Six Goodgymmers, Caprice, Sarah, Lea and Keith, as well as newbies Georgina and friend, spent a (very) wet and dry morning working on a brick path for TOSH Orchard Garden. Laying bricks 🧱 in a pretty pattern, edging the path in a nice line and chipping off the old mortar of the recycled bricks…. We were all having a “whacking” time: hammering, raking, laying, setting and, of course, whacking. And Sarah, sorry that I didn’t realise the American raincheck is different to my Dutch raincheck, no lie-in for you today! Brilliant task, brilliant result. Thanks Goodgymmers.

Ahh I love this!! Thank you so so much, super duper cracking whacking team. We'd of course love to have you again. Would it be possible to have the pics sent over via email so that we can do a social post thank you?!
