Tonight 11 GoodGymers ran to the Ash Road Allotments where OWLS have taken over a new, rather overgrown & neglected allotment.
We made a good start with the weeding & tried to make it as accessible as possible so that the service users can start to use it. This is an ongoing project that we can get stuck into over summer. Moira, an OWLS volunteer gave us all a strawberry plant which were gratefully received.

We then headed back to Heart where Lighthouse Futures was holding an event for local volunteers...perfect for us! We did the quiz, had food & drinks & even won some raffle prizes. It was a great evening & I manifested winning the theatre tickets & it worked! There's a first time for everything!

A big shout out to Helen who ran sessions over the last few weeks...what a great GoodGymer she is. Thank you!

Well done to Rachel who did her 40th mission tonight & to Katie Presley who has done 60! Thanks for all you do :)
