It was finally time to dig the lights out. Noooooo, the dark evenings have finally arrived (tears down cheeks). Hey, but meeting up with the Bexley gang is all we needed to lift our spirits and get our headlamps on (big smiley faces).

After our signing in chat it was straight into our warm up. Tonights task is always a busy one and we wanted to give it as much time as we could. I personally love running up to the library as it becomes a dodging game with the commuters heading home. It also brings a lot of interest to the group with passers by definitely paying attention to the red bluuuuuur passing by them ;-)

On arrival we split ourselves into three groups. Front garden, side path, and the back car park. We then grabbed our tools of choice from the shed and got stuck in to the job at hand.


Weeding, shoveling, clipping, and bagging rubbish is one hell of a workout. Trust me, you really start to feel it, but watching the transformation of the area is just the boost we needed to keep going. Its just so awesome watching everything come together.


With everything done and tools safely packed away, the only thing left to do was our mandatory group photo. We then headed home chatting about the transformation and the great work everyone had put in.

Yay!!! Another Goodgym Bexley memory made.........WELL DONE TEAM (high five hands).
