On a scorching Saturday morning, Sarah, Ben, Frannie and new member Taylor helped Juliet and Friends of William Clarke Park volunteers (of which Juliet is a committee member) with the set up for a community festival named ‘Soul in the Patch.’

The community group holds three events a year which are entirely run by volunteers. Sarah helped with the job of cleaning and taping down the vinyl dancefloor in ready for all the twists, turns and Northern soul shuffles! Frannie helped set up the shelter for the mod and Northern soul DJ’s on the stage and Ben, Taylor and Juliet helped with putting up a number of tents to give shade to the attendees.

In the evening Frannie volunteered on the bar which was non-stop! While Carla volunteered on the tea tent but soon joined in helping on the bar, learning to pull her first pint. It was a fun event and Friends of William Clarke park were very grateful to have the support of Good Gym.
