Having a ball at the allotment
11 GoodGymers made their way to help the Sneinton primary school allotment clearing in Nottingham.
- Sunday, 14th of January 2024
- Led by Rachel Levick
For our first task of 2024, 11 GoodGymers made their way back to Sneinton Primary School Community Allotment on a chilly but sunny morning in Nottingham. The ever-cheerful Kathryn met us and set us to work on various tasks around the allotment.
Natalie, Rebecca F, Rebecca N and Oliver took on the overgrowth and brambles at the back of the garden, unearthing quite a few balls which had found their way in from the neighbouring school (much fun was had throwing these back!). Meanwhile Nigel and Rachel W did a sterling job digging for soil and filling one of the empty beds. Mark helped Kathryn reposition some of the wooden posts in the decking area before also tackling the brambles, and Serafina and Rachel L worked on weeding the beds and vegetable patches. Last, but by no means least, Leah and Rob took on litter picking in the hedges on the path outside the allotment, aided by our miniest GoodGym members, Carys and Milo who did a great job on their first task.
After a very productive hour, we downed tools and had some of Kathryn’s homemade treats – the Christmas pudding brownie was a revelation!
We were delighted to see Natalie, Rebecca, Oliver and Robert at their first GoodGym task. We also welcomed Mark and Rebecca who were visiting us from London where they are involved in GoodGym. We look forward to seeing everyone again soon!
