Getting Ship Shape, Ship Shape

Mon 20 Sep
Report written by Tom Mutton

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.

Not Known, ???, ???
Keeping the streets tidy

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

Lumberjack work for Heeley City Farm (HCF)

Mon 11 Oct 18:30 pm
Showroom Cinema , 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield, S1 2BX
We will be chopping logs to allow them to dry out. HCF will sell them and hopefully make some much needed income to go back into the site!

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.
