That was 200 bulbs planted! so thanks! said Tim Wiseman

Welcome to Hugo, our newest runner.

We ran accross the City Center to Hyde Bridge Street. We worked on the Oxford Canal, planting spring bulbs and litter picking the local area by the river and along the toepath. This was part of GoodGym's ongoing partnership with Oxford City Council, working to improve the waterways.

Its was jolly nippy this evening, but we were lucky to avoid the rain which came down in buckets about an hour after we had finished (watering our bulbs for us!).

We headed off to South Park on the way home for a hill session to finish off the evening! Well done everyone who came!

GOAL Don't forget to set a winter goal to keep you motivated during the cold!

EXTRA BIT

Christmas is just around the corner now so Rachael has kindly set up a Chirstmas Outing Doodle Poll to see if people want a GoodGym meal out!! please fill in ASAP! :)
