Thank you Mark

Are you bitten comfortably? Then I'll begin.

It was the tale of two GoodGyms last night, as Bromley and Croydon came together in beautiful matrimony to complete a task at Captain Sensible Garden in South Norwood. It's a little community green space with some amazing plants and trees but it's become pretty wild and overgrown in the last couple of years.

First up, our Bromley crew met at the Bridge House, we welcomed David 🥳 and each shared our favourite (or in Stephen's case - top 10) favourite high street stores, in honour of Wilkinson's/Wilko (RIP).

We met Rachel who has been organising upkeep sessions at the garden. She explained our task, to remove all the big weeds and trim back overgrown plants, and also to pick up any litter that we found.

In the end we had 15 bags of vegetation and litter arranged at the side of the road. I'm not sure anyone escaped without bitten legs at the end?! 😞

To finish, we made the most of the billboard behind us and proclaimed our love for Mondays (our usual group run night).

We did a mix of running and walking back and some of us even grabbed a drink in the pub.

Nice work everyone 👌✨
