Slipping Gritty

Fri 15 Jan
Report written by Ellie Dove

10 runners returned to West Bank Park to grit it all up after a sub-zero day. Luckily, a lot of grit remained from yesterday so it was just a case of topping up all the paths. The park was gritted in record time (maybe?) in just over half an hour, which is good as it was rather chilly!

Sprinkling grit at WBP - week 2, day 2

Fri 15 Jan 18:30 pm
West Bank Park, James Backhouse Place, York, YO24 4NS
Park users will be able to use it safely

We were asked by Kristina from the Council to help with gritting paths across West Bank Park during the current cold snap.

The plan is for us to visit on an evening and sprinkle grit on paths across the park. City of York Council staff will be checking the paths in the morning, before opening the park.

We have a key to the gate and the tools store where the gritting equipment is kept. The park will be closed, or about to be closed for the night by the security company.

IMPORTANT

To avoid slipping and falling on a frozen surface walk using small steps and try to have both feet on the ground as much as you can. Wear shoes with good grip. It will be cold, so try warming up before coming to the task.

Bring your gardening gloves and a head torch, as it will be dark.

It is crucial that we all follow the latest COVID-19 guidance while at the task.

This task is classes as essential in order to keep the park open for its users.

Meet by the James Backhouse Place gate.

The Gritted Mitch of the West (Bank Park)

Thu 14 Jan
Report written by Debs Sharpe

With 6 hours notice the Goodgym Grit Gurus were mobilised once more to help with the essential task of keeping West Bank Park safe for the local residents. Temperatures were dropping, leftover snow was turning to ice, and the space is needed for permitted exercise without fear of slipping.

Firstly we had to give a massive cheer to Michael for finally managing to complete his 50th good deed on the 3rd attempt!

As many good deeds as his age! Ed

We're not quite sure what's taken him so long, but (rightly) cancelling gritting missions due to dastardly warm weather didn't help.

We also welcomed Stuart to his first task - cold, dark and a bit damp, like all the best Goodgym tasks. Welcome on board!

Once we'd divided up, got headlights on barrows and shown the newbie gritters the trademark shovel-trowel grit 'n' flick technique, we were off. Cape-man and Robin (also known as Debs) set off for the lower playground, the Paulsopps for the playpark past the pagoda, and everyone else for the middle.

The remains of the snow cover made the ground slippy going, and many a puddle swallowed up grit never to be seen again. But the team persevered and worked their ways back into towards the buildings and the starting point, with Mitchell definitely not gritting any green bits inbetween.

Ellie was so thorough that she even persuaded some of the parks younger users (budding horticulturalists) to move along a bit so she could grit where they were standing.

All done we distance-assembled back at the start and cleaned off tools to prevent any corrosion from the salt. That makes this chemist very happy. One team photo later,

Look epic! ... how do we do that?...I went for silly (Leanne)

one practically perfect pun from the practically perfect Paul Kelly, and we were done for the night.
