Ain’t no (Gleadless) valley high enough!!

Mon 8 Aug
Report written by Tom Mutton

8 AWESOME goodgymers came out last night to help INCREDIBLE IREN who consistently does an amazing job keeping her area of the city clean and tidy.

It was fantastic to welcome Ellie and Yvette who have both recently moved from other areas to the mighty Sheffield. Neither are new to GG having volunteered in other cities. Hope you both enjoyed it and will be back for more soon!

The Sun was shining and the weather was sweet yea! We moved our running feet up, up and away all the way to the Gleadless Valley via the Co-Op for Michelle to drop of some plastic recycling. The green theme continued with litter picking and brushing to tidy up a messy and glass ridden section of walking and cycling path that is used a lot as a link to/from the Gleadless Valley amenities from surrounding housing areas. We were thanked by path users as we filled up 11 bags and then tied them up and took them to the nearest AMEY bin for collection.

On route back we went via some of Celine’s old haunts and she pointed out her old flat and some of he numerous community planting endeavours she had lead on whilst living in the area. What an absolute ⭐️!

On return to base we stretched off and some grabbed an alfresco drink and chatted of Shindigs, fixing bikes and checking of passports!

Until next time, happy running :)

Gleadless Valley Litter Pickers - Pathway pick and lop

Mon 8 Aug 18:30 pm
Showroom Cinema , 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield, S1 2BX
Visual impact of longstanding littering cleared/a spruce up of the area to make it look more cared for.

We will be helping Gleadless Valley Litter Pickers clear up of litter from path edges and cut back vegetation to keep paths clear for users.

Risks It is possible that there may be hazardous waste (such as needles, broken glass) in the area. A risk assessment will be done beforehand and the Good Gym team will be alerted to any risks at the start of the task so they can be avoided.

Organiser Iren will let the group know where bags of litter should be left and will arrange collection by the council afterwards

Keeping it Cool

Wed 27 Jul
Report written by Rachel

I ran to meet Natalie this morning to move a fridge/freezer for Mrs S. We initially struggled to get into the building after getting silence over the intercom twice; we wondered if Mrs S had forgotten we were coming. Once we'd navigated to the correct flat, Mrs S was indeed in, with a friend and a engineer also present doing some work in the kitchen. We waited outside for the engineer to finish what he was doing and he kindly offered to give us a hand as the fridge was quite big! It ended up not being too heavy and was quickly moved into the next room. 15 minutes and we headed off on our way as Mrs S seemed quite distressed having people in her home. I hope it's more accessible where it is now and gives her more space in the kitchen.

Well well well road... Time for a haircut

Mon 20 Jun
Report written by Tom Mutton

With all this lovely weather we have been having it has meant that green growth has been shooting up everywhere! It's fantastic to see but from time to time the hedges around Heeley People's Park need a quick trim to keep things looking prim and proper and providing good open paths for pedestrians passing by. Peter pepper picked a peck of pickled peppers.

14 of us rocked up to help Parky Rob with the task this week. After a brief brief we got straight to it, grabbing loppers and cutting back the overgrowth to fill the provided tonne bags with the cuttings which were then placed in the park for composting. We also had a good sweep of the pavement and the gutter after to clean up after ourselves and leave the paths wider and nice and clear for all users.

After a good lot of cutting, tree and berry identification we popped tools back into the barrows, emptied the final tonne bags and said our farewells to Rob until the next time.

Before people went their separate ways we got some fitness in on the steps with a couple of short 30s bursts of:

  • Press Ups (3 options)
  • Box jumps or stair sets

Once complete we headed off into the hot summers eve back to the Showroom for some stretching and cooling down.

Until next week, happy running :)

A Cut Above the Rest

Mon 16 May
Report written by Tom Mutton

We welcomed some traveling GG members from Leicester in the form of Zachary who was one his first run and Elena. You are both welcome back anytime and hope you enjoyed it!

This week we were back to help out our good pal PARKY ROB who is always so appreciative of the work we do. Unfortunately he had some bad news for us, letting us know that some of the trees in the park were to be chopped down due to Ash die back. Sad times, but necessary to keep the park users safe.

Out task for this week was to cut back three beds that were getting a bit keen with the better weather and encroaching onto the pavement and park a bit too much, so we got straight to it giving them a good haircut.

James proved too strong for the secateurs which were fortunately the only casualty on the night.

Well I avoided the cape as long as I could but MARVELOUS MAX wouldn't let me get away with it. With the 200 milestone reminder it was time to done the silky marvel and embrace the magic. We said our goodbyes to Rob and some of the other runners and headed to the U-Mix center for some DOUBLE TROUBLE, working in pairs and each taking on 4 exercises in total, including:

  • Box Jumps
  • Step Ups
  • Leg Lifts
  • Chin Ups

Back at base we stretched off and headed in to sample the extensive new menu The Showroom had to offer.

Until next week, happy running :)

A King Sized Wedgie

Thu 28 Apr
Report written by Natalie G

GG Max and I went to move a mattress from an upstairs spare room to make space for medical equipment. However the stairs were very narrow and the mattress VERY large! I got wedged underneath it on the stairs but with much furniture rearranging from Max and wiggling from me, we eventually managed to bend it into the hallway and then outside for collection. The resident was very grateful of the extra space!
