Thirst past the post

A hardy bunch of goodgymers braved the wind and freezing rain to join the Tree Musketeers in another tree planting session on Well Street Common. Kudos to first timers Sophie, Hannah and Becky for getting started on their goodgym journey. But first... Congratulations to Eva who ran her 100th parkrun at Hackney Marshes this morning. That kind of achievement deserves special recognition in the form of personalised biscuits no less! Back at Well Street, Hackney Goodgym have honed the tree planting routine and operate like a well oiled machine. Dig hole (square), insert tree, fill in hole, insert stake, cover with guard and a good helping of mulch for protection. Those oak trees should be set for the next 700 years. After a couple of hours we were beginning to lose feeling in our extremities so decided to remedy this with a mulled wine at the pub. Nice work team.
