Painting the Offices at the Greenhouse

Tue 26 Oct 18:45 pm
St George's Square, Luton, LU1 2NG
Smartening up this community facility

This week we'll be heading to Stopsley, where the Baptist Church's GreenHouse (Not an actual greenhouse!) needs a lick of paint to freshen it up.

The office space here is used by GreenHouse Mentoring to help young people get a decent start in life as well as other community focused groups.

The building is undergoing a big change this winter to introduce a cafe and we'll help it through to an exciting, fresh, clean new start in the new year when it will really become a vibrant community hub.

You may get painty so don't wear anything you'd be horrified to get paint on! Paint splatters on your GoodGym shirt are essentially distinguished service medals!

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!

Return to the Roots to Recovery garden

Tue 19 Oct 18:45 pm
St George's Square, Luton, LU1 2QB
Help this therapeutic garden thrive

The team at Penrose Roots to Recovery really appreciated our first visit and there's still plenty to do there so we are heading back.

Much like last time we will head down and finish off preparing the beds. There's hedges that need trimming and I'm sure plenty more to do as well.

On the way back we will stop for a bit of fitness in Wardown park.

We'll have a group doing a walk-jog to the task if you aren't sure you will be able to run the whole way, you can jog as much as you're able and walk as much as you need to.

Wardown Park Run

Sat 9 Oct

Everyone loves a Parkrun, but who really warms up properly? GoodGymmers do!

We'll meet up at the boathouse by the lake before the race and shake off the sleep and wake up our muscles ready to take on the Parkrun in peak performance.

If you've never been to a parkrun before you'll need to register on the parkrun website and get your barcode, bring it to the run otherwise your time won't be recorded!

Cutting Back a Bramble Patch

Sat 16 Oct 10:00 am
Five Springs Car Park, Leagrave Park, Luton, LU2 3LH
Improving Luton's valuable green spaces

The Five Springs area of Leagrave Park is in need of a bit of attention, so we're going to help our very own Martin and his Friends of Leagrave Park reclaim a patch from an invasion of the brambles.

Just by the Five Springs carpark there's an information board but you wouldn't know it, it's been completely covered by brambles! The task is to cut this back to the hedgerow and reveal the info board that lies beneath.

With a few of us we can make quick work of this job and make this entrance to the park much more welcoming and informative!

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!
