A top crew of early rising Goodgym folk joined Area Activator Simon and Frannie from Octopus Community Network for a quick mini mission at Highbury Quadrant Estate.

A large order of timber beams were due to be delivered just by Highbury New Road for 8am on the dot, and we wanted to be on hand to help with shifting them all to a new location.

Unfortunately, the delivery was delayed by over an hour, so our team decided to sweep and rake up the surrounding area (including the new site for these vegetable planters) while we were waiting. As the large freight truck arrived, our Goodgym volunteers got right to work with unloading the supplies, and we easily cleared the decks within 10 minutes between us. Many hands made light work! Well done everyone!
