On a sunny summer's eve, the good folk of Hackney GC found themselves shovelling shit for a good cause, namely preparing the ground for a new hedgerow at Hackney City Farm.

Fun was had by all (I think), and the team at the farm we're grateful for the help.

I know you're all on the edge of your seats wondering; will they finish this Herculean task, will someone fall into the mound of shit (probably), will Chi ever do any work when he turns up (probably not) and who genuinely thinks this task has had a life-changing impact on their lives (all of us - we're now scarred).

For more on this, watch this space for the next thrilling instalment of this epic adventure.
