What a lovely little heaven of green Westbury Banks is, eh? We were lucky to help them to clear up nettles, pick up some debris, and spruced up their tree avenue.

Kudos central!

Big cheers and shout out to Holly who joined us for her first ever run with GoodGym - she was aces! Send some love her way... Also a warm welcome back to Shani, running with us again for the first time in a while. Woop!

Nettles, nettles everywhere

Following a lovely warm evening run through Haringey, including a peaceful spell through Downhills Park, we arrived at Westbury Banks Nature Reserve where task owner Luke welcomed us warmly and put us to work straight away. Some of us were entrusted with clearing the tree avenue at the top of the reserve, whilst another sub-team cleared up some very tall nettles. We also cleared up some wood, planted some small potted plants, and then even had some time for selfies. Success!

Party time!

Next week, we're celebrating our 4th birthday... Woohoo! Come and join us for some cool runnings, fun tasking, drinks and nibbles, and some general merriment.

Last but not least department!

Don't forget our community mission at Chestnut Park this weekend... come join us!

Peace!
