I'm torn between Sheffield and Barnsley :)
On another beautiful sunny Sheffield afternoon we met outside The Showroom Cinema and got ready for the off. Our new friend Mohammed jumped in for the group photo before we headed off toward Ship Shape with James as our trusty back marker.
On arrival, unfortunately there wasn't anyone around to greet us and provide us with tools so we had to think on our feet. We did what we could with what we had and got litter picking and weeding what we were certain were weeds! Despite trying Regather down the road to see if there was anything we could do for them quickly it wasn't a goer so we did what we could at Ship Shape, had some excellent photos at the front door and then headed to the U-Mix center for an extended fitness session.
This weeks fitness session involved some paired work with one partner on the the planters doing step up's, step up's squat downs or box jumps, whilst the others did a lap of the area.
Next up we headed down to the climbing frame and again did a couple of paired rounds of dead arm hangs, knee lifts or leg lifts whilst partners did their choice of press ups, using the concrete steps to increase/decrease intensity.
Following a fantastic fitness session we headed home for stretching and refreshments at the Showroom. Hopefully we will be back at Ship Shape again in the future.
Litter picking of the areas surrounding Park Hill.

Saturday 18 September is World Cleanup Day https://www.worldcleanupday.org/
To do our bit, it would great if as many GGers as possible could pick a bag in their local area "plog my street" style.
Choose your spot, choose your time, go alone or meet with others. You could even join a group pick (see the events section of https://www.facebook.com/groups/SheffieldLitterPickers). I'll be picking a bag on the way home from work. Post a photo to the GG chat
We will be heading back to Lavender Court in Kendray to help them with a general sprucing up of the residents' vegetable garden 🥦 🌽
We will meet on Yews Lane opposite Kendray Recreation Ground and run together to Lavender Court, the distance will be around 1 mile. GoodGymers not wanting to run can meet us at the task.
👉 Please note: This task needs at least 4 volunteers to go ahead. If there aren't at least 4 people signed up 48 hours before the task, it will be cancelled 👈

HCF have just had several large trees cut down due to disease, these have been logged but need splitting - HCF have invested in log splitters (so no sharp axes!) and some sledge hammers!
Once split, the logs can then be placed in sacks and wheel-barrowed to the log store, so lots of tasks to keep a big group busy! Lifting, rolling logs, log splitting, bagging up and barrowing.
Safety googles will be provided by Julie for those using the sledghammers and those nearby to ensure eyes are safe.
Please bring your own gloves.
