Delivering Leaflets for Kirkwood Hospice

Tue 14 Jun 18:30 pm
Stadium Health & Fitness Club, Stadium Way, Huddersfield, HD1 6PG
Promoting the Midnight Memory Walk

The Midnight Memory Walk is Kirkwood Hospice's biggest fundraising event, with over 1,200 participants walking in memory of a loved one. The 2022 edition is set to be bigger and better than ever before, and to help out with this the hospice have called on GoodGym to assist by delivering leaflets on the walk route to make local residents aware of the event.

We will be out and about in the Rawthorpe and Dalton areas posting flyers through letterboxes to help ensure that everyone knows about the Midnight Memory Walk before it takes place in early July. It is difficult to say how far we will run on this one, but expect something between 5 and 7K with plenty of posting! There will also be opportunity to have a breather if you need one.

Come and give it a shot! The more runners we have the more leaflets we can get distributed which means more people will be aware of this cracking fundraising event!

Stumpbusting and Graveyard Gardening at Christ Church

Tue 31 May 18:30 pm
Stadium Health & Fitness Club, Stadium Way, Huddersfield, HD1 6PG
Keeping the churchyard tidy

We're back to Christ Church to continue our ongoing mission has been to clear overgrown vegetation and keep the churchyard looking tidy. If you are free and you fancy some heavy duty gardening simply sign up, this is a great task and both Reverend Charlotte and the church's elderly congregation are always very appreciative of our efforts.

To keep GoodGym accessible to those who do not wish to or are unable to take part in the group run, there is now an option to meet at the task.

So if you are running we will convene outside the entrance to the Stadium Health & Fitness Club at 6:30pm. Please note we are not currently able to use the changing facilities, so arrive ready to run. If you are meeting us at the task you'll need to be at Christ Church Moldgreen at 7pm. We'll finish the task for 8pm and run back at the Stadium for 8:30pm.

Obviously if you can run please do so, but if you're unable to we'll see you at Christ Church.

Making the Bed

Sat 21 May
Report written by Saul Muldoon

We made a bed yesterday, that's a flower bed on Cowciffe Recreation Ground. The people of Cowcliffe were keen to convert a patch of overgrown land into something mote attractive ahead of their Platinum Jubilee fare and GoodGym were only too happy to help out.

With picks, spades, forks and mattocks to hand GoodGymmers Kati Law, Ben Godfrey, David Bilton and myself spent a very enjoyable morning making the bed.

Unmaking the bed

Tue 17 May
Report written by Saul Muldoon

South Crosland Junior School had a old raised bed that needed dismantling, so along with our friends from Growing works GoodGym were called in to tackle the job.

An hour of hard labour later we had made a dent in the job, but there is still plenty to do on our return visit next Tuesday.

Thanks and well done to Kati Law, Louse Galvin, Zena Whalley and David Bilton for their top effort this evening.

Promoting GoodGym at the Berry Brow Carnival

Sat 18 Jun 12:30 pm
Berry Brow Playing Fields, Off Ladyhouse Lane, Huddersfield, HD4 7QD
Raising awareness of the good GoodGym does in our local area

We've delivered flyers for the Berry Brow Carnival now we are going to be part of the event itself. GoodGym Huddersfield is to host a stall at this this lovely little community carnival where we can promote our services to other community organisations and also raise awareness amongst local people to maybe recruit some more runners to our cause.

The event runs from 12:30pm until 5pm, but you'll not need to be there for the entire afternoon, if you'll able to spare an hour or two to join us that would be great (although you'd be very welcome to stay for the entire duration of course).

We'll be handing out flyers and chatting to carnival goers and explaining why GoodGym is such a great thing to do. There may also be some work to do helping set up the carnival, stewarding and clearing up afterwards......I'm sure there'll be opportunity for an cheeky ice cream too amongst the hard work!

Removing a Raised Bed

Tue 24 May 18:30 pm
Lockwood Park Health & Fitness Club, Brewery Drive, Huddersfield, HD4 6EN
Making a wild flower meadow for Netherton Infant School

We’ve built raised beds for Growing works before, well now we are going to remove one!

The folks at Netherton Infant School have decided they want their raised beds, built from old railway sleepers, shifting in order to make way for a wild flower meadow. We’ll need plenty of muscle for lifting and shifting, and don’t forget to bring your gloves.

The run is from the Lockwood Park Health & Fitness Club, meeting at 6:30pm outside the main entrance. The run is 3K each way, including some off-road sections and a couple of steep gradients.

Please note the change of start venue for this run

Life with Plastic, not Fantastic!

Mon 16 May
Report written by Rachel

This week, Goodgymmers joined people from across the country to help Greenpeace with The Big Plastic Count 2022 . The task was simple: count all the plastic you throw away in a week (dividing into categories) so they can use this as evidence to pressure government and industry into creating reusable alternatives.

It is quite confronting to see when tallied up. I do try to use refills and choose things with less packaging where I can, but I soon realised that my penchant for snacking is my downfall... bad for the planet as well as my waistline.

Naomi felt similar:

It's been an interesting task ... we recycle everything we can, but seeing it laid out over such a short period is heart-breaking. I changed from vegetarian to vegan last year to try and do more for the planet, but even that diet comes with a lot of plastic (tofu packaging, salad bags, nut packets etc) and buying second hand clothes from eBay that arrive in plastic envelopes!

Tracey got all arty with her colouring pencils to colour code her tally chart each day. She also found that she could return plant pots to a local garden centre for reuse.

I hope it's been an interesting exercise and encourages people to look how they personally can reduce their plastic waste as well as encouraging global governmental change. Don't worry if you haven't managed to log your results yet, or you forgot to log every day! You have until the end of the month to log your count, so you could do this week instead and you can still submit your data if you didn't do the full week
