Nearly 5 years ago, one of GoodGym Stockport's earliest tasks was to help Alexandra Park Primary School to de-weed and clear up their outdoor area to allow it to be utilised by the pupils in the warmer months. 5 years on and we were back for more of the same!

We set off from our Life Leisure base for an uphill sprint, with a scenic park loop added for mindful measure and clocked up 3km before arriving at the School.

Peter, the school's Business Manager, greeted us with tools and tasks and we set off with the challenge of clearing the area of weeds.

We dug, we shovelled, we weeded and we chatted before completing the task (bang on time!)
