On a muggy and sticky evening the intrepid Ipswich GG gang got down to work lifting and shifting logs at Brickmakers Wood.

Team Sycamore and Team Elm (we had two large piles of logs to move) pulled on their gloves and grabbed a wheelbarrow each to begin a sweaty 60 minutes of piling high.

New faces Alex and hardcore regulars created a human chain, as wave after wave of wheelbarrows climbed the dizzy heights of 75m total elevation and 2 miles of barrow pushing. It's on Strava so it happened!

Site manager, Jo Brooks, was delighted to see us back, knowing her wood piles were soon to be restored, as the Trust continues to transform a quiet corner of Ipswich into a calm, and tranquil oasis for cancer patients and their families.

We will back soon to see if we can improve on our team performance stats.

Well done everyone.
