We will be meeting our good mate Rob the Parky to help him prep the park for the upcoming Handlebards performances that have not been able to be held in the park for over 2 years!
We will be helping to prep for the play with general tidying, gardening, woodchipping etc.
Please do bring your own gardening gloves.
ABOUT THE PLAY:
On the 17th Aug Heeley People's Park will be hosting 'The Scottish Play'.
The performance is a Pay What You Can performance, un-ticketed with admission on a first-come first-served basis. Donations will be accepted on the evening of the show.
Join The HandleBards all-female troupe at Heeley People’s Park for a bicycle-powered, farcical production of Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’. Forget the tears and tragedy – this is a frantic, delirious, full-of-beans show like you’ve never seen before. This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather! Notes on Performance Doors open at 6pm, so bring a picnic and come and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Chairs, picnics, blankets and any other low level accessories are welcome. In case of rain, please don’t bring umbrellas as they block sight-lines for other audience members. Ponchos and raincoats are just as fetching, so please wear these instead.
The Goodgym team of 18 (and we're not even sure who the 18 are!) have been running/cycling/walking around Sheffield to collect points at checkpoints morning, noon and night for a gruelling 6 weeks. On average points GG has done very well (top of the league for most, if not all of it) - but it's not over until 7pm on Wed 28th, so let's see how we go until then.
We're meeting at 7pm in Endcliffe park for a bit of a picnic to celebrate that it's finally the end. People were taking part for various reasons so we are congratulating everyone's achievements.
We'll have a wet weather plan but not sure what that will be as we're all trying to avoid being pinged (Tramlines was biggest festival in Europe since pandemic started!). Message the GG What's App or message here and someone will let you know.
No need to register, just drop by.
Ash is extraordinary; they've received 1000 cheers. That's some serious noise and some serious support. Ash is an apostle.
The streets were looking messy, but none of us acted a jessy.
We headed into the sun from The Showroom, The streets were messy in need of a long broom!
The beat boxes we found, the litter we picked from the ground.
Pickers and bags we did hold, Onlookers did look and behold.
The bags filled up high, As the light faded in the sky.
To the Showroom we returned to stretch, And beers and food we went to fetch.
Until next week,
This week we will be following a lovely section of the River Don, taking in a number of Beat The Street Beat Boxes along the route.
We will be meeting outside the Showroom Cinema and running via a couple of Beat Boxes prior to heading over to Park Hill to collect litter pickers and bags before jumping onto our lovely flat canal route.
If you do have litter pickers, bags and gloves, please do bring with you.

Having previously been to Mr and Mrs A a few weeks ago and unable to complete the task required (https://www.goodgym.org/reports/gardening-for-mr-a), I was keen to come back with reinforcements to rip down their dilapidated old shed. We later found out it's been there nearly as long as they have in this house - about 60 years!
Falling apart though it was, it was still good hard work to get down. Sides and supports removed, we toppled it over. The hardest part was removing the still firmly attached roof felting, that Mr A had done a great job on so many years ago.
Eventually it was done and we transferred everything onto the drive to be removed. Mr and Mrs A were ever so grateful and kept commenting what a smashing job we'd done.
