23 Happy Hackney GoodGymers ran 5k to Haggerston park and shovelled a complete mulch mountain to lay a massive woodchip path to keep the park protected and used through the winter.
Thanks to everyone for coming along this evening!! Big shout out to The GOodGym first timers!!! Hope you had a top first session and will be back next week for more!!
A bit of a round about loop stretching out the group a bit on the 2.5k route to Haggerston Park to meet Park Ranger Bruce from Hackney Parks.
While the tools were getting set up we increased the body warmth with some scorching floodlit Sprints!! Powering up the 80 metre stretch then jogging back made sure we were fully physically prepared for the task ahead!!
Arming ourselves with gloves, snow shovels and 6 wheelbarrows we headed into the darkness to get started!!
A 3 tonnes pile of mulch lay ahead and we set up a spectacular mulch moving system to get the job done!! We had barrow runners keeping the wheels moving at a great pace, Shovellers loading the barrows, single Scoopers loading a snow shovel high then taking it directly to the newly forming pathway. Then we had the path curators and Chi playing traffic cop keeping a good distance and route of all the toings abd frowings.
We had a great pace going and the pile was going down while the path was getting thicker and longer!!
Smashing out a furious last 10 minutes of action to complete the task and leave no piece of woodchip behind we were done in style!!
Running back at a bouncy pace had us hope dead on time!! Stretched out and heading home with a top task complete!!
See you next week for a visit to Wilton Estate community Garden!!
Next Social after the Group Run on the 11th of February to get Pizza
Thanks to Chi and Liz for all the non blurry pictures!!
