A great atmossphere
Dayum it gets dark so early now. Nevermind. The darkness wouldn’t put off our team of 12 wonderful GoodGymers!
Tonight’s task took us to Brixton Road Youth Centre where we met Sharron and Kathy who had a pretty mossy job for us...
The ground clearly gets pretty moist and lockdown had given the moss a chance to grow on a lot of the ground around the youth centre. Our job was to scrape it up with shovels and rakes and bag it up with as many leaves as possible. Michael also was given an extra job of trimming some trees back away from the path with some pretty funky secateurs. ✂️🌿
It was a tough challenge, with some nasty scraping noises and some seriously stubborn moss, but in the end we had a good 10 bags of leaves, moss and tree cuttings!
Blink and you’ll moss it
On the way back, we had a few pitstops for some lunges, press ups, tricep dips, wall-sits (X2) 😏 and a few quick squats before the traffic lights went green.
It moss be love.
Great stuff everyone!
