This time we are going to check out the south side of New Earswick.
The task will involve plotting of benches, where they are, what condition they are in and whether they are Age Friendly (had back and arms etc).
You can do it on foot, or bike.
Carl will provide maps, clipboards and pens and all we need is YOU!

Well after some deliberation David and Laura took a map and plotted the benches on bike, David had already done 10k running that day. Debs was on her way and joined Amy and Babs while I jumped on my bike to do the longer stretch of Clifton Ings. We all returned to a bench instead of the pub so we were definitely Goodgym that night. Benches updated and many new ones added, do a great job done.
Woodthorpe York Community Group are always lucky to have a nice weather for their events and today was no different. We arrived towards the end of the summer fair to help with making the area clean and folding some gazebos. An unusual item found during the litterpick nominated for a special mention in the report was a plastic banana toy. Folding of the gazebos side of task taught us about the various security pins and buttons that one has to press or pull for the gazebo to fold. We did not have time for the hook a duck and the like, but stopped at the local Police stall for a team photo wearing various hats, high vis jackets and shields. Stall holders and event organisers were very grateful for our help and we had nice time chatting, so a successful afternoon overall.
