Laying bark chipping for the fairies

Sat 23 Oct

The community-run Fairy Foss Trail are getting a delivery of bark chippings to cover thin, muddy areas of the trail and need our help in laying it all out. I imagine wheelbarrows, spades and fairy-spotting will all be involved 🙂

Note map is coming up wrong - see description and photo!

York parkrun and social 🥳

Sat 30 Oct 08:50 am
York Racecourse,, Racecourse Road, Knavesmire Road, , York , YO23 1EX
Do parkrun then come for coffee/breakfast ☕🍳

Come and run/walk York parkrun with your GoodGym pals then join us for coffee/breakfast at the Knavesmire pub afterwards.

I hear it's a flat one (PB anyone?!) And if you've not done it before, it's a chance to get a Y for your parkrun alphabet. What's not to love?!

More info about York parkrun, including where the start is, can be found on their course page

I'm told that Knavesmire Road is a good place to park and if you use What3words, it's grin.helps.empire

Look out for the red GoodGym tops just inside the entrance to the Knavesmire and either run with a GG buddy or go your own pace, whatever you fancy!

We may start doing this regularly (maybe every month or so?), including doing some parkrun tourism. Let me know what you think, and if you've got any favourite parkruns you'd like to visit 👌🏼

Leaf-clearing at Clarence Gardens

Mon 25 Oct 18:15 pm
York CVS, Denham Room, 15 Priory Street , York , YO1 6ET
Keeping the garden lovely and tidy for autumn

Welcome to GoodGym York!

We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. Every Monday we meet to get active and do a physical task to help the charities or community organisations in our city.

WHERE WE MEET

We meet at the Priory Street Centre and our usual room is the Denham Room. As you approach the front of the Centre, turn right and go to the car park area. The room we use is locked whilst we're out so you can leave your bits and bobs in there. We will have a person at the door managing one in, one out system while dropping the bags etc. There is no requirement to wear a face mask when entering the building, as you will be there by yourself and only for a short period of time, but you can wear one if you feel more comfortable that way. 10 bay pay and display car park is available behind the nursery block, to the left as you approach front of the Centre. In addition on street parking is available on Priory Street.

THE TASK

Tonight, we'll be helping keep one of our local parks nice and tidy for autumn, clearing leaves at Clarence Gardens.

Tools and some light will be provided but please bring gardening gloves and a headtorch if you've got one as the nights are drawing in.

RUNNING AND WALKING WITH US

GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and if the task is close enough we have a walking group too. It's possible to walk to this task (1.5km each way). Walkers will leave at 18:25 promptly so please arrive in plenty of time.

We always have a back-marker too so nobody will get left behind - no matter what your pace is.

POST-RUN SOCIAL

We will head to The Ackhorne Pub on St Martin's Lane after our run for a spot of liquid refreshment and a good chat. Please join us!
