Digging into the past
5 GoodGymers made their way to help the Friends of Queen’s Promenade in Kingston upon Thames.

A lovely morning well spent with the Queen's Promenade Friends. They want to restore an Italian style terrace which has been neglected for too long and they needed lots of volunteers to sift through the soil removing the invasive St John's Wort plants and roots. Not a bad plant but it has completely taken over sections.
Jane, Petra, Marie-Noelle and our wonderful new GoodGymer Ana all went to help from 10am. They had made fantastic progress so when I turned up at 11am they had found a stone ledge and removed bucketfuls of weeds.
It was lovely to be by the river and chatting to Stefan, who had contacted us to help, we found out more about their plans to keep weeding and then plant a beautiful garden when the time was right.
Lots to do - we'll be happy to help in the future.
