Yes, that was a Sheffield based Pulp pun..

On a beautiful Sheffield evening we were back off to meet MARVELOUS MARIA from Common Ground Community Garden to help with a bit of a spring clean. This time around we took on the below tasks:

  • Litter picking
  • Painting planters a beautiful sky blue
  • Clearing out a basement
  • Clearing out a store cupboard
  • Filling a skip

Maria was very thankful for the help which will make the spaces a lot easier to use and make storage for other equipment to be used by the surrounding community. The beds looked ace!

On completion of our tasks we used this amazing area for some paired fitness where one person would take on an exercise whilst their partner did 2 laps of the 'Stonehenge Circle' before tagging their partner to swap over. This weeks exercises included:

  • Planks (the exercise, not the people)
  • Press Ups
  • Squat Jumps

Until next time, happy running :)
