Led by Simon Fitzmaurice

Area Activator Simon, Goodgym legend John and new-to-London Goodgymmer Kate (welcome!) joined us for our monthly gardening session at Compton Square Gardens on Saturday. Simon had arrived straight from Finsbury parkrun- the task is perfectly placed for anyone attending Highbury Fields parkrun too!

The lovely Elise and the local team were heartened to see our crew of Goodgymmers present for the February session, as there was plenty of lifting and shifting tasks available! We worked together to help with sweeping up loads of fallen leaves, branches and overgrowth from the flower beds surrounding the park, to give the bulbs and saplings the best chance of growing during the Spring months. Kate and John also participated with plenty of pruning for the bushes around the entrance and exit to the space.

We love helping with this lovely green space by our busy North London station, and we are so happy to contribute. We'll be back again, same time, next month!
