A drab evening in Barnsley was spruced up by a sprightly sprint up to Locke Park. Once at the park we accessed the shed near the sculptures and murals to retrieve some tools for a spot of grounds maintenance . The plan was to walk around the park inspecting beds and removing litter as needed. Armed with some bags, pickers and a trowel incase we saw any weeds, we skillfully circumnavigated the park. The darkness of the 'parkmess' made this task even more challenging!

Two whole bags of litter were picked in and around the park, and a couple of pesky weeds that really stood out to us in one of the beds were pulled up too. After around 50 minutes in the park it was time to call it a day. A fitness activity was forgone, with it being agreed that the run up to the park at some pace was enough of a workout alongside the pick itself. Patting ourselves on the back we trotted back down the hill to Glasshouse to stretch off.
