11 awesome Goodgymmers descended upon the Westbury Banks Nature Reserve to lend a hand in prepping the site for the rehabilitation of a tree avenue.

Can I get a Woop Woop?

Big noise for Diego who travelled all the way from New Zealand to join us for his maiden run - talk about Goodgym tourism. Boom.

And thanks to everyone last night who celebrated good ol' Gramps as I burst my way through the big door marked '150 Good Deed Club'. You all rock. (And special mention to Alex for today's Gramps-centric pun).

Rollin' In The Deep

Never doubt our Goodgymmers to turn up with their sleeves rolled up when it comes to helping out at the Westbury Banks Nature Reserve: Goodgymmers Gonna Goodgym after all. Give them a call asking for help, and they'll never let You down. They'll turn Up with a smile on their lips and ready for action. Sometimes, they might even turn up in ways that might surprise you!

Anyway, last night was no exception. We all came ready for some hard graft. We removed an old plastic liner from the tree avenue as well as some loose stakes and logs, leaving the pathway ready for the Friends of Westbury Banks Nature Reserve to now come and make a decision on how to rehabilitate the tree avenue.

It looked like a very big job but you should've seen our Goodgymmers - they wasted no time and within 20 minutes, they has sorted it all out.

We even had time to fix a couple of fallen bug hotels and cleared a bunch of fallen tree debris from the newly-laid accesible path.

Having finished our task for the eve, Gramps was surprised with bubbles, cards, and goodies as we tried to take some group shots. Cheeky bunch!

We ate our biscuits and had a good ol' natter late into the evening.

A lovely eve.

Join us next week for more shenanigans.
