Down with decorations, in with new bulbs
5 runners ran to help the SeeAbility in Kingston upon Thames.

A team of hardy GoodGymers went back to the residential house on Ditton Road on a cold and drizzly evening to help take down the outdoor Christmas lights and decorations for the Seeability residents. Marie-Noelle and Claire climbed ladders in the dark to tackle the lights (with trusty headtorches) and did a sterling job of removing them from the front and back of the house. Hundreds of window stickers needed to be peeled off from the inside of the kitchen windows (we can only blame ourselves for being so good at sticking them on in the first place) and the fake snow wiped off from the bottom of the windows. Petra tackled the tree and we put it in the garage for next year.
Final task was to plant tulips and daffodils that were kindly donated from Welcare. Welcare won hundreds of bulbs from the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association in association with Taylors Bulbs of Holbeach but had so many that they've decided to share them with other community gardens in the area. One good deed deserves another! We planted them along the fence at the back and front of the house - hopefully we will see them in their full glory in Spring.
