Tree movers required - goodgym provide nine!

Having spent Monday evening clearing fallen leaves at Danson Youth Centre, our next task also had an horticultural feel about.

A tree-mendous task awaited us, one that we had been pine-ing for at the Erith Xmas Tree Festival.

Some of us took part in the Bexley parkrun before heading across to Erith. We were joined by Sarah and Johnny from GoodGym Hammersmith & Fulham and we quickly set about the task in hand.

It involved moving 80 Xmas trees from inside the church, setting them in stands and moving them back inside to pre-designated positions around the church. All had been completed in about an hour and we got an oak-ay from the organiser. If there were any in excess of 80 we might have been sycamore trees.

GoodGym Bexley have sponsored a tree this year through donations which will be decorated on Thursday.

The Erith Christmas Tree Festival will run from Friday to Sunday next week.
