Follow the yellow skip road
4 GoodGymers made their way to help the City of York Council and West Bank Park in York.

An unexpectedly dry evening!
Confusingly for those who haven't been to this task before, instead of filling a skip, our task was instead to empty it, but of lovely compost (made from the contents of York green bins I believe).
To avoid messing up the very boggy grass with our barrows, Kristina had sourced a kitchen's worth of cardboard packaging which we used to make our very own yellow(ish) skip road, avoiding the steps and up the little slope to the lovely new flowerbeds-to-be.
Ed and then Michal did a sterling job of skip diving for compost and filling up our barrows, while the rest of us hi-vis heroes trotted our barrows up and down. Soon enough our hour was up and we headed into the night for our teas. Plenty left for the next team tomorrow!
