Plogging

Tue 26 Oct 18:30 pm
Stadium Health & Fitness Club, Stadium Way, Huddersfield, HD1 6PG
Keeping Huddersfield litter free

Plogging is a combination of the Swedish term "plocka up" (to pick up) and the "jogga" (jog). So plogging is exactly what GoodGym will be doing on Tuesday evening this week. Armed with litter pickers and hoops we'll set forth from the Stadium at 6:30pm to jogga and plocka any rubbish as and where we find it.

There's plenty of litter to plocka so we'll not be running far or fast, I imagine we'll probably cover no more than about 5K in total with lots of stops to remove refuse.

Getting Golcar's Ginnels Looking Great Again

Sat 27 Nov 10:30 am
Golcar Central Liberal Club, 10 Church Street, Golcar, HD7 4AH
Keeping these little links clear for local people and visitors alike

If you're not from Yorkshire you may never have heard of a ginnel, I certainly hadn't before I came to live in Kirklees. However the people of Golcar know ginnels, as they have loads of these little narrow alleyways throughout the village. In fact Golcar is so famous for ginnels there is even a dedicated and marked Ginnel Trail for local people and tourists use on a daily basis.

However some Golcar's ginnels on the trail are currently becoming a little overgrown with weeds, making them unsightly and challenging for some users. As a result GoodGym is joining forces with the Golcar Environment Group for a morning of intensive ginnel clearance. Focussing on one of the most overgrown examples we'll don our gardening gloves and blitz the weeds leaving the ginnel tidier and safer for future users.

If you are able to, please walk, run or cycle to this Community Mission.

Getting to the Root of the Problem

Tue 5 Oct
Report written by Saul Muldoon

4 GoodGymmers, 1 headtorch and very wet and windy conditions didn't stop us continuing our ongoing task to remove unwanted shrubs and trees from the Christ Church yard in Moldgreen last night.

Following a few visits over the summer we are now down to the toughest task of digging out the most resistant roots and stumps.

Despite only having one headtorch between us (mental note- the dark nights are definitely back!) Ben Godfrey, Louise Galvin, Zena Whalley and I got busy with spades, saws and crowbar for what felt like a proper winter workout.

Lit-two-woo!

Report written by Saul Muldoon

Cold, dark and wet, not the most pleasant conditions for a little litter picking. But that didn't deter Kati Law and myself from collecting six bags of litter from around the Riverside Way this evening.

More Extreme Pruning at Christ Church

Tue 5 Oct 18:30 pm
Stadium Health & Fitness Club, Stadium Way, Huddersfield, HD1 6PG
Keeping the churchyard tidy

One of our ongoing tasks this summer has been to clear some of the overgrown vegetation in the churchyard at Christ Church Moldgreen. We returning once again to hopefully finish the job. If you are free and you fancy some heavy duty gardening simply sign up.

Following the relaxation in Covid restrictions we are now able to run to this task as a group. However in order to keep GoodGym accessible to those who do not wish or are unable to take part in the group run, there is now an option to meet at the task.

So if you are running we will convene outside the entrance to the Stadium Health & Fitness Club at 6:30pm. Please note we are not currently able to use the changing facilities, so arrive ready to run. If you are meeting us at the task you'll need to be at Christ Church Moldgreen at 7pm. We'll finish the task for 8pm and run back at the Stadium for 8:30pm.

Obviously if you can run please do so, it will be wonderful to have proper GoodGym group runs back again, but if you can't we'll see you at Christ Church.

Please note- Due to a football game taking place at the Stadium the meeting point for this session has now changed. We will meeting for the group run 6:30pm at the King's Bridge Road Car Park, HD1 3AX. Parking is free from 6pm

Paintenance

Tue 21 Sep
Report written by Saul Muldoon

The paint brushes were out in force at S2R tonight as 7 GoodGymmers, painted planters and benches to kerp the S2R yard looking good. And that was after we'd run 2.5K from the Stadium.

Well done to tonight's painters and decorators, Kati Law, Ben Godfrey, Louise Galvin, Zena Whalley, David Bilton and Richard Byrne.

Technophiles

Sat 18 Sep
Report written by Saul Muldoon

Holmfirth Tech needed some GoodGym assistance, and they got it in spades. Kati Law, Ben Godfrey, myself and a number of volunteers from the Tech spent a very productive Saturday morning clearing the Tech's car park of leaves, twigs, litter and various other detritus. We left it looking totally tidy and ready for use by the all the students over the coming weeks.
