Shovel, Shovel, Soil and Rubble, Muscles Burn and Teapot Bubble
3 GoodGymers made their way to help the Barrow Farm RDA (Riding and Carriage Driving For the Disabled) and Chelmsford Lions Club in Chelmsford.
- Sunday, 17th of September 2023
3 GoodGymers headed to Barrow Farm on a warm but overcast Sunday morning, the perfect weather for moving and shovelling lots of soil! When we arrived we met Andrea who told us what we needed to do and we got stuck in with the rest of the volunteers. Joe and Andy were on the wheelbarrow team, helping move the soil from the front of the farm through to the garden at the back. Fay was on shovelling duty, helping to level out the ground with the soil as it was delivered.
From the photos you'd be forgiven for thinking that Joe spent more time on a tea break than he did working but I confirm that he definitely pulled his weight. I managed to avoid being in any pictures so I can't even prove I did anything at all!
Chelmsford Lions are going to be hosting a show on Chelmsford Community Radio, so we put our best interview voices on and Julie interviewed us about all things GoodGym. Andy is a pro when it comes to being on the radio so I'd bet he will be slickest in the final cut.
We are likely to be headed back to Barrow Farm once more before everything is finished, keep your eye out for the community mission on the website in the coming days.
Next week our group run is a leaflet drop, you can sign up here
