Burns N’ Roses

Brighton Report written by STEFANIA ROSSO (she/her)

What a turn out at yesterday’s GoodGym session together with the Friends of Vale Park. This is a local community in South Portslade, near Brighton, dedicated to improving Vale Park. They want it to be a place where the neighbourhood comes together, enjoys themselves, takes care of the public green space and becomes the heart of the local community.

Historically, Vale Park was a ‘Flint Pit’. In 1917 it was a quarry used for the extraction of sand and flints, and then became a dump. During the First World War the area was used as a training ground for soldiers who built bridges over the water-filled pits. At the south east corner, there was a deep pond fed by a natural spring. It seemed to be a popular place for children to play, to have some great games and excursions there, not without some incidents. Now it is a lovely park with colorful and flowering roses.

The Friends of Vale Park love their park and hope we do too. And we do!

15 GoodGym-ers cycled or ran to the park to help unbinding wonderful roses from the attack of burning nettles and other itching and stinging weeds. With extraordinary results! A great session for a belated celebration of Volunteers Week with some proper “Beerbusiness” at our follow up social gathering in the pub.

VALE PARK GARDENING GROUP is STARTING SOON. You might be interested to know that starting on Sat 28th June at 10 am, and then every LAST Saturday of the month, there will be a new Vale Park Gardening group. It’ll be a great chance to be a part of a lovely community, meet new people, do some gentle exercise in the fresh air and keep those weeds at bay in their beautiful rose beds. Good for the body, mind and soul!

The Friends of Vale Park are looking for a group name for the new Vale Park Gardening group, with “Weedy Ones” getting my vote 😊!

Edel (She/her) completed 25 good deeds with GoodGym.

Edel has already done 25 good deeds with GoodGym. Instead of doing anything else, they've used their run to go and help people that need their help; digging, lifting, scraping, clearing, planting and weeding. Stuff that makes this a better place to be.

Drizzling over Han-over

Brighton Report written by STEFANIA ROSSO (she/her)

Drizzle Drizzle Drizzle, that was yesterday weather forecast from 18:00 to 20:00.

Rainy days like this tempt us to stay indoors, snuggled up with a warm blanket and a good book. But what if we are told (by the radio, according to Edel) that there are incredible benefits to be gained by heading out into the rain for a workout? That's right – exercising in the rain can be a refreshing and invigorating experience that offers unique advantages for both your body and mind. Exercising in the rain can be a mood-enhancing experience, as the rhythmic sound of raindrops and the coolness on your skin create a calming effect.

And with this in mind, six brave GoodGym-ers joined yesterday GoodGym’s group run session with a double community mission in Hanover and Elm Grove ward. We helped Simon with painting over graffiti at the Phoenix Community Centre and nearly former pub, and others joined Cllr Tim for some litter picking and weeding action close to Wellington Road.

It was certainly a mood- and ward-enhancing experience!

Mountains of grass

Brighton Report written by STEFANIA ROSSO (she/her)

Finally, we made it! We had to cancel and reschedule this session several times due to heavy raining but yesterday evening the weather was on our side and we managed to enjoy our short run to Palmeira Square to help the Palmeira and Adelaide Garden Group to strengthen their community through the gardens, with each volunteer and every event. One blue bag (of green waste) at a time.

We did a green ‘clean and clear’ mission, by “combing” the freshly cut grass from the whole area of the gardens for an hour or so together with Stuart, Adrian, local volunteers and some curious visitors who step up to join the mission spontaneously, or just to play with us for a bit … why not? We bagged 5 big bags of green waste, at least.
Time flew quickly and leaving no room for a follow up fitness session, but the hard work made it up for it!

Before leaving, Stuart invited us to join his birthday garden party on the 8th of June!

Muffin Can Stop Us Cleaning

Brighton Report written by Michael Pirrie

Tonight twelve runners took the short run to one of our favourite local tasks. Why our favourite? Well it definitely has nothing to do with the free cakes on offer! We've been going to the Community Kitchen run by the Brighton and Hove Food Partnership since the kitchen began and they are always ready with some great cleaning tasks to get the kitchen ready for classes.

Amaryllis and Rosie set to the tough but rewarding job of bringing the ovens back to life, it was a grease ridden nightmare but they made them look fantastic by the end.

Jane started the evening in horror at the scale of mis matched utensils in cupboards, after calming down she soon made light work of the mess!

Fresh from their Worthing half-marathon heroics Angela and Ben polished up the dining table and chairs.

The rest of us busied ourselves with general cleaning around the kitchen until the whole place was sparkling! For all our hard work we were rewarded with some amazing cakes.

It was lovely to see some old faces tonight and big thank you to Frances for sharing the tasks around us all.
