It was 27th August 2018 (Bank Holiday Monday) when I turned up at Salt Hill Activity Centre to find out what Goodgym Slough was all about because my usual bootcamp didnt run on bank hols and I wanted to be active/keep fit.

What better way to celebrate than my first of two Good Deeds today. First a return visit to help Friends of Haymill and Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) with some more overgrowth cutting to keep the path through the reserve clear.

It was all oaky dokey as long as we left the oak saplings in situ. As 'b'rambled along the path cutting back nettles, brambles and holly, we encountered a tree with a snapped branch making it difficult to navigate the path. I can't remember who 'saw' it first but a quick hack and it was down.

Some of us then turned our hands to litter picking although this all became a bit 'tyre' ing when we found an old bicycle wheel.

Before long it was 12.45 and time to (chocolate) wrap (per) up for the morning. A quick tool count and a shorter walk back to the BBOWT Landrover and it was time to head home.
