Keep It Shrimple
5 GoodGymers made their way 3.0km to help the Cody Dock in Newham.

Our task changed, as did our route, late yesterday afternoon, when Basia informed me of a crane at Cody Dock that was hogging all the fun. No problem; a call later to Jimmy at Nomadic Gardens and we had a back up plan ready to roll out.
Ruth, Rosa and I, jogged the 'long' way round to the gardens, because we just bloody love the miles. Hils and Kev intercepted us outside and we rolled in together. A two course menu for the evening, a wood chip spreading starter to warm up the muscles. Hils, Kev and I loading the wheel barrows in rhythm as Ruth and Rosa spread the contents. The main course was a new one, painting an old shrimping boat, armed with a variety of colours and given unusual autonomy - we set about the making our mark. We painted most of the available wooden structures, with a punchy unsymmetrical style, allowing for a vibrant haphazard chic look - all the rage, darling.
Think we did a pretty stellar job, hopefully the work stands the test of daylight! Ruth and I seemed to get more paint on ourselves than the boat - let's see if this 'acrylic' paint comes off eh.
Next week I'm trying to lock in Cody Dock, just awaiting confirmation, should have the rest of year wrapped up today too. Any task requests just let me know.
Till next week,
