Gardening and litter picking at Left Bank Leeds

Wed 2 Feb 17:30 pm
Hyde Park Book Club, Leeds, LS6 1BL
Weeding and removing rubbish to keep the area clean and enjoyable

We've been asked to head over to Left Bank to 1) weed their gardens, and 2) check the Cardigan Road area, around Left Bank, and collect any litter that we see. We will split into two groups, and each will spend 20-30 minutes on each task.

We will be provided with gardening equipment, but if you have a trowel and gardening gloves bring them along. For the litter picking aspect, we have lots of litter pickers and purple bags, and our aim will be to clear as much as we can in the time we have available.

Please wear reflective clothing, a head/body torch and wear gloves if you have them.

For those that want to run/ cycle to the task, we will meet at Hyde Park Book Club at 5:30. It is about 3km to Left Bank from there. If you'd rather meet at the task, head straight to Left Bank, ready to start the task at 6. Please let me know when you sign up whether you will head straight to Left Bank or will meet at HPBC.

Tackling the mud mountain at West Bank Park

Mon 31 Jan 18:15 pm
York CVS, Denham Room, 15 Priory Street , York , YO1 6ET
Continuing our work to help improve this park for everyone to use

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.

🚲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 tonight to help the Council Environment team. They've asked for our help to tidy up the area, particularly focussing on the mud mountain, to make it a more pleasant environment for everyone who uses it.

THE TASK 🧤 As we'll be doing various tidy up tasks in the gardens, please bring gardening gloves and a headtorch if possible.

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 West Bank Park (2km each way). Walkers may need to leave at 6:25pm 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 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 rules-pending, obviously). Please join us!

Getting Fitter by Picking Litter

Tue 18 Jan
Report written by Saul Muldoon

We got fitter by picking litter again tonight, bags and bags of the stuff collected from around Aspley and Longley Woods.

Well done Kati Law, Louise Galvin, David Bilton and Tom Elcock, you've certainly left Huddersfield looking a little tidier tonight.

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

GoodGym group runs are back for 2022 and we're starting the year with a spot of plogging.

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.
