5 Awesome GoodGymers ran and cycled to Springfield Park to dig out a 50 meter edge for the parks new flower bed.

A big welcome to GG first timer Esme and a strong 4k run up to Springfield park. meeting the rest of the crew we grabbed the kit and started the hardest 2 jobs of the night, finding the painted white line for up to dig (in the dark) and unwrapping the the new edging spades. 10 minutes of searching and unwrapping followed before we got our dig on.

Digging down deep on some hard ground to create the edge for the parks new flower bed which will allow the T garden to grow bigger and better ready for Spring.

30 minutes and 3 wheelbarrows full we had completed the task!

Tidying up and heading off into the night with another task complete!!
