Whenever the weather in the UK is **** (you'll see a theme here) that is when GoodGymers find a way to shine!

Last night was a great example where the supposed start of summer was out on pause and the grey rainy weather moved back in all day long. That didn't stop Jo and Paul from turning out to help with a very simple task back at Jubilee Primary School.

Juan requested that we move a large bag of soil from the upper staff car park down to the lower playground where the children use the planters to dig and explore the soil.

Our first small challenge was dealing with a soggy poo kindly left by some local creature on top of the soil bag which Jo managed with a flick of the wrist - nice work.

After that we shoveled some of soil into the wheelbarrow and the remaining bag was dragged down by the handles. The rest was easy with the soil being deposited into the planter and then we tidied up the equipment.

So that was that, quick and efficient and we were a big help to Juan who would have had to do that on his own!

A big thank you guys for coming out in that weather and see you next time :0)
