A trashy night out!

Mon 15 Nov
Report written by Tom Mutton

When you want to feel the burn, there is litter-ally one place to go in Sheffield...

'We love Burngreave'

This was our shout at our group photo on last nights run as we headed out to meet MARVELOUS MALCOM at the 'knotty sculpture' in the Burngreave area.

Malcom gave us a brief brief of the evenings task which was to try and gather as much litter from the surrounding streets as possible before it gets blown down the hill into the river Don and makes it's way to Doncaster!

We got straight to it, working in teams of min 2 with bags and pickers in hand, receiving thanks from local residents as we went on. We even got offered drinks from a local shop!

Once we were done the streets were looking a lot clearer and the local community seemed very thankful and appreciative with even talk of a local Mosque starting their own litter picking group!

The final photo speaks for itself, showing how much impact many hands can make in such a small space of time!

Until next time, happy running :)

Bag it up, bag it in, let me begin...

Mon 8 Nov
Report written by Tom Mutton

HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Task Force member and all round legend James who was on his 300th good deed! Please give him a massive load of cheers!

After the now customary cloaking ceremony and photo we headed through the warmth of Sheffield train station and up the Steel city steps on route to meet Helen from Norfolk Park Walled Gardens at the top of the park where she gave us a brief of the project, it's links to Heeley City Farm and the task for the eve.

The nights task involved us bagging up as many tonne bags of dried leaves as possible which are going to be stored long term to compost down into material for high quality peat free organic compost to be used in the garden in the future.

We got straight to it, grabbing bags, leaves and rakes and before we knew it we had bagged up 10 big bags of the lovely rustlers!

Once we had brought all the bags back into the walled garden and said our thanks and goodbyes to Helen we headed back down the Steel City Steps and used the Ampitheatre as our fitness playground to get three good rounds of step ups in with three difficulty options:

  1. Regular step up on your choice of step height
  2. Regular step up plus a squat down
  3. Box Jumps on the steps

After three rounds the legs were feeling it and we headed back through the station and back to the Showroom for some food and drinks to finish the evening off.

Until next time, happy running! :)

Norfolk Park Walled Garden - Lots of Leaves: Raking bagging, dragging & stacking

Mon 8 Nov 18:30 pm
Showroom Cinema , 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield, S1 2BX
Helping to create leaf mould to improve the soil on site

We will be collecting leaves on site to make leafmould. Fallen leaves in the vicinity of the walled garden need to be raked up and collected into bags then taken to the garden (very close by) & stacked onto an overgrown area ready to be stored for 1 to 3 years to make leafmould which is used to make a seed sowing or potting mix for seedlings & plants.

The impact of our leaf collection will be the provision of a valuable resource for Heeley City Farm's food growing activities. Leaf mould as a growing medium replaces bought in growing media which are costly & not always good quality. The impact will be a saving of funds but also better quality plants which leads to better quality produce for people eat. Furthermore plenty of learning will come from the process of making leafmould into growing media. The bags of leaves are to be stacked over an overgrown area so will also help to suppress weeds which will then allow the area to be turned into a more productive space in 1 to 3 years time.

Please bring your own gloves and headtorch and if you have a GG floodlight, please charge and bring with you. Thanks.
