Help us get Ship Shape! Tidying a local community centre!

Mon 20 Sep 18:30 pm
Showroom Cinema , 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield, S1 2BX
We are hoping to start using the front beds to do food growing - support with making this area look tidy will not only make this easier, but will also be more aesthetically pleasing for those that use the centre regularly

We will be helping this fantastic community centre with litter picking at the front of the centre, and with tidying the 2 garden beds at the front of the centre as well.

Please bring gloves with you. Thanks

Common Ground Community Garden Clear Up

Mon 23 Aug
Report written by Tom Mutton

So great to start to see some of the old GG faces coming back to group runs and numbers becoming more consistent, long may it continue. We gathered outside The Showroom and headed out to meet MARVELLOUS MARIA at Common Lane Community Garden.

On arrival Maria gave us a marvellous brief on the tasks that needing doing on the Community Garden site and around the Community Centre which included:

  • Weeding all around the centre and some of the beds
  • Repairing the compost heap with new (old) pallets
  • Litter picking around the site

We got straight to it, quickly splitting into groups and getting straight on task.

Becky & Lan got down to earth, weeding a corner bed.

Ash kept a level headed repairing the compost heap with Racheal and Abi.

Once time was upon us and we’d downed tools, we went from pallets to planks with a good three rounds of ‘plank and go’ where we paired up heel to heel in the plank position and took turns in our pairs to do sprint laps around the 9 ladies style stone circle before swapping with our partner.

We had a steady jog back with a small STARVA sprint section at the end for those that fancied a challenge and then stretched off before heading inside for some refreshments from The Showroom.
