Four GoodGymers gave up their Saturday lie in and braved the wind and the rain at Nunsmoor Park this morning.

Alongside a number of regular park volunteers, Katy, Amy, Seb and myself were tasked with clearing a large area of weeds and nettles from an area just outside of the impressive bike garden. As you can see in the before and after photos we were able to achieve quite a lot in the two hours and the regular volunteers were very pleased, and thankfully we were located under the cover of trees throughout the task so we managed to avoid getting too wet!

A big congratulations to Seb for completing his 5th good deed and Amy for completing her 10th, go and give them a cheer! However, I feel that everyone deserves an extra good deed today for being involved in a non-stop game of throw-and-catch with Mitsy (pictured above)!

It was great to be back at Nunsmoor Park and to feel like we made a genuine difference and I'm sure we'll be back soon which is certainly something to look forward too!
