The Grateful Dead were a band beloved of hippies and Good Gym, like hippies, has a great love of nature. And so it was that one Good Gymer (kind of) ran over to Crofton Park Railway Garden to help out with their regular gardening party. On arrival they were met with pair of secateurs and shown to a patch of lavender, which sadly like so much at this tine of year was past it's best and in need of dead heading. After about an hour and a quarter the lavender had received a well deserved haircut and with the smell of it's perfume in his nose the Good Gymer wandered off into the last of the summer.
