After a short warm up (yes it's getting chilly now) four Good Gymers Beattie, Rachel, Yesika and Moya made our way down the mean streets of East Finchley to Martin Primary School to get well stuck into a very large pile of fresh woodchips that needed spreading at their forest school. The caretaker John explained that we needed to get the pathway covered so we loaded up the wheelbarrow and wheelie bin and began work by the torchlight and soon got into the swing of things. We hear that a very special guest in a red suit and white beard might be visiting the forest school soon, so it had to look its finest. This was Yesika's first visit to the school, and she proved a dab hand with the rake, making swift and neat work on the long and winding path through the orchard. In the end we shifted the whole pile, and even had a bit left to go under the hammock. Shame we couldn't lie in it - it was time for a short run back to the Phoenix for our wind down. Thanks ladies!
