It was time for our longer run this month, not to be put off 12 goodgymers got together at our meeting point at Sport Wales National Centre. We split into our two groups with the 5 walk / joggers heading out first to tackle the 3.5 km to Oasis whilst the 7 runners took a slightly different route through the park.

It was a hot day for this run, but we chatted all the way and made it in good time to meet up with our regular goodgymer Karolina, who today donned her Oasis hat.

We kept hydrated with some water and had a look around.

It had changed since the last time we had helped here with some new planters, trellis, and even more planting. Today there was some painting of the new planters and old sign, watering, general tidying up.

Oh, wait here come the walk / joggers to join in. Everyone got stuck in with their chosen tasks and we even had opportunities to chat to Karolina about some of the plants that were around the gardens.

The 30 minutes flew by so fast that we were nearly late leaving, just enough time for a quick group photo before heading back and popping out for some food and a bit of a social.

Always great times with this team.
