It's GoodGym Lambeth's 6th Birthday!!!!

So to celebrate we did some GOOD.

Tonight's task was at Jubilee Primary School, mainly to shift some large planks of wood to access a bench(?!) and clearing leaves in the play area out the front, so that the pupils have more space to play in!

We kicked off welcoming our new runners Harriet, Mark, Harry and Charlotte to the gang and admired those runners who've stuck with Lambeth since the beginning!

Then we had a brisk warm up and split into 3 groups to run to the task.

When we arrived we got straight to work lifting and shifting leaves and branches (and a poor deceased bird) into compost piles and moving some of those big blue gymnast mats (you know the ones) from a shed to the car park. And those who took the longer run options dove straight into moving all the planks and rearranging them neatly.

We wrapped up, ran back through windy Brixton and shot off to the pub for a serious beer selection and mostly brownies. 😋

Here's the link to next week's run at the Portico Gallery.
