Today 10 goodgymers arrived to do good at the London Road Cemetary which is also part of Historic Coventry Trust.

Laura, Louise and Joe set off on a brisk walk to the cemetary and after Laura D's first warm up session,Graeme, Allan, Georgia and James ran to catch up. With it only being a mile away we were there in a flash. Claire and Chris decided to meet us there and with the help of who.what.where we eventually located them.

Gianni was there to greet us and to tell us the task in hand which was the removal of the horsetail weed and it was EVERYWHERE! It was tough to remove it all so we mainly pulled the tops off to make it more presentable. We probably managed about 15-20 graves out of 24,000 so only a few more to go!! This lovely lot were still smiling even though we left feeling slightly defeated by the evil horsetail.

Thanks everyone for your efforts!
