Firstly huge congratulations to Michael for not only completing a marathon on Sunday but turning up to do Goodgym on Tuesday! I know the marathon didn’t go quite to plan but it is a phenomenal achievement to have completed and we loved hearing all about it last night. Feel proud!

Also last night a big Goodgym welcome goes to Matthew joining us for his first experience.

Our task tonight was a visit to the ever fantastic community garden that is Ingram Crescent. Every time we visit this place just gets better and better and they have now added a large seating area including a carved wooden fox. Michael & Juliet worked with resident Vic to scrub all the bird droppings of the benches ready to be used for the upcoming Easter weekend.

With a wet afternoon ruining the possibility of painting the shed as planned gardener Kim came up with a couple of alternative tasks. Firstly we created a 'fence' out of old bits of wood to house bags of rotting leaf mould and then we raked over some beds to remove sticky weed.

A quick pic with the fantastic Mx Fox before we headed back and then off to the Wick for our monthly social.
