5 hardy weather warn GoodGymers braved the Saturday storm to help Rose Hill Allotments and their communal pond and wildlife plot.

Frogs and Newts in the rain, Wishing we were in Spain. Angus is driving me insane he's late for the task again!

Simon showed us how to use a mattock (like a pick axe) and scythed the grass before we got there Ellie raked and forked the wet grass to the fence at the edge Mary and Ben moved stones from the pond to build a new path Trev stopped people going home until they were soaking wet! 

Great work in the storm, Simon was very pleased Thanks everyone for coming hope you get warm again soon :)
