On a warm September evening, five GoodGymers returned to the river side to finish off what they started the previous week at the St.Helena Boathouse.

Under the supervision of task owner Trevor, the team were working on sanding down the Iroko wooden doors of the boathouse before applying a coat of varnish to help maintain their condition.

It did,however, prove to be a bit of tall order for the GoodGymers, with the top of the door's proving at times tough to reach but this was overcome by sheer determination and perseverance.

Overall it was a job well done and you could certainly notice the hard work that both teams put in on the doors as a whole!
