Our final Richmond Furniture Scheme visit of 2023 saw seven Goodgymers ready for hammer time.

First and foremost we welcomed Cliff, who was attending his ever good gym session!

RFS then subsequently assigned us with the task of disassembling the sofas that were used originally by the Whitton Social Club, previously based at the RFS building.

RFS wanted to recycle some of the wood from the furniture to see if it could be used for future items.

Luckily we were able to use RFS’s workshop that included numerous saws and hammers.

The sofas proved to be very well put together, but fortunately, however, both Beth and Anita showed they were not to be messed with when it comes to using saws and hammers!

JP, meanwhile, was also up for hammer time as he proved his worth when it came to breaking down the furniture, while Chris found time to name the Magnetic sweeper as his tool of the year!

Overall, a job well done!
