๐ŸฆŽ Weโ€™re not newt to this ๐Ÿฆ”

York Report written by Nicky Woodall (she/her)

๐Ÿ˜ 19 epic GoodGymmers met for our group run this evening - our last in the dark for a while ๐Ÿฅณ

๐Ÿฆธโ€โ™€๏ธIn addition to that joyous news, we also had two heroes to celebrate - tonight was Abigail's 50th good deed, and Vicky recently did her 300th! Huge congratulations guys ๐Ÿ’ช

๐Ÿ In honour of National Ravioli Day, we named and numbered off whilst declaring our favourite pasta dish. There was a lot of love for lasagne along with the classic spag bol, macaroni cheese and spaghetti hoops on toast ๐Ÿž

๐ŸšธWe were returning to Park Grove Primary School this evening, to continue helping them with their wildlife area. Superhero Vicky met us there and gave us instructions. There was sawing, lopping, digging and transporting of various branches etc, alongside the careful vetting process of whether or not they were suitable den-building material ๐ŸŒณ

๐Ÿซข At one point, Vicky was heard to say:

Iโ€™ve got a slimy wet stick between my legs

๐Ÿธ A certain crew were based around the pond, on frog/newt-watch. Neville and (Sidney?) newts were identified, along with their froggy pals, which was lovely. On our way out, a hedgehog was also spotted, which topped off our evening and gave us a feel-good boost for the work weโ€™ve been doing there ๐Ÿฆ”

๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸƒIt was soon time for some meet and retreat-based fitness before heading back to base (or mostly the pub).

๐Ÿ™Œ Thank you everyone, brilliant work this evening.

๐Ÿชจ Limestone cowboys ๐Ÿค 

York Report written by Nicky Woodall (she/her)

๐ŸŒง๏ธ 14 dedicated GoodGymmer heroes braved the less-than-ideal weather for a long run to our session tonight ๐Ÿ’ช

๐Ÿฆธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฆธโ€ Speaking of heroes, it was Vicky's 300th good deed and Mitch's 400th. Mitch had the cape tonight and itโ€™ll be Vickyโ€™s turn next week. Amazing stuff, well done guys ๐Ÿ‘

๐Ÿฅณ It being a longer run, Vicky led a party pace group off early for a muddy run over Hob Moor. These guys were swiftly followed by Michal and his gang who also went over Hob Moor and then via Foxwood Community Centre to collect the tools ๐Ÿงน

๐Ÿ‘ฃ We all gathered by a very muddy footpath, soon to be made less muddy with our footpath-building skills! We quickly got to work to get warm, shovelling rubble into wheelbarrows to be run over to the path. Stationed at the path and brandishing rakes were Claire and Jenna, ready to smooth the newly-laid path, and measure (by eye) an approximate 10cm depth ๐Ÿ“

๐Ÿ™Œ Many barrows were wheeled and much material spread, making great progress given the short amount of time available. It was soon time to head back to base, with Vicky and the gang doing party pace and Michal following, via the community centre to drop the tools off.

๐Ÿฅถ Once back at base, it was time to stretch off, dry off and warm up (some heading home for a bath, others to the pub for a pint).

๐Ÿ‘ Thank you so much everyone for some incredible work in not-so-desirable conditions. Weโ€™re heading back to continue work on the path in a few weeks so keep your fingers crossed for better weather ๐Ÿคž
