Getting hench, drenched and edging to the bench, GoodGym Bromley smashed it this evening in pretty grim conditions.

Thankfully our jog was perfectly pleasant as we set off from the Bridge House. Today we made up for a lack of Easter session by naming our favourite eggs from fried quails eggs to Cadbury's creme.

We swung by Cator Park's freshly planted Tiny Forest and a beautiful surprise display of tulips and daffodils we installed on our way to meet Millie.

We split into two groups to tackle a couple of tasks:

πŸ’¦ Soaking the willow arch, with scooped up water from the river. Some new stems had been planted so water helps them bed in.

πŸ’ͺ Edging the paths to widen them.

The rain came soon after we started and it got muddy pretty quick but we managed to get the willow arch watered and edging all the way to the bench.

Ace stuff.
