Community mission

Four Land in Thorlands

4 GoodGymers made their way to help the Thorlands Garden in Southwark.

Vic played truant from dog-minding and cycled from Peckham, Shannon had to take the straight run-route from Steatham, rather than the scenic one, Jo walked 2km from home, while John ran a bit less than that, to get there from the Oval station. And the rain barely arrived at all.

Eventually there'll be a path running through the community garden at Thorlands, but in the meantime we need to keep the foliage from overrunning the place. So we got to work with a whole wheelbarrow of tools and made an amazing difference, just in a hour and a bit. Even a stubborn tree root succumbed to Jo's fork.

But there's more to do still, and we'll be back!
