3 Goodgymers went to revisit some tree's that had been planted on the weekend at Leagrave Park as part of the Queens Green Canaopy initiative. Stakes were put in the ground to support the young tree's and a mesh put round them to stop unwanted visitors trying to dig at the roots. The tree's were also given a long drink to help their roots grow.
4 runners joined the great and good of Luton at the Leagrave Park Midsummer Jubilee Festival. Local MP Sarah Owen, the Mayor of Luton, the Lord and Deputy Lieutenants of Bedfordshire visited our stand for lollipops and chats! 1 MP signed up to GoodGym...let's hope we see her with her trainers in the coming weeks!! Big shout out to Martin...our very own King of Leagrave who received an award for his volunteer work!! Back tomorrow night to properly stake the trees planted for the Queen's Canopy Scheme.
Today the team undertook the task of attending the 300th Luton Wardown Park Parkrun.
The theme for Parkrun was rainbows to celebrate Luton’s first ever pride event!
Each GoodGym member was assigned a colour to match the colours of the rainbow and they did a great job.
A generous GoodGym member was lovely enough to supply the team with pride flags to further brighten up the run and to celebrate pride.
Some of the team ran and others volunteered contributing to the great atmosphere throughout. Plus there were pride cookies, cakes and fudge to be enjoyed once runners hit the finish line.
It was a successful day and turnout to celebrate both the 300th Parkrun and the first Luton pride - definitely a day to remember! Happy pride month to all :)
P.S we successfully took a group photo of us in rainbow order.
