GoodGym Bromley's first visit to Kelsey Park near Beckenham as we got underway with our slate of group tasks to attack the January challenge.

We arrived at 09:30 on a cold but clear Sunday morning to meet the Friends of Kelsey Park, whose task was to tidy up a hedge and other foliage next to the tennis courts. We helped carry tools over to the site and got stuck in. Mark and Claire headed behind the (non-evergreen) hedge to clear a walkway so that rogue tennis balls could be retrieved. Richard declared war on brambles, pulling some huge ones out, and Stephen cleared suckers and other growths from a nearby Sycamore tree. Meanwhile, Helen went litter picking in a pair with a Friend and collected loads from just one corner of the park, making it a much more pleasant space for families now. Great work!

Liz from the Friends was very happy with our work, so we're welcome back at next month's session - sign up here.
