Six GoodGymers met on a sunny Saturday afternoon to help local gem Abney Park Cemetery pack down after their spring fundraiser.

Abney Park Trust had spent the day hosting a Spring Fayre, with lots of stalls, food outlets and activities for kids.

GoodGym had visited earlier in the day to help set up and build 12 gazebos to host some of the stalls for the fair.

After a successful event with thousands of attendees visiting the park, there was lots of clearing up to do, so having GoodGym back to pack down the gazebos was a real help for the team.

After an hour of unpegging, dismantling and folding, the team had managed to pack down 12 gazebos and tables and carry them all back to the store.

The Abney Spring Fayre was a great day out - thanks everyone for your help!

And shout out to Patrick for the pun this week!
