In the shadow of Windsor castle 7 goodgymers met at Windsor cricket club to help out with some much needed garden maintenance of the overgrown storage area. Luckily there were no knights to say Ni tonight

We set about cutting back and clearing as much of the overgrown weeds, ivy and nettles (lots of very stingy nettles!) that were covering the fences and floor of the area.

After 90 minutes a number of nettle stings, an appearance from mickey and an old cricket ball we had cleared a large amount of shrubbery and left it in a large pile for onward removal from the club

After tidying up, and returning the tools to a safe place, we made our way back to our own carriages before the clock struck midnight (8.30) and made our way home
