Holey Moley What a Hot Run!

Wed 22 Jun
Report written by David Mansfield

This week five runners made their way, through the heat and humidity, to Leagrave Park, where as part of the upcoming weekend festivities nine rowan trees will be planted for the community to enjoy.

Our task was to cut the holes in the turf and give the spots a good watering, ready for the weekend. We also helped move a lot of kit for the festival.

Once done there we went for a quick lap of the park with a core-blasting workout thrown in to help get those cores toned up, and a few hamstring stretching moves as well, before heading home in slightly cooler air.

The plots we dug previously are now growing onions, carrots and potatoes so we'll be able to see how they're getting on.

This week a local school is coming to build some raised beds and we'll come along afterwards to fill them with topsoil so they can be planted up with more veg 🥦

This week we're back at the Roots to Recovery garden where the plots we've been looking after are now growing vegetables!

We'll be tackling some jobs around the allotment to make sure the crop is a bumper one this year!

A nice short run from town should leave us some time for a fitness session on the way back!

Roger that. Over.

Sun 19 Jun
Report written by Martin R

4 Luton Goodgymers supported Race for Life Luton, cheering and encouraging runners as part of our marshalling duties and helping to pack away the race equipment. All rather excited that we were given walkie talkies. Awesome that we also got to cheer on 2 of our own who both completed the 10k race. The event raised £40000 for cancer research uk and a good time was had by all. Over and out.

We've done a few visits to Leagrave Park and it's really looking smart these days and deserving of its green flag status!

We'll be doing a thorough search for any rubbish that was missed last time, and any new litter thats been left by park visitors, keeping the fields and the river clean and tidy.

Rake It Till You Make It

Wed 15 Jun
Report written by David Mansfield

This week a long, hot hayfevery run brought us to the Trinity Community Centre where Training4UServices are looking to get their overgrown garden space back into use.

We had a little workout trying to get the mower started but it roared to life eventually. We cleared the area of the random rubble and rubbish hidden among the long grass, mowed down the grass, pulled weeds from the gravel and used the big humps in the lawn to fill in the big holes.

The space was left looking pretty tidy and welcoming once we were done, though one rake was killed in action, as Ruth vigorously achieved her 10th good deed! 🎉
