Hammer-time on the decks

It was a pleasure to get out to the boat yards in Brightlingsea this morning. We were met by the beaming smile of Felicity who manages the Pioneer Sailing Trust and a familiar face as Alison from Level Best got stuck in too. Our tasks were both familiar and new. Whilst Emily, Alison, Felicity and I weeded along the boathouse, Ella, Ros, Naomi and Phil went to hammer away the tar coating on the deck on board the historic Pioneer. Once the weeders were done we moved inside to sand down the hull of one of the sailing trusts rigs which they build and sell. We did look a little like smurfs afterwards due the the blue paint.
Felicity was very pleased with the progress made on a necessary job after a busy and strange summer of trips.
A big thank you to the Pioneer Sailing Trust for what they do to help people in the local area. A task that highlights a great partnership and how satisfying working and volunteering at goodgym is. There is a job going for thr Area Activator to come in and help Goodgym to help others.
