Hedge your bets
1 GoodGymer made their way to help an isolated older person in Sheffield.
- Friday, 28th of July 2023
The garden needed the hedge and lawn cutting. I cracked on with the front garden as that was quite a job in itself. And it certainly was a good work out with the hedge trimmer. Unfortunately I was alone after my planned companion was struck down by illness but Mrs M got involved in the work and we worked together in the sunshine. I left Mrs M mowing her back garden and it was looking great.
'Grow' are a young person's mental health charity in Sheffield that I volunteer for and they have a team of gardeners who do gardens at an affordable rate so we chatted about that and I found the phone number for any future help.
The garden is clearly really important to the couple and they like to keep it nice but it's a heavy job and needs keeping on top of.
I enjoyed my cycle out and it was a very pleasant afternoon. My arms will ache tomorrow!
