Today 6 runners from both GoodGym Newham and Tower Hamlets headed back to Manorfield Primary School for our second community mission there in April. This week we were continuing the work started earlier in the month, with one team dismantling a second planter at the front of the school and carefully uprooting a tree so that it can be replanted in future. Meanwhile Paul and Paula tackled more of the donated water pallets ready for collection by local community partners. Several wheelbarrow trips later, and with the help of a vast range of tools kindly sourced by Lorraine at the school, we successfully shifted soil, planter planks, compost waste, water bottles and trees to their respective destinations around the school grounds. Good work team and hopefully we’ll be back for more Manorfield tasks very soon!
