At Ashton Avenue play area six GG Yorkies arrived to find four Everest size mountains of woodchip to spread around a relatively small playground.

Armed with shovels, rakes and wheelbarrows they spent an hour spreading an initial generous layer, covering all of the ground around the equipment.

With several woodchip mounds left to clear, it's now ready for another team to visit in a few weeks time to make it at least twice as deep underneath the play equipment!
