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.

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

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

Yard Clearing, Painting and Planting

Tue 21 Sep 18:30 pm
Stadium Health & Fitness Club, Stadium Way, Huddersfield, HD1 6PG
Keeping S2R looking lovely

We off to our old friends at S2R to help them out once again with clearing up their cobbled yard, to make it tidy and safe for all the users of their centre. They'll be weeding to do, a little bit of painting and perhaps some planters to fill. There's plenty to keep us busy so we'll be doing two consecutive sessions on Tuesdays 14th and 21st of September to get it all done.

As usual we'll be meeting at the Stadium for the group run at 6:30pm, alternatively if you're not able to run there you can meet us at S2R (5-7 Brook Street, Huddersfield, HD1 1EB) at 7pm.

Stormin Norman

Tue 20 Jul
Report written by Saul Muldoon

We had a last minute change of task tonight. Somebody had been busy with their secateurs and beaten us to our planned task of clearing a footpath at Middlemost Ponds. But no matter Byron from The Great Outdoors project had an alternative task in nearby Norman Park.

But before any tasking was done we had the novel experience of a our first run in well over a year on what was without a doubt the hottest day of the year. We took it easy, but it was definitely good to be running as a group again.

On arriving at Norman Park Byron soon had us labouring, David Bilton and myself picking litter whilst Kati Law, Ben Godfrey, Zena Whalley and Alison Cottam were kept busy weeding and planting around the war memorial.

An hour later we were done, the litter was picked, plants were planted and Norman Park was looking just that little bit better as a result and we were ready for the run back….well done all!
