Providing some lumbar support at Heeley City Farm

Mon 11 Oct
Report written by Tom Mutton

WHAT A TASK we had this week!

It had it all;

  • Sledgehammers
  • Logs
  • Lights
  • Hills
  • Goats
  • Cereal!

We met with the lovely Julie of Heeley City Farm (HCF) who let us into this gem of a place and through the site to the field we would be working in past all of the very cute goats.

HCF have had to have some trees on site felled and the larger logs needed splitting, bagging and shifting so that they can be dried and sold in the future to bring some income into the site which doesn't have any monetary support from the Council and needs to be self sustaining so this was a great way for us to help out.

We got straight to it, splitting.... into smaller teams:

  • Log splitters - 'I wanna be... your sledgehammer!'
  • Assistant log splitters - putting in the 'grenade' splitters into the logs to get them started
  • Log sorters
  • Log baggers
  • Log movers
  • Log shakers (ok, made this one up)
  • Goat petters

We certainly expended some energy and shed some timber on this task! It was great to be out in the night air, a great remedy to any splitting headaches...At times it was hard to see the wood from the trees, but in the end we were told we had made up 24 bags which was a great effort!

After finishing we made great use of the well lit traffic free hill outside for some hill reps in teams where we did 4 reps of:

40% 60% 80% 110% (as the Americans say)

We had a steady saunter back before stretching off and making birthday plans (see listings on website).

Until next time, happy running! :)

Lumberjack work for Heeley City Farm (HCF)

Mon 11 Oct 18:30 pm
Showroom Cinema , 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield, S1 2BX
We will be chopping logs to allow them to dry out. HCF will sell them and hopefully make some much needed income to go back into the site!

HCF have just had several large trees cut down due to disease, these have been logged but need splitting - HCF have invested in log splitters (so no sharp axes!) and some sledge hammers!

Once split, the logs can then be placed in sacks and wheel-barrowed to the log store, so lots of tasks to keep a big group busy! Lifting, rolling logs, log splitting, bagging up and barrowing.

Safety googles will be provided by Julie for those using the sledghammers and those nearby to ensure eyes are safe.

Please bring your own gloves.
