Monday's forecast was miserable, with another evening of rain to enjoy, but five Goodgym Brent members knew that a fun night was in store so met at the Queensbury, ready to take on some gardening. Luckily for us the rain had stopped by seven and after warming up we ran 3km to Harlesden Town Gardens. This community space is no longer open to the public due to the COVID testing site , however the garden still needs alot of maintenance and Goodgym Brent were eager to help out.

Philip met us and escorted us past the security, to show us the path in desperate need of weeding. The wet weather and lack of visitors has been great for the wild flower lawn, but has meant weeds have had the chance to break into the path. So we set to work weeding away ..... a rather relaxing task

Once the time was up we added the weeds to the compost , and had a tour of the garden including the many fairy hide outs...and the throne room . We will be back again soon (hopefully on a drier day!)

We then ran back to the Queensbury, making it through Roundwood park just in time before closing, Amazing effort everyone !
