Rocking around the clock at Ash Tree Yard
14 runners ran 5km to help the A Different Gear in Sheffield.
- Monday, 21st of June 2021
- Led by Tom Mutton
We rocked up to Ash Tree Yard, home to local not-for-profit bike shop; A Different Gear to help them to create a rock garden out the front of the shop.
After a brief from our good mate Rob the Parky down at Heeley People's Park we got straight to clearing the area of smaller rocks to give us a blank slate to work on, whilst others headed round back to fill wheelbarrows and hands with the big rocks that would form the path, barriers and walkway for the garden. The boulder amongst us picking some epic rocks. Who needs weights?
Once it began to take shape some went onto spreading soil into the beds that had been created by others and it really ended looking like to begninings of what will be a fantastic space for the shop and the local community near by. We even had a local neighbour come out to say what a fantastic job we were all doing and how good it looked.
The team were a bunch of diamonds, working fantastically under pressure! It really was marbelous to see!
