While honoured to be running together with our GoodGym Hero Jane - in 10th place for the distance covered nationwide, we wondered about the story of the allegedly famous Floral Clock in Palmeira Square, Hove. Palmeira and Adelaide Garden Fund want to restore this 70-year-old floral clock that was installed to mark Queen’s Victoria coronation, adding value to the square for being one of the few monuments about the Queen in Brighton &Hove. Here, this Sunday May 7, Coronation weekend, there will be a picnic in the park, music and a fundraising fair from noon to around 5pm - expecting 200+ residents, celebrating neighbours and community by sitting together, sharing friendships and food.
All Brighton GoodGyme-rs are invited to join for a right royal knees up! We always like helping our friends Stuart and Judith, who are very proactive directors of the Palmeira and Adelaide Garden Fund Group and joint this Tuesday’s GoodGym mission for clearing and scrubbing the garden up to royal standard! Another nice evening with an enthusiastic return to action from Nicola and welcoming our new member Ben. Hope the squats and lunges of our fitness session will not deter you from coming back next week 😊 Happy Good-royal Gyming!
