11 brilliant GoodGymmers gathered on a VERY ☀️sunny☀️ evening, possibly slightly too warm for those who had impressively run or cycled there 👏🏼

Back at the home of GoodGym Lambeth (aka Papa's Park), we noticed the changes and were pleased to see that the playground has reopened and was being enjoyed by lots of local families.

Although the lovely Valcie wasn't able to join us, we got our instructions and got down to work.

There was hoeing, sweeping, weeding, litter-picking and bindweed-plucking (and we all know that no one gets rid of bindweed like GoodGym 💪🏼)

After just over an hour's hard work in the sun, we called it a day and gathered for a group photo by the rainbow mural and interesting COVID precautions sign 🌈 We spent some time pondering just quite how to sing the COVID hand-washing song to the tune of Happy Birthday and believe we may have cracked it 😁

And that was that. Thank you everyone, Valcie was really pleased with the difference after seeing the photos. And hopefully we'll be back for some more Papa's action soon 🤞🏼
