Removing a Raised Bed

Tue 24 May 18:30 pm
Lockwood Park Health & Fitness Club, Brewery Drive, Huddersfield, HD4 6EN
Making a wild flower meadow for Netherton Infant School

We’ve built raised beds for Growing works before, well now we are going to remove one!

The folks at Netherton Infant School have decided they want their raised beds, built from old railway sleepers, shifting in order to make way for a wild flower meadow. We’ll need plenty of muscle for lifting and shifting, and don’t forget to bring your gloves.

The run is from the Lockwood Park Health & Fitness Club, meeting at 6:30pm outside the main entrance. The run is 3K each way, including some off-road sections and a couple of steep gradients.

Please note the change of start venue for this run

Making the Bed

Sat 21 May
Report written by Saul Muldoon

We made a bed yesterday, that's a flower bed on Cowciffe Recreation Ground. The people of Cowcliffe were keen to convert a patch of overgrown land into something mote attractive ahead of their Platinum Jubilee fare and GoodGym were only too happy to help out.

With picks, spades, forks and mattocks to hand GoodGymmers Kati Law, Ben Godfrey, David Bilton and myself spent a very enjoyable morning making the bed.

Delivering Leaflets for Berry Brow Carnival 2

Tue 10 May 18:30 pm
Lockwood Park Health & Fitness Club, Brewery Drive, Huddersfield, HD4 6EN
Promoting this important community event in the local area

Part 2 of our leaflet blitz promoting the famous Berry Brow Carnival.

The annual Berry Brow Carnival is taking place in June and GoodGym are going to help promote it by blitzing the local area with leaflets. This one is going to involve a lot of legwork, we'll meet at Lockwood Park KAL Health & Fitness Club before running the 2K to Berry Brow. Then it is on with getting as many leaflets through local letterboxes as we can in the time available.

Don't forget that for this one we're meeting at Lockwood Park and not the Stadium!

Oaky Dokey

Sat 30 Apr
Report written by Saul Muldoon

It was mattocks, spades and sledgehammers out this morning at Oakwell Hall Country Park as GoodGym Huddersfield got busy impriving a section of pathway.

Under the watchful eyes of Rangers Amanda and Scott, we dug out the old edging boards, installed new ones and finally resurfaced the path with gravel.

Another excellent job for the GoodGym crew, thanks to Kati Law, Ben Godfrey, Tom Elcock and GoodGym first timer Diane McKay.

Having a Ball at Oakwell Hall!

Sat 30 Apr 10:00 am
Oakwell Hall Country Park, Nutter Lane, Birstall, WF17 9LG
Keeping this country park looking lovely

Amanda the ranger from Oakwell Hall Country Park has commissioned GoodGym Huddersfield to help out there on the morning of Saturday 30th April. We'll discover exactly what we'll be working on nearer the time, but we're guaranteed to do some proper good and have a ball at the same time! What we do know is that you can expect a couple of hours of hard labour in the outdoors helping to keep the country park looking good and accessible for the hundreds of walkers, runners, equestrians and cyclists who use the facility on a daily basis.

Oakwell Hall is of course home to a Parkrun too, so why not come along early and get your daily run in prior to us starting the task at 10am? You'll not find a better way to spend a Saturday morning!
