Twelve of us ran to help Holgate Community garden. We welcomed Helen on her first Goodgym task! Max, Ed, Katie and Helen got to work edging the paths with Paul, Lindsay, David, Louise and Vicky sweeping and raking up the last leaves and earth whilst Egg, Richard and Laura cleared away the turf and leaves. In some places it was hard to tell the path edges were there underneath all the grass but we found it eventually, further back than we were expecting to. The brushing was also quite challenging as most of the leaves were welded the basketball court and paths. After an hour or so we had edged one and a half paths and cleared many of the leaves from the court and banks.
