Last night two Good Gym runners set off at a merry pace to help the Friends of Park Hill prepare the Flower Fairy Garden ahead of the children's summer activities.

Firstly and foremost, the rain held off! Despite a rather ominous grey sky we were able to complete our run and task in the dry, hurray! We were met in the Walled Garden by Catherine and Josi, who were armed with all the tools and equipment for tonights task. A lot of preparation had already been done by them Friends to prepare the new board with the sign for the flower fairy garden and it was our task to help put it up. After some careful measurements and a bit of a wiggle to make sure it was straight we were able to apply the nails and glue to keep it in place. The sign had been missed by the park users so they will be glad to see it back up in place.

We swept up the paths and the pavillion leaving the area ready for the children's activities to begin.
