This morning we helped out Friends of Whirlow Brook Park (FoWBP) in their summer Plant Swap/ Sale event set up to help fund new bat boxes for the park.

First things first - directions! Our trusty group of GoodGymers got to work erecting signs to guide the public to the location.

Highlights included: - A morning with GG friends - Meeting FoWBP volunteers :) - Icecream for sale to support the bats - so we had to purchase of course, eating icecream to support wildlife - win-win - A large variety of plants for perusing - with our GG volunteers purchasing a fair few - Learning fun facts to support bats, and posing as bats in our GG and FoWBP joint picture
- Explaining to FoWBP the work GoodGym does and how we can help with events/ gardening volunteering as future GG Community Missions - they said they would be in touch :)
- And finally, post community mission lunch at the new cafe at Whirlow Hall Farm - we definitely recommend a trip to :)

See you again :)
