Seven goodgym runners came to help the volunteers of Long Lane pasture. We all met at the reserve and had a quick introduction from Harriet who went through health and safety. Long Lane Pasture is a 1.1 hectare nature reserve in Finchley in the London Borough of Barnet. It is owned by Barnet Council and managed by the Long Lane Pasture Trust. The council does not contribute any funds to the Trust and under a management plan it is managed to protect its wildlife and enhance its biodiversity. We introduced ourselves and stated our favourite colour. (Blue is the colour running is the game!) Welcome to Yanti on her first run with Goodgym and Charlie with his first run with Goodgym Barnet. Give them a cheer and we hope to see you again soon! We then set to work as instructed raking the brambles from the top end of the pasture and transporting them by wheelbarrow to a rather large pile.(presumably for burning at some point) We did this for about 50 minutes and then were invited to have coffee and biscuits. Thank you Harriet and the other volunteers! After our refreshments we put on our trainers warmed up and headed out on a short run to some local woods. Thanks to Charlie for back marking. We stopped once for some star jumps on a footbridge over the north circular and to enjoy the woods before heading back to the pasture. Thank you Abi,Laura, Agnes and Justine for supporting our starter event. Thanks for coming and doing so good!
