long way down! - Simon (Sustrans)

We took a circuitous route to get some distance in and arrived already hot! Simon was fully prepared as usual and we got to work lopping overhanging plants, litterpicking and clearing the way for cyclists and walkers. After a good 45 minutes we'd got together 5 bags of litter and 4 bags of green waste for the council to collect. Alas there were 3 trolleys and a ladder tantalisingly out of reach!

After making a fuss of Simon's very cool new bike trailer (with holes in it for brooms and everything) that was specially made for him, we snapped some photos and made our way to the Peace Gardens. What's at the Peace Gardens you ask? Sally Squats! But there's a reward - splash around in the fountains afterwards. As you can see from the photos, a few of us had a LOT of fun!

****Goodgyming happening this week On Friday evening there's a community mission to clear the area infront of the library at Newfield green. On Saturday there's a community mission to Abbeyfield Park.
