9 GoodGymers made their way to help the York Railway Pond and Reserve in York.
- Saturday, 13th of January 2024
- Led by Laura Barrett
Nine of us walked, ran and cycled to Railway Pond, which for some of us was our second task of the morning. Our task was to help remove rings of ivy from around the tree trunks in order to protect the trees whilst leaving some of the ivy as a habitat for insects and other wildlife. We were offered a variety of tools to choose; axes, saws, loppers, bill hooks and secateurs. Unsurprisingly the axes were popular until we realised that apart from the largest stalks the secateurs were more effective! We welcomed Richard to his first Goodgym task.
