Barnsley meet up!
With the end of the year and GoodGym Barnsley in mind, we're having a catch-up lunch to give everybody the chance to meet up again in a fun and friendly setting (with food of course). If you've been taking a break from GoodGym for a while, or have someone new that you think would like to join us, this is the perfect opportunity to say hi and have a chat :)
Our new ops manager from head office Theresa will be coming up to meet us and say hello, and have a chat with us to help plan some exciting things and shape the future of GoodGym Barnsley.
We will be booking a table at our run start location Glasshouse so will need final numbers by midday Wednesday 24th November.
Can't wait to see you all!
Please note that this group run has been cancelled.
For this task we will be distributing some of the new GoodGym flyers to help build up the GoodGym presence - and hopefully recruit some new members - in Barnsley.
We will be meeting at our start location outside Glasshouse and enjoying a short run together to start distributing in the Old Town.
This task is perfect for beginners! It's a nice easy task with a gentle run and of course plenty of chatter and laughs. So if you know somebody who has been thinking about joining GoodGym, or somebody who you think would love it, bring them along ☺️
3 GoodGymers ran to the YMCA Allotment today to show some love to one of the beds. On arrival we were delighted by all the apples and raspberries available for picking - Andrea from the YMCA told us to help ourselves, which we did! 🍏
After showing us what work needs to be done, Andrea and Mike unlocked the lock-up for us then we set to work with our tools to weed the bed. We came across some lovely plants that Celine identified for us and even found a blueberry bush amongst the weeds that we happily relocated and replanted. 🍇
Max also managed to uproot a gigantic weed which was taller than all of us! After working hard on the bed we raked the soil and covered the bed with cardboard to prevent sunlight reaching any remaining weeds. There's still plenty of work to be done, all for another day. A good start today though!
