Oxford Report written by Anwen Greenaway
A final (for this season) evening at Oxford Mutual Aid food bank doing our flash mob cleaning.
Since the autumn we've worked our way around every inch of the food bank cleaning areas which rarely get any attention. We've moved stock, crates, and shelving. Swept, bleached, mopped, and then figured out the giant tetris of how to put it all back. We've cleaned the kitchen monthly, including taking out kilos of food waste and scrubbing the fridges, walls and floors. We've restacked storage, loaded deliveries, packed Christmas gifts, and cleaned dozens of delivery crates (prising them apart when necessary!).
It's taken 5 months, but WE DID IT!

𝗘𝘃𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝟭𝟬𝟵 – 𝗠𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝘀' 𝗗𝗮𝘆 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗸𝗿𝘂𝗻 💐 It was a true family affair at Florence Park juniors today 👪 We counted 21 sets of siblings in the results and lots of wonderful mums (and dads!) supported their juniors round the course 🙌 Team Frost joined us in hi-vis too, with mum Andrea and daughter Meredith donning the orange Tail Walker vests 🦺 Thank you and well done to everyone who joined us! Here are some highlights from the event, starting with a flying feet-filled photo album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZMxMn4HJWUJeFfGu7 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗸𝗿𝘂𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗿𝘀: 78 juniors kicked off Mothers' Day with two laps of our lovely local park 🌳 𝗙𝗶𝗿𝘀𝘁 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲𝗿𝘀: 3 juniors completed their very first junior parkrun Welcome to the parkrun family! 𝗣𝗕𝘀: 23 juniors achieved new personal best times. Great walking and running juniors! 𝗠𝗶𝗹𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘀: Four! Congratulations to... 🫐 Dexter and Linkai - Half maration (11 junior parkruns) 🍏 Holly - Marathon (21 junior parkruns) 🍊 Isabella - Ultra marathon (50 junior parkruns) Don't forget to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if your junior is due to receive a wristband - we'll add them to our list to present when you next pay us a visit 📥 𝗪𝗮𝗿𝗺-𝘂𝗽: Trev was today's Run Director and warm-up leader, and when Trev announced a reprise of his parkrun Cokey, there was an audible "Yay!" from the crowd 😁 We formed a circle - not hard given the geometry of our start/finish area - and within a few lines everyone was singing, shaking, spinning, and cokeying along 𝗩𝗼𝗹𝘂𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗲𝗿𝘀: 21 wonderful volunteers made event 108 happen 🧡 Thanks to each and every one of you for your support. 😊 Megan joined us from our friends at Goodgym for her parkrun volunteer debut. Thank you so much for your support Megan – we hope you enjoyed the morning! 📲 Whilst mother and daughter tailwalked, father and son, Elliot and Rob scanned barcodes at the finish. A real family effort – thanks so much Team Frost! 🌳 Justin joined us at Florence Park for the first time, although this was far from Justin's first time volunteering at parkrun. Justin is a Run Director at Buckingham junior parkrun and has volunteered over 160 times! Thanks so much for paying us a visit Justin 🙂 🦺 Junior Hugo usually runs on a Sunday morning but today he earned his first every parkrun volunteer credit as a marshal with his dad, regular volunteer Daniel. Another fabulous family effort from our wonderful parkrun community. As always, we appreciate any level of support – from weekly volunteering to just a one-off ☺️ Our events wouldn't happen without our hi-vis heroes! If you'd like to learn more or get involved, drop us an email at email@example.com Thank you for your support! #loveparkrun

Thanks to everyone who helped out from GG here is the Run Report <3
University parks parkrun Event #57 was another big one!
👋 513 runners and walkers complete the course. 147 of you were first timers to University Parks and 33 were first ever parkrun! Welcome all of you, Lots of you got BPs too 🌳Jess Buttigieg completed her 52nd different parkrun in a row today, making a year of parkrun tourism! Jess started her parkrun journey at the age of 18 in Australia and has clocked up a total of 242 parkruns! Follow her on instagram @parkrunnerjess 🥕Hello also to our vegan runner friends, who regularly run parkruns but today had a meet up at University Parks we hope you enjoyed it here! Also a shout out to Magdalen college school who brought a big group of kids, teenagers and staff to run, well done 👋 Welcome Ellie, who started her volunteer role with Mind at Parkrun today. She’ll be there to welcome service users who’ve been referred by Mind and to help signpost park runners to Mind services and support in Oxfordshire! Do go and say hi to her next time. Find out more www.oxfordshiremind.org.uk 🤩Thanks to all our volunteers this week, including support from GoodGym you are all amazing! If you would like to volunteer next week or in the future we always need more people, and many roles like bar code scanning can be done if you are a speedy runner as well as running in the event!
🌳Double Funnel – Thank you to everyone who is getting used to our double funnel, now we regularly have so many runners this is our normal, so if you are lucky enough to get a letter A,B,C, etc please hold it with pride as you start a new row of people!
🦆Thanks to everyone who helped with funnel duckers! These are people who enter the funnel and duck out (no quacking idea why?! sometimes to collect something like a coat, and sometimes because they don’t understand the format, there is plenty of time after you exit the funnel).. its really important once you enter the funnel to stay in it and get a token at the other end otherwise the times go wrong (and not just yours!), so if you don’t want to finish then please don’t enter the funnel, if you do want to complete the run make sure you follow it through! Thank you!
🏃🏾♀️Speedy runners – A reminder that we do not have priority over other park users, so although we love your speed, PLEASE watch out you do not knock anyone when overtaking, or indeed people who are in the park anyway. We understand on the second lap you will want to overtake slower walkers and runners but please do this with as much care and space as you can.
🌳Tokens – we had a fair few of you take tokens home this week 😭 please don’t do that! They live in the bucket at the end. If you have taken one by mistake please do bring it back next week. I you haven’t got a bar code but take a token don’t worry just put it in the bucket at the end Hope you all have a great weekend and see you again soon Report written by Run Director Trev 🌳 #loveparkrun

Donning buoyancy aids and a can(oe)-do attitude, a group of GoodGymmers teamed up with Falcon Boat Club to undertake a river litter pick along the Cherwell and Thames as part of OxClean's 2023 Spring Clean.
