Report written by Nicky Woodall

🚜 Seventeen smashing GoodGymmers met for our weekly group run, to help the council at Hull Road Park. After naming and numbering with our favourite modes of transport (many, many cyclists at GoodGym York, who knew 🚲), we did a warm up and headed off.

🌹 It was a fairly warm evening and we may have taken a slightly scenic route on the way there (definitely my fault, sorry). On arrival, Kristina swiftly set us to work doing various tasks around the rose garden. Rich was quick to volunteer for strimming, whilst others divided into edgers, rakers, sycamore-cutters and bindweed-removers. Debs found an equivalent to bindweed that had taken over one of the rose beds, with 20-foot roots, and set to work removing as much as possible in the time available 🌱

🌳 A lot of green waste was created that then needed barrowing a fair distance across the park. This led to the dilemma of when to stop generating said waste 💪

🥳 We eventually decided to do a quick fitness game while we waited, before waving goodbye to our party-pace group. Meanwhile, we (mostly Debs, Nick and Michael) helped Kristina stack the van, in just the right way for the council-approved tool-Tetris 🧩

🦵 The rest of us headed back at a swift-ish trot, with the intention of doing some single-leg squats at each set of red traffic lights (which were surprisingly few this time) 🚦

😎 We stretched and cooled down before parting ways, to the pub and/or home 🍻 ☕
