Funny-ture saver

Sun 23 Jan
Report written by Max

6 gg runners helped the British Heart Foundation Hillsborough to leaflet and let people know how to deal with their old furniture, this can also help the British Heart Foundation to rise money. Some of us just finished volunteering at Hillsborough Junior Parkrun. After the leafleting, we had lunch together in a local restaurant.

Sustrans Saturday Session

Sat 22 Jan
Report written by Michelle

Goodgymers arrived from all corners for a sunny morning with Sustrans, picking up litter, cutting back vegetation and stopping the creep of soil taking over the path.

Sustrans is a charity working to promote active travel which includes cycling and walking, and more sustainable travel options. They look after the network of paths that provide safer and more pleasant cycling, horseriding and walking routes.

Super Simon who is in charge of coordinating the volunteer rangers arrived with his van full of tools and equipment. Other volunteers from Sustrans and from Sheffield Litter Pickers joined us too.

Linda, Max and Kim (a local to this area) had already completed a mission at Graves Park before coming along for some Sustrans action. Linda has the joy of the complexity of cycle paths to Meadowhall having found a route along the canal.

James had 'technical issues' so didn't make it but was there in spirit. I think it was a puncture to fix on his bike without a repair kit but other technical issues may have popped up last thing. Without James slowing her down (!) Michelle took the super highway to Meadowhall along Attercliffe Road which is a direct, speedy way, if a little busy. The ice on the Five Weirs Way first thing was also a little disconcerting. Yvonne arrived on her bike having enjoyed the Five Weirs Walk and navigated her way to the meeting point of the task which is a challenge with Meadowhell getting in the way of any nice bike ride.

Celine rocked up after some well integrated public transport involving the bus and tram that linked up like a dream. A day ticket with all bus companies and the tram across Sheffield is a Saturday morning treat. (About £5)

We soon got to work and found that the cycle route has some benches where people love to stop and really get in some good solid drinking. The cans are perfectly disguised in the undergrowth so you really can enjoy the peaceful ambience and a can (or 5). It gave us lots to do.

The sun was shining and lots of cyclists thanked us for our work.

After a couple of hours we all found our various routes home with the Five Weirs Way being used by the cyclists.

Cafes, swimming, lunch and coffee were enjoyed afterwards which is needed to sustain the Sheffield GG weekend of community missions. A few people are doing all four. Well done gang!

Thanks everyone who came :)

Keeping the Chapeltown Greenway spic and span.

Sat 22 Jan 11:00 am
Meadowhall Interchange Park and Ride, Sheffield, S9 1JQ
Creating a better environment for Active Travel

Clearing work on the Chapeltown Greenway. Some litterpicking but mostly vegetation management.

We'll be arranging a run and a cycle ride to get there depending on who signs up, nearer the time. Details below. It'll follow the Five Weirs Way. Just under 10km.

We'll be encouraging active travel but there are buses, trains and trams to Meadowhall to avoid driving if possible (car share ok).

Options:

Run

Meet Sheffield train station at 9.45am to run there. Train back.

Cycle

Meet Sheffield train station at 10.15am to cycle there. Train back with bikes or cycle back.

Train

10.45am. Takes 5 minutes. And regular trains after that if you're a bit later.

Or make own way and meet at 11am.

There is a GG mission at Graves Park Run that morning so just about possible with the correct selection of role at Graves :)

If you go down to the Wood(seats) today...

Wed 19 Jan
Report written by Rachel

Having had my attention drawn to a nearby grot spot in Woodseats by a member of Sheffield Litter Pickers, I gathered a bunch of Goodgymmers for a lunchtime pick in the winter sunshine. Welcome in particular to new member Becky for her first in person mission on her travels from Nottingham.

We filled several bags in about 45 minutes, whilst Michelle did a bit of community engagement talking to someone whose fence backed onto a particularly bad area of flytipping. She also enthusiastically attempted to repair an area of broken fence to deter further tipping. All in all, lots achieved in a short time, plus fresh air and exercise, and a cheeky lunch out nearby in good company!
