Yes, that was a Sheffield based Pulp pun..
On a beautiful Sheffield evening we were back off to meet MARVELOUS MARIA from Common Ground Community Garden to help with a bit of a spring clean. This time around we took on the below tasks:
- Litter picking
- Painting planters a beautiful sky blue
- Clearing out a basement
- Clearing out a store cupboard
- Filling a skip
Maria was very thankful for the help which will make the spaces a lot easier to use and make storage for other equipment to be used by the surrounding community. The beds looked ace!
On completion of our tasks we used this amazing area for some paired fitness where one person would take on an exercise whilst their partner did 2 laps of the 'Stonehenge Circle' before tagging their partner to swap over. This weeks exercises included:
- Planks (the exercise, not the people)
- Press Ups
- Squat Jumps
Until next time, happy running :)
It's time for a spring tidy at the Community Garden to help make the space really welcoming to local families all summer.
We'll be meeting MARVELOUS MARIA on site to talk us through the tasks.
We'll be helping with: - Litter picking - Painting raised beds - Weeding and garden maintenance
Please do bring your own gloves with you so we can get gloved up on arrival and get stuck straight in!
Address of task: Machon bank Netheredge Sheffield S7 1GR
Curious? Elena has just run their first session in another area. For that explorative spirit Elena is awarded the scout badge. A Scout is trustworthy
We welcomed some traveling GG members from Leicester in the form of Zachary who was one his first run and Elena. You are both welcome back anytime and hope you enjoyed it!
This week we were back to help out our good pal PARKY ROB who is always so appreciative of the work we do. Unfortunately he had some bad news for us, letting us know that some of the trees in the park were to be chopped down due to Ash die back. Sad times, but necessary to keep the park users safe.
Out task for this week was to cut back three beds that were getting a bit keen with the better weather and encroaching onto the pavement and park a bit too much, so we got straight to it giving them a good haircut.
James proved too strong for the secateurs which were fortunately the only casualty on the night.
Well I avoided the cape as long as I could but MARVELOUS MAX wouldn't let me get away with it. With the 200 milestone reminder it was time to done the silky marvel and embrace the magic. We said our goodbyes to Rob and some of the other runners and headed to the U-Mix center for some DOUBLE TROUBLE, working in pairs and each taking on 4 exercises in total, including:
- Box Jumps
- Step Ups
- Leg Lifts
- Chin Ups
Back at base we stretched off and headed in to sample the extensive new menu The Showroom had to offer.
Until next week, happy running :)
