What a lovely Goodgym day (formerly known as Wednesday) in the heart of Colchester!

We welcomed Daniel with stories of Queen Boudicca's disputed hair colour and little bit about Goodgym!

Our task tonight was whittling away the weeds and yucca leaves at Folly Garden next to Firstsite to support Alex Jones and Pam maintain it as spring approaches. Armed with torches, trowels and forks we got work, filling bag after bag with unwanted vegetation. In the darkness it was hard to make out the progress but we still enjoyed our celebratory squats!

And the treats were not over with some smashing hill sprints before we said our farewells. Speed, power and grace.

Well done Boudicca's Iceni tribe!
