Tonight we were back at Canbury Gardens for Part 3 of the GoodGym flowerbed and had lots to celebrate.

Claire was completing her 100th task and Marie-Noelle her birthday.

Claire was given her cape, crown and card for 100 tasks and we had a quick warm up in the park.

Claire, Emma, Julie, Catherine, Lily and Sabir ran to Canbury Gardens where they met Marie-Noelle.

In the park after a quick trip to the tool shed to collect spades, wheelbarrows and watering cans we headed to the woodchip pile. Marie-Noelle and Sabir fetched water from the river to give the plants a drink whilst everyone else loaded up the wheel barrows.

Claire, Marie-Nolle, Lily and Emma spread the woodchip whilst Julie, Sabir and Catherine kept the wheel barrows coming.

It look about 12 wheel barrows full of wood chip to cover all the areas in between the plants.

It’s now ready for the final stage to put up the fence. Keep an eye out for the next GoodGym flowerbed task.
