NOT Catching Fire

Tue 26 Jul
Report written by Kate Bowden

Last night 10 runners ran and walked 2.5km to help the Friends of Park Hill park look after the park in the warm weather. After last week was cancelled due to the extreme heat wave, our come back saw us hit the ground running!

It was great last night to see some familiar faces after a few weeks away. Although some were a little uncertain about their fitness coming back to running, we took off at an easy pace with one group running and the other walking and we all made it in good time to meet Josie and Catherine outside the walled garden. Hannah had popped by to say Hello, and a couple of dogs from the Puppy Club wondered over to see us and wag a tail as well.

There were several jobs to be done in the park. Ingrid, Paul and Ollie set about litter picking in the main areas of the park. This was a specialist task today as it is suspected local wild fires at Shirley Hills were started due to the heat being magnified by glass bottles. With Good Gym on the case, the park was soon saved from any potential fires and a lot of other litter was tidied up too.

In the walled garden, the roses we planted a few weeks ago are having a tough time in the heat and need a little TLC. The Friends volunteers have been watering and pruning them, so we added a little bit of bonemeal feed and Ian and Karim gave them a good watering. Sam, Dovile, Magda and Ros weeded and hoed the patch around the new plants to give them space to grow and keep the garden looking good. Although it didn't look like there was too much to start with, they had soon cleared several wheel barrows to the compost heap.

After the hard work, Karim had a treat for us all and shared around ice lollies he had brought during the heat wave. They were delicious, thank you!

Goodbye farewell

Tue 5 Jul
Report written by Conroy

Today we started off with five from our start location but we knew by the time we got to the task our numbers would multiply as others had sent messages to say they would meet up at the task.

After a little nattering finding out about our weekend, walking holiday and period of sickness that made some unable to join us on previous weeks, we headed over to Ruskin square car park for our warm up before setting off on our jog to the task.

Today we were heading over to Tunstall Nursery School to help with tidying up the playground and surrounding area. As we approach the gate we could see someone running toward us in a red t-shirt, to our surprise it was Magda, she has been out injured for some time so seeing her back jogging was welcomed. After greeting her we all went inside the nursery where Jane was awaiting g our arrival. She informed us of the various tasks she had for us to do, there was a huge tyre that needed to be moved, the area for their wild school was overgrown and needed to be cleared, the playground needed to be swept.

As we set about working on the various task we were joined by Ros, Nicola and Karim, it was just a passing visit for Karim as he lives local and although currently under doctors orders of no exercise, he missed us so the took a stroll down to say hello and fill us in on how his operation went before heading back to his sick bed.

While speaking to Jane we found out that this was going to be her last time with us at the nursery as she was retiring, her plans in no particular order was to visit friends she has not seen in over 20 years, visit Iceland, Scotland and Ireland while also trying to find herself a nice little place to call home in the South West of England.

We finished all the task that was there for us bid Jane our farewell and headed back to solutions.
