Sofa So Good

Thu 27 Jan
Report written by David Mansfield

Mr R needed a couple of sofas moved to make space for a bed downstairs so he can move back into his own home. Rebecca and David arrived to solve the problem.

The first sofa was a breeze and went straight out. The second sofa decided to be more difficult and took much head scratching and three attempts to squeeze in around two narrow corners. Certainly was a mental as well as physical challenge!

With the sofas finally moved, the biggest hurdle to Mr R getting back into his come was cleared. Sofas Sofm

The Thin End of the Hedge

Wed 26 Jan
Report written by David Mansfield

GoodGym Luton continues to grow and for the first time in a long time we got eight runners out on our Group Run.

We visited a hedgerow next to Barnfield College and the river which is scheduled for some attention in the coming season. Under the direction of Ecologist Trevor from the council and with the help of Kevin and Phyl from ABCD we set to work.

We trimmed and tidied up the hawthorn hedge, clearing the way for some hedge-laying in the future. We cleared the grass and weeds from a couple of gaps so that we can come back in a few weeks and plant in some new trees to fill the gaps in the thin end of the hedge.

We brought down an unwanted elder tree trying to grow right on top of a big old mature hawthorn tree.

We even collected three bags of litter from the area in the process!

Great to get some interest and encouragement from passers by too!

Report written by David Mansfield

Three runners came on a chilly morning to help Trees4Luton and Bramingham Primary School tend to their baby forest of young trees. Weeds were pulled and wood chip applied to make sure these trees continue to grow well into the new season.

An Evening of Shear Joy

Wed 19 Jan
Report written by David Mansfield

A fab five Goodgymmers assembled and warmed up before heading off to our task at a woodland footpath.

The brambles and bushes along this footpath needed cutting back to make the path accessible again so we set to work with shears and loppers to open up the space and make it a welcoming path down to the riverside footpath.

50 metres in we connected with the riverside footpath and our task was complete, so we thanked Peter and William from Penrose Roots for lending their time and tools to this task and headed back into town via a quick core workout in the park.
