On an autumnal September evening, 6 Good-Gymmers caught a break in the rain to help out at The Bridge in East Greenwich Pleasaunce.

Upon arriving at the community playground the lovely Ruth set us to work cleaning the outdoor toys ready for their 'stay and play' sessions to start up again in October.

We methodically worked our way through the wide selection of toys including ride on cars, scooters, bicycles, prams, and best of all a yellow digger! Each received a good scrub with Dettol followed by a hose down. By the end they were all sparkling clean and ready to be enjoyed by the children!

The evenings are truly starting to draw in earlier recently, but luckily we had every single one of the toys cleaned and put away before darkness fell - great teamwork everyone!
