Creating green spaces at the Women's Hospital

Mon 24 Jan 18:30 pm
‘’A case history’ by John King , Hope street , Liverpool , L1 9BQ
Improving the environment for patients, staff and visitors

Welcome to GoodGym Liverpool

We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every Monday evening to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations and projects across the Liverpool City Region.

Most Group Runs will be lead one of our fabulous volunteer qualified Run Leaders, but watch out for ones listed as 'Social Runs' as this means no Run Leader is present but we still go out and run together keeping our 'no one left beind' GoodGym vibe in place!

The Task

We'll be picking up from where we left of on our last visit to the Women's Hospital back in September. We'll be creating spaces around the trees to plant wild flowers.

The Run

We'll be meeting at the Suitcases on Hope Street for a warm up and a run (with walk option) to the task. What 3 Words meet up link

This one is also really good for those new to running or not yet ready for the longer runs. The task is less than a mile away from our meet up point on Hope Street, and the run will weave though the streets, with a stop off in Falkner Square Gardens for a brief fitness session before arriving at the Women's ready for the task, making it roughly 2k each way.

With the evenings still darker we advise you to dig out those hi viz clothes and head/chest torches if you have one! Run Safe.

If you prefer the walk option, or would rather meet us at the venue either leave a comment below or message Ema via our whatsapp group or email (ema@goodgym.org)

Another drizzly Thursday in Liverpool

Thu 9 Dec
Report written by Sophie McClellan

When the original task owner pulled out because of illness, it would have been easy to do nothing and stay warm and dry on the couch. Instead, we planned a run around the rather lovely Sefton park.

For a couple of us, the universe had other plans and by the time we got to 18:30, there were only two of us meeting at the Obelisk!

However, joined by Toby the trusty spaniel, myself and Jo battled through the rain and the dark and made it round in brilliant time. The company was great and we didn't even get too wet! I am looking forward to the next one!

Another chance for a run around Sefton Park before Christmas is upon us

Thu 9 Dec 18:30 pm
Sefton Park Obelisk, Aighburth Drive, Liverpool, L17 1AP
Enjoy a longer run together round one of our beautiful parks

We loved our evening run around Sefton Park so much we're doing it again! The park is a beautiful place to run around the outside ring of an evening and is always bustling with people going for runs so the energy has a buzz in the air.

//Join us for 4K or 8K circuit of Sefton Park, one lap or two it's up to you!

And as always there will also be a walking option through the meandering pathways, trees and lakeside if you prefer!
Please let Ema know in advance if you would prefer the walking option so this can be planned too

Everyone is welcome and we will have a back marker so no one is left behind.

As the nights are dark we advise everyone to wear some hi vis running gear, and bring a head or chest torch too, the pathways can often have leaves on them and may be muddy and slippy in places so do wear appropriate running shoes!

Meeting point is at the Obelisk on Aighburth Drive. What 3 Words location link

Fency meeting you here!

Thu 25 Nov
Report written by John Connaghan

A band of 8 merry Goodgymers came together, some at speed from Hope Street, some from across the road, some by hour and a half bus journey and all in good spirits.

Why were we in good spirits? Because we knew the importance of Sunflowers, the great work they do to support those with cancer and their families and it’s great to help those who help others. Our task was to clear furniture and to tidy the area at the side of the building so that they can host a Christmas party this weekend.

With pivots, squats and contortion the first task of moving a heavy bench out of the way was sorted. Next up was more team lifting of large fence panels. Thank you Roz for the pun! With shovels and spades, Jess, Jo, Roz and Heetu cleared the soil from the ugly storage sack and filled up the plant beds. Steph and Chris cleared the ground so it was clean underfoot for the party goers.

With the tasks completed in no time, an impromptu weeding session started as we hadn’t expended enough energy just yet. The extra work tidied up an area staff use on their breaks.

With promises of painting tasks for us no doubt we’ll be meeting Bobby soon again. In the meantime keep in mind the upcoming Birkenhead parkrun and task in early December.

Well done for coming out in the cold and helping a great charity

Making a space Christmas Fair ready!

Sprucing up an outdoor space for Sunflowers

Welcome to GoodGym Liverpool

We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every week to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations and projects across the Liverpool City Region.

The Task

Liverpool Sunflowers are a charity providing a range of support services for individuals and families dealing with a cancer diagnosis.

At the end of November they will be holding a Christmas Fair and need some help cleaning up a small outdoor space ready for some stalls. The space needs a little weeding between the flag stones, moving of garden furniture and some general sweeping and cleaning.

The area has some overhead cover and is well lit, with access to toilets. We've even been promised a cuppa!

The Run

We'll be meeting at the Suitcases on Hope Street for a warm up and a 3K run (with walk option) to the task. What 3 Words meet up link

Now evenings are getting darker we advise you to dig out those hi viz clothes and head/chest torches if you have one! Run Safe.

If you prefer the walk option, or would rather meet us at the venue either leave a comment below or message Ema via our whatsapp group or email (ema@goodgym.org)
