Clearing litter from an embankment on the loop line

Sat 5 Feb 11:00 am
Broadway Bridge, Norris Green , Liverpool , L11 1BX
keeping the loop line as a beautiful route through the city

The Liverpool Loop Line was once a a railway line that was abandoned, grew derelict was then redeveloped as part of the national framework of cycle routes. As a flat route surrounded by the line embankments full of trees, bushes, flowers and wildlife, it's a perfect route through the city for cyclists, walkers and runners!

A team of volunteers work really hard all year round to keep the route in beautiful condition but they need a little help with clearing away some litter from the sloped sides which some of their team find difficult to navigate at Broadway Bridge.

They will provide all the bags we need, but if you have your own litter picker please bring it along if you can as we only have a handful of them available. Do bring your own gloves too!

Some of us are also doing Birkenhead parkrun together just before this, so you can join us for both session or just do this litter clear up!

The meet up point is outside the New Broadway Pub, New Hall Lane, L11 8LU. From there we will head up the access ramp together onto the line to start the task.

Happy Mondays - Run on!

Mon 17 Jan
Report written by John Connaghan

Our first group of 2022 was a welcome way to face Blue Monday. 8 keen faces met at the Suitcases to happily restart an old habit just when any New Year’s resolutions could’ve started to be on the wane.

After we did our introductions, we had a gentle warm around the Suitcases before heading North. We wound our way past the Wigwam and below the Royal until we had an open stretch below Everton Park. With the steps in darkness, we rerouted to run steadily up the hill knowing the rewarding views of our city lights twinkling in the dark awaited us. After a few photos it was time to make our way back, with some graduated sprints in the University grounds and a few runs on the Wigwam steps. We’d broken the seal on our 2022 group runs! Well done Danny for your first of hopefully many Monday runs and well done all for getting some good miles in. Check out the upcoming events for some good environmental work on the way in the coming weeks too😊

Thu 24 Feb 18:30 pm
Aintree University Hospital, Lower Lane, Liverpool, L9 7AL
Creating nature spaces for patients, staff and visitors to the hospital

We continue our sessions working with the NHS Recovery Ranger at a selection of Liverpool Hospitals, to help create beautiful spaces for nature and people to recover and thrive. This time we will be planting some trees at Aintree Hospital.

With the evenings still darker it's a good idea to bring a head torch if you have one! And as always, bring your own gloves.

Helping out Bradbury Field's and other charities at a visually impaired peoples at a sports day

Sun 13 Feb 10:30 am
Greenbank Centre, Greenbank Lane, Liverpool, L17 1AG
It will improve the physical and mental health of people with sight impairment/loss

Bradbury Field's in association with organisations including, Thomas Pocklington Trust , VISPA, and the Merseyside Sight Loss Council are organising a sports day at The Greenbank Centre and have asked GoodGym to help out on the day. PLEASE NOTE THAT WHILST WE ARE SUPPORTING BRADBURY FIELDS WE ARE MEETING AT THE GREENBANK SPORTS CENTRE. (address below)

Essentially what we are going to be asked to do on the day is to provide sighted support and help with the smooth running of the day. Tasks will include helping people get to the respective events, helping out with tennis, cricket, football and other sports. There is also hopefully going to be the option of a short bike ride or run for those happy to lead these but these will be weather dependent.

There are two sessions: 10.30am-1.00pm and 1.00pm-4.00pm. This is slightly longer than the normal time for a community mission, so if you are only able to fill part of a slot then please do. If you can state your preference for which session you would like to do in the message box that would be great. Matthew is going to be staying for the whole day and you are more than welcome to join him.

The event is mainly going to be indoors. They have a medical exemption, which allows this event to take place. Part of what we might be asked to do is to help with Covid regulations, such as handing out masks and hand sanitiser, as well as helping out with registration. We will be asked to fill out a form ourselves just for their own insurance purposes.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask Mat. The last time we did something like this with Bradbury Fields it was great fun and very satisfying.

GoodGym advice for any indoor tasks asks for us all to do a lateral flow test (or if we have any symptoms than a PCR test is necessary)

This one is also really good for those new to running or not yet ready for the longer runs. The task is less than a mile away from our meet up point on Hope Street, and the run will weave though the streets, with a stop off in Falkner Square Gardens for a brief fitness session before arriving at the Women's ready for the task, making it roughly 2k each way.
