The return on Group Runs!!!

With a summer downpour perfectly timed for the start of the session they turned out to be tears of Joy!!

Helping to celebrate the GoodGyming marvel that is East London Superstar Emma!! Having only picked up her GG gloves in March it has been a monumental effort to dominate every GoodGym activity with amazing energy and enthusiasm!! Looking forwards to many GoodDeeds to come!!

In true GG style we were literally up to our ankles in it at the enchanting Hackney City Farm!! After our debrief from superstar Ken we set about our shovel and tip task helping to regenerate the soil to allow a huge new hedge row to be planted in the Autumn.

Some monster efforts on the shovels and skillful barrow pushing allowed 2 tonnes of muck to be shifted in an action packed 50 minutes of action!!

Great effort from Woody for joining me on a very wet run!! Hopefully a few more join next time!!

Look forward to seeing you next Tuesday as we visit Debbie at Wilton Estate Community garden.
