Following a typically wet Bank Holiday, the forecast for tonight's task wasn't looking good... thunder and lightning at 6pm apparently!

Despite this, 6 Goodgymers ran 5km to support Burges Road Community Gardens, and it turned out to be a warm dry evening!

Faced with a wall of broken concrete, our task was to fill in a hole to create the foundations for the arrival of a shed, and to discard the remaining rubble into the skip.

The rubble came in all shapes and sizes, but the team got stuck in and in 50 minutes we had fully cleared the site!

The paths will soon be marked out in the garden, ready for some digging on our next visit. And there will also be shelter if the heavens decide to open...
