4 GoodGymers made their way 1.0km to help the Friends of Park Hill Rec in Croydon.
- Tuesday, 24th of October 2023

The group met on a chilly Tuesday evening at the entrance to Park Hill. With head torches switched on, the team bee-gan the hill climb. The group were guided to the top by the glow of Josi and Catherine's torch, who were awaiting their arrival.
The team quickly set to work. Ingrid and Josi collected litter from the walled gardens and from the park. Meanwhile, Hannah, Nik, Catherine and Liz raked and swept the paths in the walled garden. The leaves were collected, so that they can bee composted.
The next activity was to investigate a nest. Could it bee a wasp nest or a bee's nest? Nik spotted honeycomb next to the nest. The bee detectives concluded that it must be a bee's nest!
Finally, the team took the tools back to the shed and bee-gan their decent of the hill.
Great job, team!
