8 intrepid Goodgymmers were grateful for a break in the wet weather spell we're having as they visited Tottenham Green for a chilly evening of fun and shenanigans.

Tottenham HotSpuds

It was clear skies and a chilly breeze for our Goddgymmers as we completed a 4k-ish run to the task.

Laura, from Friends of Tottenham Green, had left some litter picking paraphernalia ready for us so upon arrival, we litter picked to our heart's content. Most notable incidents at this stage were the skulk of foxes playing the Green, and the massive random potato that Becca found - you've never seen anyone happier to find a "pointy potato" in your life. Who am I to judge?

Laura then arrived within ten minutes and set us to work on clearing the pathways around the Church's grounds.

There was some sweeping, some weeding, some cutting, some amateur barbershop antics, and some seed collecting - a veritable hive of activity. We left the Green looking lush for the resident fox family.

Then, just after 8pm as Nurjehan helpfully - forcefully, even - pointed out, we stopped and gathered all tools. We then proceeded to have cake and sticky rainbow laces to celebrate our wonderful Kapil and Sam who, like good wine, have gained another year of sweet maturity.

We then said our goodbyes and set off into the night. Fun times.

Join Femi at the Haringey Foodbank this Saturday! And tune in for more fun and games, next week...
