The Ark-T centre have a Summer Celebration event on Friday evening this week, so they called in the GoodGym flashmob to get the garden ready for an influx of visitors.

Armed with secateurs, brooms and paint brushes we set to work:

  • Painting the wooden teepee in funky colours
  • Giving the pathway a good sweep to clear it of as much sand as possible
  • Trimming the willow fronds back so that they weren't at eye level (and blocking the sight line of the CCTV).
  • Pruning the shrubbery so the hammock can be used.
  • Litter picking (2 condom wrappers found)
  • Moving decking boards so that they don't form a trip hazard
  • Breaking down rotten wooden pallets
  • Giving the garden a thorough watering
  • Topping up the sand pit

Fun was had on the climbing frame and slide and no-one over heated while running or gardening, plus we had a full compliment of GoodGym Tshirts, with everything from Race Team Vest to 50 and 100 Good Deed milestone Tshirts, to New Balance AND Saucony versions - a successful summer evening!
