Last minute change of plan, Litter Pick in Thirlmere Park!

Mon 23 May

Welcome to GoodGym Liverpool

We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every Monday evening to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations and projects across Liverpool.

Most Group Runs will be lead one of our fabulous volunteer qualified Run Leaders, but watch out for ones listed as 'Social Runs' as this means no Run Leader is present but we still go out and run together keeping our 'no one left beind' GoodGym vibe in place!

The Task

Last minute change of plan for this evening as the original task owner has had to cancel. So we will be headed just a few streets away to the fabulous Thirlmere Park to help out our friends at Creative Spaces Co. give the park a tidy up!

All tools are provided but please bring your own gloves.

The Run

We'll be meeting at the Suitcases on Hope Street for a warm up and a run to the task. What 3 Words meet up link

Our Run Leader Sophie will take us on roughly a 3K run from Hope Street to the task in Everton

There isn't a group walking option for this task, but if the run isn't for you then you can always make your own way to the task and meet the runners there: Thirlmere Park, Thirlmere Road (just off Breakfield Road North), L5 6PP

Do let us know if you are meeting the runners there though!

The run is about 1.7 miles (2.7k) each way.

If you prefer to walk do leave a comment, it's just under 40 minutes so we will need to leave the meet up point a little earlier to get there at the same time as the runners, so do let us know!

The Task

Liverpool Streetscene Services (part of the City Council) are donating us 20 litter picking kits (including litter pickets, hoops, gloves and bags!) so we can continuing doing our bit to help keep Liverpool in good shape. Their team will be meeting us at the beginning of this session to hand over the kits and do a photo for a press release so they can shout out about supporting us, and we can spread the word about all things GoodGym. The more the better for this session, but don't worry if you don't want to be in the press photo as that part is optional!

All tools are provided but please bring your own gloves.

Someone's knocking at the door...

Mon 2 May
Report written by John Connaghan

The mission this evening was to share knowledge with the community around St Cleopas Church of Food Cycle. Food Cycle provides the hungry and lonely in our communities with delicious meals and great conversation, using food that would otherwise go to waste.

Meeting at the church, Ema shared out the leaflets with Heetu who’d run from the South and Eimear and John from the north. Focusing on the surrounding areas, in synchronised relay, we left no letterbox unopened (unless it had No Junk Mail!).

There are some leaflets left despite a solid hours leafletting so look out for a follow up task. Well done all for spreading the word

The Task

Foodcycle's vision is to make food poverty, loneliness and food waste a thing of the past for every community. They hold free meal events with everything cooked by their volunteers from surplus food that would otherwise be going to landfill.

They have asked us to help spread the word in the local community for their weekly event in Dingle. We'll be dropping leaflets through the doors of those who live near FoodCycle Liverpool Dingle to let them know about the amazing meals!

The Run

We'll be meeting at the Suitcases on Hope Street for a warm up and a run (with walk option) to the task. What 3 Words meet up link

John will lead us on approx. 1.5 mile (2.4k) to St Cleopas Church on Mill Street in Dingle.

Not for the Weedy

Mon 25 Apr
Report written by Sophie McClellan

Meeting again on Hope Street, this week we were thrilled to welcome Bekah for her first group run!

After a quick warm up, we headed off up the hill towards Kensington Fields Community Centre for some serious weeding!

When we arrived we were met by Ema and Tafwauli.

The task was to help prepare a community growing space to be used once more. The space had been used pre-covid but was in serious need of tlc. We set right too it digging out all sorts of grass/dandelions/nettles/mares tail and had soon rid the beds of weeds.

A quick slice of cake saw us on our way down the hill. (apologies that the strava is missing, but I forgot to turn it off once we were back)

There is still plenty to do, so I suspect we will be back again soon! I can't wait to see what they've done with the space when we return!

Weed Meet Again

Sat 16 Apr
Report written by Matthew

On a perfect day for gardening, not too hot, not too sunny, 4 Good Gym members, Heetu, Tony, Ruth, and Mat went back to help Gerry at The De La Salle kitchen garden. This was one of our first tasks out of lockdown last year. What a difference a year makes. They have transformed a barren area of land into a wonderful kitchen garden with polly-tunnels, raised beds, and fruit trees, so it's lovely to have been able to help them on their horticultural journey.

The aim is to use all the fruit and veg. produced in the kitchen which is part of what is going to be a hotel for trainees in the hospitality industry.

Our task on Saturday was to dig out an area which is going to used to plant more fruit trees. With Gerry, our host digging in we got most of what was a tough area dug over, de-stoned and de-weeded. Another very satisfying task and as the work never ends we'll be back again for sure.
