This week's group run marks 5 years of GoodGym Liverpool (!?) and what better way to celebrate than a bit of weeding and planting with the Urban Green Up Project?

As usual we met on Hope street and walked/ran through the rain to the park lane site where we were met by Elaine. To say the site has undergone a transformation since our last visit would be an understatement! (See the report from last time here) what was once overgrown was now neatly planted with woodchips to stop the weeds coming through.

Our task was to clear the remaining weeds ready for the rest of the woodchip to go down, as well as transplant some plants from across the way onto this site! It really does look impressive - we can't wait to see it in a couple of months when everything is is full bloom! Well done everyone, it definitely wasn't easy in the dark and wet!

After the task we headed off to the Baltic Arts bar, for a well deserved drink and cake. A lovely evening was had by all! Thanks for all the birthday goodies Ema
