Goodgym Hero of the Week, Mikaela, was joined by twelve deputy heroes on the High Street tonight to do some gardening for Colchester in Bloom. After a briefing from Tav, we ran and walked to the meeting point to get our instructions. Armed with garden bags and tools we made short work of emptying ten two-tier planters of old plants, ready for the new ones tomorrow. The task was a repeat of the one in May, although this time it didn't end in free rhubarb for the runners! We piled our heavy bags of plants into Pam's car, and headed off for some hill sprints, supported by Stu, Hels, and Yee, shouting encouragement and shining some extra lights! πŸ‘ 😁 πŸ‘ A fantastic run, walk, cycle and task this evening, well done everyone!
