Shout out to Liz for coming up with the pun! I hope it's a reference to our military precision, rather than me being a bossy dictator during the task!

An excellent group of GoodGymers met on a Saturday afternoon to clear away gazebos after a charity fundraiser in Stoke Newington. Abney Park Trust hosted an Autumn Fayre to fundraise for the activities in the park, and after a busy day needed some help packing down the twelve gazebos.

Liz, Latoya, Frank and Eva were just deconstructing the first gazebo when we bumped into Emily who happened to be walking in the park. As a fellow GoodGymer and big fan of Abney, she jumped in to join us on the mission and help with the task!

The team soon stepped into a good system for gazebo clearance, with twelve gazebos all packed up and put away within an hour!

For all of the GoodGymers it was their second mission of the day, so when the Abney team bought out some cakes from the cake stall, it was a welcome treat!
