Shear Madness

Luton Report written by David Mansfield

A small team this week as people couldn't be persuaded to get involved with a bramble patch in the dark for some reason 🤔

Well they missed out because after a run up the gentle hill to Dallow Downs, we four armed ourselves with tools from the Ferndale Allotment and then went into battle with the brambles, emerging victorious after 45 minutes of chopping and slicing the prickly foe.

In the process we discovered a few treasures discarded some years ago and then enveloped by the thorny thicket, including a Dyson vacuum cleaner, toy pram, part of a lawn mower and a portrait of an old Hollywood movie star that we couldn't quite identify.

With two giant bags of thorns packed and a pile of rubbish left for collection in the morning we set off back into town via a brief stop in Brantwood park for a resistance band leg strengthening workout.

Running Club take Tub2Pub

Luton Report written by Gill (She/her)

On Saturday 13th January 6th, after Parkrun, David , Gill , Martin, Dani , Duncan and Laura made their way up the hill from Wardown Park to The Biscot Mill pub to deliver their donations for the Tub2Pub campaign. There was lots of discussion about who had eaten the contents of the tubs, but obviously it couldn’t possibly have been them. ;-) The bar staff were pleased to relieve them of the tubs, which will be shredded, sold for recycling with the proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Care.

Then on Sunday 14th January 3 more GoodGymers made their way to the Jolly Topers after an afternoon of litter picking on Stopsley Common. Yasin, Julius and Ehsan enjoyed eating a few of the last few Quality Street from the bottom of one of the tubs before handing the tubs over to the bar staff. Meanwhile Miriam had headed to Harpenden with her tub and handed it over at The Old Bell.

On Wednesday 17th January Ella completed a solo Visit to The Ewe and Lambs with her empty Quality Street Tub and deposited on the bar. She had a chilly walk there and back but racked up another 5km towards our January total. Neil then braved the cold, wrapped up in his duvet coat on Thursday the 18th, and made his way to The Anchor in Bedford where they took charge of another empty Heroes container.

Lizzy had been biding her time to take 2 Celebrations Tubs and a Roses tub to The Bumble Bee at Flitwick on the 21st. Hope she didn’t eat all the chocs by herself 😃 although with all the cycling she’s been doing she probably needs the energy!

Crate Expectations

Luton Report written by David Mansfield

This week's group run didn't take us very far as the destination was just a few metres from our starting point.

The team went on a run through the town centre and back again to get warmed up for a challenging task.

We arrived at Azalea and were greeted by Gus who had our task waiting. The basement room was full of boxes that needed moving up two flights of stairs and stacked chairs that needed moving up three flights of stairs. The basement had previously been flooded and the whole room needed the builders in to strip out all the moldy plasterboard and make it good again.

The team worked well getting all the boxes out and upstairs, stacked neatly away in a small room, leaving plenty of space in the basement for the much needed work to commence.

To round off our evening of leg work we had a go at the Moby squat challenge and despite some complaints everyone survived with quads intact!

If You Go Down in The Woods Today...

Luton Report written by Gill (She/her)

If you went down in the woods today, you sure of a big surprise,

If you went down in the woods today you'd probably meet these guys,

And all the litter that there was

Was gathered up without any pause,

Today's the day the GoodGymmers went to Stopsley.

🌳🌳🌳

Every GoodGymmer who's been good was sure of a treat today.

Lots of empty tins of beer were hidden behind the hay

Beneath the trees where nobody sees,

They poked about on bended knees,

And even found some time to take a quick pic.

🌳🌳🌳

Litter pick time for GoodGymmers

Yasin and Julius were having a lovely time today.

Welcoming our new recruit

Sophia joined us and we all said Yay!

Duncan threw some cans about

Ehsan bought a meter out

And Gill found an old green chair

At 3 o'clock, our Dani and Marti

Then took us to the hedge

And with our bags full they gave us spares.

🌳🌳🌳

If you go down in the woods today, you won't even have to moan.

If you go down in the woods today there will be no litter thrown.

For GoodGymmers don't need no applause

They cleaned it up for certain because

Today's the day the Goodgymers did their litter-pick.

🌳🌳🌳

🎉Congratulations Sophia for your first GoodGym task. 🎉 We hope to see you again soon.

(Apologies to Martin whose name I had to shorten to get it to scan).

A strong turnout on a cold morning for our first Parkrun takeover of 2024. It may have been cold but the GoodGym January challenge is heating up. We’re racking up the good deeds and the miles! Big momentum for the second half of the month!
