Who You Gonna Call? Post Busters!

Tue 12 Oct
Report written by David Mansfield

A last minute replacement for our planned riverside task, we were tasked with helping Love Luton distribute road closure notices to a bunch of streets that will be affected by the upcoming half marathon.

We had a quick warm up and then started posting letters to all the businesses and residences around the town centre, jogging leapfrog style all the way up Park Street and back again all the way to St Georges Square.

A few hundred letters posted in under an hour, with a team effort, a bit of jogging and a few staircases, it's actually good fun and a welcome break from last weeks long distance run!

Riverside Cleanup at Manor Park

Tue 12 Oct 18:45 pm
Luton centre, Luton, LU1 2SW
Improving Luton's valuable green spaces

The river through Manor park was recently re-naturalised from its former concrete banks. While nature gets itself re-established we're going to give it a guiding hand and remove the undesirable plants that have moved in under the instruction of Trevor the council's ecologist.

Expect nettles, long sleeves will be a good idea!

A Thistle Stop Tour

Tue 28 Sep
Report written by David Mansfield

This week six GoodGymmers assembled as the autumnal weather blew in the rain. We ran 3km up the hill to find out task, the 'Welcome to Luton' gravel sign.

The first thing you see as you enter South Luton from the M1, it was riddled with thistles and wasn't quite sending the best welcome message.

Despite being a prickly job we got it tidied up quickly as the rain arrived. With a clean, clear sign visible to passing cars and planes we ran away before the worst of the rain arrived!

Trimming World

Tue 21 Sep
Report written by David Mansfield

We climbed up from the town centre, through High Town and on to Hitchin Road where our task awaited.

We got stuck in clearing up the weeds growing along the road here. Spades, hoes, shears, brushes and brooms went rapidly through the overgrowth, restoring this path to a neat and tidy state. Great effort from everyone in the team, getting a huge stretch done!

Job done we headed on to People's Park where we did a short pressups-and-side-planks workout to the tune of Chumbawumba's Tubthumping , and then on back into town.

Great job team!

Street Cleanup with ABCD-in-Luton

Tue 21 Sep 18:45 pm
St George's Square, Luton, LU1 2NG
Keeping Luton Tidy

We made a real difference to the streetscape on Vauxhall Way and there's still plenty to do around town, so we'll join forces again with Kevin and Phyll of ABCD Luton to tackle a green on Hitchin Road called Turner's Knoll

It's a good uphill workout getting there, and a nice gentle come down afterwards.
