Crack Gardeners

Tue 14 Sep
Report written by Kati Law

It was an autumnal evening. The weather wasn’t ‘cracking’, but five GoodGymmers ran 5km along the Greenway to help S2R to make their overgrown cobbled yard safe for users. This involved lots of weeding between the cracks, but in usual GoodGym style we worked quickly and cleared the whole yard in an hour. S2R have invited us back next week to do some painting and planting. Hope to see there!

Yard Clearing, Painting and Planting

Tue 14 Sep 18:30 pm
Stadium Health & Fitness Club, Stadium Way, Huddersfield, HD1 6PG
Keeping S2R looking lovely

We off to our old friends at S2R to help them out once again with clearing up their cobbled yard, to make it tidy and safe for all the users of their centre. They'll be weeding to do, a little bit of painting and perhaps some planters to fill. There's plenty to keep us busy so we'll be doing two consecutive sessions on Tuesdays 14th and 21st of September to get it all done.

As usual we'll be meeting at the Stadium for the group run at 6:30pm, alternatively if you're not able to run there you can meet us at S2R (5-7 Brook Street, Huddersfield, HD1 1EB) at 7pm.

Wish and Chips

Tue 31 Aug
Report written by Saul Muldoon

When Rachel from Growing works wished for a path on their community allotment to be weeded, cleared and covered in woodchips the least GoodGym could do was oblige.

An hour's worth of hard labour from Kati Law, Ben Godfrey, Louise Galvin, David Bilton, Alison Cottam and myself saw the path looking more chipper and Rachel looking very pleased with the fruits of our efforts.

Well done team!

Digging out roots and extreme pruning were on the menu of hard labour for tonights GoodGym.

However a little hard work doesn't phase Alison Cottam and we got well stuck in to our ongoing project of keeping the churchyard at Christ Church looking good.

More Extreme Pruning at Christ Church

Tue 24 Aug 18:30 pm
Kings Bridge Road, Huddersfield, HD1 3AX
Keeping the churchyard tidy

One of our ongoing tasks this summer has been to clear some of the overgrown vegetation in the churchyard at Christ Church Moldgreen. We returning once again to hopefully finish the job. If you are free and you fancy some heavy duty gardening simply sign up.

Following the relaxation in Covid restrictions we are now able to run to this task as a group. However in order to keep GoodGym accessible to those who do not wish or are unable to take part in the group run, there is now an option to meet at the task.

So if you are running we will convene outside the entrance to the Stadium Health & Fitness Club at 6:30pm. Please note we are not currently able to use the changing facilities, so arrive ready to run. If you are meeting us at the task you'll need to be at Christ Church Moldgreen at 7pm. We'll finish the task for 8pm and run back at the Stadium for 8:30pm.

Obviously if you can run please do so, it will be wonderful to have proper GoodGym group runs back again, but if you can't we'll see you at Christ Church.

Please note- Due to a football game taking place at the Stadium the meeting point for this session has now changed. We will meeting for the group run 6:30pm at the King's Bridge Road Car Park, HD1 3AX. Parking is free from 6pm
