Four goodgymers Beattie, Cloud, Antonioand Moya set off to our local Forest School at Martin Primary School today, a short run down the high street, to meet John the caretaker. We disappointed a teacher who thought we might be delivering their long awaited pizza, and headed to where our tools and a large pile of wood chip was waiting for us. This is a regular Good Gym task so we quickly set to work shoveling the chips into wheelbarrows ready to transport for unloading and spreading across the pathways, and under the parachute where the children gather for their campfire. We were swerved from our task however by a couple of wonky wheels! One had mysteriously lost it's inner tube and was coming off completely. Undeterred we loaded up the wheelie bin, which despite some lugging was very efficient at carrying large quantities, and the job was done in no time. With the weather turning, this should keep the kids on firmer ground. We ended with a nice run back to the toasty Phoenix Cinema for a gentle warm down.
