As it was the second Monday of the month, tonight’s GoodGym Richmond Group Run headed out from the Tap Tavern to Buccleuch Gardens on the Thames Path where we have been planting and maintaining The Three Pigeons Plot, and The Arcade Rockery.

Foxglove Angel lady Rosie was the star of tonight's group run, winning her GoodGym wings, celebrating her 100th Good Deed.

Rosie showed us how GoodDeeds should be done by planting out foxgloves that we had grown from seed last year, exhibiting dock-banishing superpowers and demonstrating stellar star-jumps. But it was a team effort and the positive attitude was infectious. Have a look at the 'before and after’ photographs.

A big turn out and a lot of hard work from everyone saw amazing results in a short time: white foxgloves planted that should flower in early summer; docks banished from the lawn next to The Three Pigeons; the steps and hardstanding at The Arcade swept and de-mossed; the monstrous pampas' at The Three Pigeons cowed; the planters in front of The Arcade weeded; Lavender and Stachys pruned at the Arcade rockery; and a self seeded Verbena at the edge of The Three pigeons relocated to somewhere more suitable.

A fantastic Richmond GoodGym Group run and a great GG Richmond social in the Tap Tavern afterwards, celebrating Rosie’s centenary. Thank you everyone.
