A chance encounter with Saroj during our May Day gardening task at Flo's led to us being asked if we could help out with the garden at Littlemore Village Hall. The Hall is a community run space which receives no public funding, and is kept going by a dedicated team of volunteers. They requested a GoodGym flash mob to help blitz a few of the bigger garden jobs so that the space is a bit smarter for hirers.

10 GoodGymers packed their gardening gloves and spent a couple of hours helping out the village hall team. We had a task list including weeding, pruning, emptying out old planters, composting, planting out new plants, filling raised beds and cutting back an overly vigorous hazel tree.

At the end of the session we were treated to a delicious cake buffet, cups of tea and coffee, and an opportunity to chat with the hall volunteers.

Will garden for cake!
