Helping keep West Bank Park beautiful

Maintaining the loveliness of this park

Welcome to GoodGym York πŸ™Œ

πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒWe'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 πŸŽ’ We meet at the Priory Street Centre and our usual room is the Foxwood 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.

😷 If you would like still to wear a face mask when entering the building to drop bags off, that's fine.

🚲There is cycle parking as you approach the Centre and a 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.

TONIGHT 🌱We’re heading to West Bank Park with Kristina from the council tonight.

THE TASK 🧀 As we'll be working in the park, don't forget your gardening gloves.

RUNNING AND WALKING WITH US πŸ‘GoodGym is for everyone. We welcome runners of all abilities and if the task is close enough we have a walking group too.

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

POST-RUN SOCIAL 🍻We normally head to The Ackhorne Pub on St Martin's Lane after our run for a spot of liquid refreshment and a good chat (COVID guidance-pending, obviously). Please join us!

πŸ‘£ (Not) dragging our heels πŸ‘

Report written by Nicky Woodall

🌦️ 22 brilliant GoodGymmers met on a pleasantly sunny Monday evening, very relieved that the rain had stopped in time for our group run. We heard about everyone's running achievements at Round Sheffield Run on Saturday and also received a parkrun recommendation with the Griffins giving high praise to Sewerby after their run there this weekend πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒ

β˜•πŸΉ We started our naming-numbering-warm up with our favourite drinks, from tea to whisky, before heading to Rowntree Park for our task with St. Nick's. Our job today was loading tarps with dock cuttings and transporting them to the compost area of the local allotments, which turned out not to be very close! The other job was more of our favourite scything. Everyone got stuck in with aplomb πŸ‘Œ

πŸ’ͺ After many tarp-loads and plenty of scythe-swishes, we were almost done. Some of our non-running heroes took the final (and very large) tarp-load to the compost area whilst our running heroes did the famous/infamous bleep test. There were some very admirable efforts (alongside some slight disagreement about how to respond to the double-bleep 🀣) - brilliant work everyone πŸ₯³

πŸ‘ And after a jog back to base, that was that (other than some very yummy baking from Lucy πŸ˜‹).

🀩 Thank you everyone, and see you next week (or at rounders/Endure in the meantime) πŸ‘‹

A complete set-up!

Report written by Leanne Allsopp

Six GG Yorkies met at West Bank Park to help set up for the summer fair.

Our list of tasks included:

  • Moving 4 gazebos across the park and setting them up
  • Carrying 5 tables and setting up under the gazebos
  • Moving and setting up 40 folding chairs for the brass band - plus another 10 for the scouts
  • Putting 'no parking' traffic cones outside the park's main entrances to ensure no traffic obstruction.

We made short work of the task, and even had time to spend a few minutes chatting to Barbara who dropped in to say hello on her way past during her morning run.

Heavy lifting/dragging (and other lighter jobs!) for St Nick's

Making York's environment nicer for everyone

Welcome to GoodGym York πŸ™Œ

πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒWe'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.

TONIGHT 🌱We’re helping St Nick's, near Millennium Bridge tonight. There will be lots of dragging of tarps and bags full of chopped up plants that will have been cut all along New Walk earlier in the day. The plants will need dragging up to the compost bay in the allotment near Fullford cross.

THE TASK 🧀 As we'll be lifting/dragging things, please bring gardening gloves if possible and don't forget to be kind to your back (lift from the knees please!). If lifting isn't your thing, there are plenty of other helpful jobs, including cutting back and filling the bags πŸ‘Œ

WHERE WE MEET πŸŽ’ We meet at the Priory Street Centre and our usual room is the Foxwood 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.
