It was a lovely re-visit to Bath City Farm for 4 Goodgymmers, having last helped out in the depths of lockdown earlier in the year. The whole farm was in beautiful bloom and it was a warm, quiet evening to enjoy the views back over Bath and its hot air balloons. First off we scrubbed and scraped muck and paint off big metal sheds, ready for a fresh coat of paint in the summer holidays. Then we cleared out a pig sty ready for a makeover and a new inhabitant, before a bit of hard work clearing grass on some long steps, helped out by a hungry donkey called Dougal. We were lucky enough to finish off the evening by feeding and cuddling baby goat Lydia (and batting away some cheeky older goats too). Jane got a long hug from Lydia, while Jer fed all of them some delicious hedge trimmings, and Alice and Max made some new goaty friends. A lovely evenings work and we can't wait to be back again next month!
