Six GoodGymers met with Urban Green for a Sunday morning task at Hodgkin Park.

  In true GoodGym spirit and not wanted to axe the task, @Paul rose to the challenge of tackling the removal of fence posts.

  While @Paul tackled the fence posts, the other Goodgymers got to work on bringing new life into the cobbles and mosaic tiles. The techniques involved a lot of trowel and error.

  During the tea break, we were joined by local councillor Rob Higgins. Keep an eye out for a new park run coming to the West End.

  After the tea break there was no mosaicking about, and we all chipped in to reveal more of the beautiful cobbles. One mosaic tile was covered by mud and was lovingly washed to reveal the true colours.

  If you're wanting to change your career Urban Green are looking for a ranger and a community gardener. Have a look at their website for more information.

  Next Goodgym mission is on Monday 13th March. 18:15 at Stepney bank stables. All are welcome.
