7 Barnsley GoodGymmers met up on this splendid evening to help the Friends of Locke Park with some maintenance.

A few of us met early for a socially-distanced walk around the park (too hot to run this evening!), then we all met up together with the Friends of Locke Park for some maintenance of the sand pit. After a good day's play by the local children, the sand often needs sweeping back into the pit ready to be enjoyed the next day. Using the big brushes counted as our arm workout for the evening. There were a few spots of litter around so a good spot of litter-picking was done too.

It was one of our biggest get-togethers since lockdown and it was lovely to start catching up in person.
