17 Goodgymers decended onto Oxford St (not quite as busy as the one in London) in Norwich where Somerleyton Gardens is located. With the two main tasks being to maintain the garden and do a leaflet drop, and with there still being a lot of daylight, Goodgymers divided into two main groups with one distributing leaflets to nearby residents and the other groups splitting into two more groups to remove stubborn weeds and bigger thornier plants.

With it quickly getting a lot darker, it suddenly became difficult for those without head torches to spot weeds so it was time to wrap up and bring their bagged up garden waste together and get ready for a group photo! With that done and the rain starting to arrive, everyone went off in their different directions having successfully completed another task. For those running or biking back a long distance, it was going to be a very wet journey back.

Thank you to Mark and Liz for their photographs.

Welcome to James, Jessica and Lena for their first GoodGym task.

I'm the Trainer for GoodGym Norwich. I love running and have led a lot of running groups in the Norfolk area, none as fun as the GG family.
