This evening marked 6 years since the launch of GoodGym Norwich, and I've had the pleasure of being there since the start.

We've been fortunate enough to help at Mousehold Heath since year 1, so it was very apt that we were visiting there this week.

Will, the regular warden of Mousehold Heath, greeted us with some pitch forks, as we then headed in to the heath to pull up some bracken.

As you can see from the before and after photos, we made huge inroads!

Clearing the invasive bracken allows for more wildlife to thrive in the heath.

We topped off the evening with a picnic in the park to celebrate 6 epic years, with many more to come.
