Last night we had a classic GG task on our hands - a good ole lift n shift - where we had to move two 1000kg bags of wood chip from the upper playground to the lower play garden at Jubilee Primary.

Let's Get Physical!

Run Leader Joao met AA Yianny, Fi and Tilly at Papa's while we planned to pick up Jo on our way and then meet our two walkers Liz (great to have you back with us!) and Marie-Noelle at the school.

It was a lovely run in the evening sun and we have now pivoted from GG Book Club to summer holz recommendations - Cyprus, Canada and Crete on the list for our runners - destinations beginning with other letters are available ;0)

With a lovely 18 degrees and sunny out everything was perfect and so we divided into two groups, one preparing the playground by weeding and clearing while the other shoveled (and bucketed) wood chip into a wheelbarrow then ran it down to be dumped.

The main challenge was having large steps between the playgrounds meaning we had to carry down the wheelbarrow and large bags but after a ten or so return trips all the mulch was moved and the playground was looking much better as well as safer for the kids to play on.

Juan has plenty more for us to do so we will be back at Jubilee Primary in two week's time - sign up here to get involved:

Big thanks to all and see you next week as we visit St Faith's to see the completion of the straw hall!
