It's all hands on deck with Cultivate at the moment - we're helping this charity which repurposes derelict land and provides learning opportunities for young people to move everything on site to their new home.

As usual we met at the Town Hall, but not quite as usual the sun was shining and it was well and truly shorts weather!

We set off towards Enfield Rd, managing for once to avoid the railway crossing closing (at least on the way out) and arrived to meet the rest of the team on site. We had a few moments to spare so opted to do our fitness session before the task for once. We chose a spot and spent the time working on our core muscles - essential for preventing injury and improving form and therefore efficiency.

Romina arrived just as we were finishing up and told us about our jobs for the evening. They included some shifting of pots and pallets, some light weeding and a total overhaul of the shed.

Everybody got to work and before long the place was abuzz with activity. The shed was emptied, cleaned and then carefully restocked and the transformation was complete - have a look at those before and after photos!

Next week we're back again to help out some more.

There are loads of jobs to do at Boston Manor Park this weekend and we're very short on volunteers. If you have a little time to help them out they'd really appreciate it! You can find all the details here.

Enjoy the warmer weather GoodGym!
