We're chipping away at it
6 GoodGymers made their way 2.0km to help the Bedford Fields in Leeds.
- Wednesday, 24th of August 2022
This week was full of nostalgia as we headed back to Bedford Fields. We also took the opportunity to replicate the original parkrun route (1 lap in reverse)
We had a few tasks to do this evening - moving woodchip, removing litter and pulling nettles.
We had just the right amount of work to do within the hour , as we managed to clear the path of woodchip, clean up the litter including a freddo wrapper and rich tea biscuits, and pull nettles almost without well incident (Khara!!)
Afterwards we had time to run around the ridge before it got too dark, and attempted a sunset selfie just as it was disappearing. It almost ended, but thankfully didn't, in a comical fall down a hill full of nettles.
We then returned to HPBC for a well deserved bevvy. Well done team!
