🦢 Swan rake 🧹

York Report written by Nicky Woodall

💫30 fantastic GoodGymmers came out on a cool but clear starry night for our final group run of January. Having beaten both our good deeds and distance targets for the January Challenge, we were keen to see if we could get to 500 good deeds, and we’re getting SO close, it’s pretty nail-biting stuff 😬

👋 We were thrilled to welcome Grace and Benjamin for their first GoodGym session. We hope you enjoyed it and would love to see you back if you did 😁

☕️ Our walking group set off for Rowntree Park while we warmed up, lunging/running round the circle while saying our GoodGym highlight of January. Lots of love for all the food and socialising that’s accompanied many of the tasks, and also brilliant to hear from people who have joined (or rejoined!) during January 🙌

➗We split into two groups with Mitch leading half the gang to Back Park. Here’s what he had to say about what they got up to…

🍂 We arrived at Back Park and were tasked with clearing the grounds of all the leaves. With a wide assortment of tools (including the leaf scraper which was amazing!) We quickly filled 10 bags 💪

🗯️ Quote of the night from this gang - "I come with a lot of baggage".

🏃‍♀️🚶🚲The rest of us ran/walked/cycled to Rowntree Park where we were met by Jenny and a list of tasks. We split into different teams, doing various tasks all over the park.

🌳 We had tree-moving teams, shifting a very heavy tree in a pot to a different part of the park (and only discovering afterwards that we weren’t using the trolley to its full helpfulness). The other part of Team Tree were digging up a tree. This was quite the manual labour, requiring much muscle and exertion but also skill to work out where the roots were that still needed cutting.

🌊 Meanwhile, we had a couple of groups on path-clearing, making sure the paths were clear and not slippery, following the recent floods. After some discussion of where the debris should go, sensible homes were found for it and it was distributed. There was also some discussion about if/where/how ducks and swans sleep, after seeing a fair few still bobbing along on the water, even at this time 🦢

🌲 The final Rowntree group started off clearing the top path (by the cafe) of debris then moved onto some topiary, cutting back bushes and considering potential shapes to mould them into. They looked great and there was still a hint of an elephant to one of them at the end (if only there was a GoodGym topiary badge…) 🐘

📸 After failing to drag Team Tree from their task, we posed for a (not-quite-complete) group photo. We heard a cheer while heading back to fetch them and were able to see their felled (by digging) tree, alongside some rosy faces and cheery smiles ☺️

🌟 It was time to make our way back to base where we did some celebratory fitness, featuring sprints and star-shaped exercises.

🍻 And then it was time to stretch and part ways, some to the pub and some off home.

👏 Thank you for some brilliant work tonight everyone, we’re SO close to 500 good deeds now so if anyone’s free to join the final task tomorrow evening to help us get there, we’d love to see you 🙏

*Credit to Cara for the pun 🤣

Broom! Rake Rake Rake the room

York Report written by Ed

A rather sizeable GG contingent who were taking on the Dalby Head Torch race, plus a few who weren't, headed out the fab play area at the excellent Dalby Forest for a spot of bark chip raking

A few late-comers who were delayed by a forgotten head torch (classic mitch!) took on the leaves that had built up on the glorious Dalby cafe patio.

After 45 mins of "work" and after a few murmurs of Ed just getting GG to do the work of his team at Dalby, we were soon ready to down tools and get ready for the epic head torch challenge in North Yorkshire's finest outdoor recreational facilities

Good times had by all

Marshalling the Monkeys 🙈

York Report written by Barbara Griffin

A fabulous bunch of GG Yorkies helped local running club Knavesmire Harriers put on their 40th anniversary Brass Monkey half marathon. This is their flagship event and has become one of the most popular races in the North of England, with places selling out within minutes!

Some of our crew helped out at Race HQ, some were at the start/finish and others out marshaling on the course. We were grateful for the sunshine and no rain or risk of ice. Several other GG Yorkies ran the event and were cheered on enthusiastically by their fellow GG pals with some fantastic running and some shiny new PBs.

The race organisers have asked me to pass on their huge thanks to everyone who helped today - especially as they were missing a couple of marshals. I hope you all managed to get your t-shirts, buffs and chocolate!

parkrun Birthday Heroes

York Report written by Nick Griffin

Eleven wonderful GG Yorkies got up bright and early to help the York Knavesmire parkrun once again. A variety of roles were filled, from marshaling to pacing and everything in between.

Several were off to their next mission straight after (some doing a whopping 4 good deeds today 💪 ) but some of us just went to the pub for breakfast 🍳
