Helping at Hull Road Park

Mon 13 Dec 18:15 pm
York CVS, Denham Room, 15 Priory Street , York , YO1 6ET
Making the park more pleasant for everyone

Welcome to GoodGym York!

We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. Every Monday we meet to get active and do a physical task to help the charities or community organisations in our city.

WHERE WE MEET

We meet at the Priory Street Centre and our usual room is the Denham Room. As you approach the front of the Centre, turn right and go to the car park area. The room we use is locked whilst we're out so you can leave your bits and bobs in there. We will have a person at the door managing one in, one out system while dropping the bags etc. There is no requirement to wear a face mask when entering the building, as you will be there by yourself and only for a short period of time, but you can wear one if you feel more comfortable that way. 10 bay pay and display car park is available behind the nursery block, to the left as you approach front of the Centre. In addition on street parking is available on Priory Street.

THE TASK

There'll be compost areas to sort and a dead hedge to build - what more could you want from a Monday evening in December?! Please bring your gardening gloves and a headtorch to #RunBrightatNight.

RUNNING AND WALKING WITH US

GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and if the task is close enough we have a walking group too. It's possible to walk to this task (2km each way). Walkers will leave at 18:25 promptly so please arrive in plenty of time.

We always have a back-marker too so nobody will get left behind - no matter what your pace is.

POST-RUN SOCIAL

We will head to The Ackhorne Pub on St Martin's Lane after our run for a spot of liquid refreshment and a good chat. Please join us!

Ready for spring planting

Tue 20 Apr
Report written by Michal Czekajlo

Dom and Darren mounted their bikes to deliver spring planting materials to adult carers in Woodthorpe, Southbank and Bishopthorpe in time for a themed Zoom session.

The project is aimed at helping carers to maintain their own wellbeing by providing a session on seed planting and an activity which they can do either on their own for a break form their caring, or with the person they care for. Carers have found the pandemic incredibly stressful and these sessions are a way of providing some connection with one another whilst enabling those who are anxious or unable to go out and meet in person.

Plants delivery for York Carers Centre

Tue 20 Apr 17:00 pm
Chaloners Road, Dringhouses, York, YO24 2TH
Enable adult carers to take part in activities from their home

York Carers Centre have asked us to help with delivery of some materials to their carers in preparation for the spring planting session via Zoom.

The event is aimed at helping carers to maintain their own wellbeing by providing a session on seed planting and an activity which they can do either on their own for a break form their caring, or with the person they care for. Carers have found the pandemic incredibly stressful and these sessions are a way of providing some connection with one another whilst enabling those to attend who are anxious or unable to go out and meet in person.

There are three kits to be delivered to addresses in Bishopthorpe, Woodthorpe and Southbank (exact addresses will be written on the envelopes). Each kit consists of an A5 envelope and a 4 inch tall plant pot (front photo for reference).

The kits are ready for collection from an address in Dringhouses on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th April. The exact address will be emailed/texted to you.

We are asked to deliver them by 6pm on Tuesday 20th April, in time for the evening session that day.
