7 Goodgymmers made their way to Foleshill Community Centre for some watering and weeding this eve. We welcomed back Georgia and Louise on their second good deed and we also welcomed Madeeha on her first session.

We were instructed by the task owner to water the allotment, water the plants in the poly tunnel and weed the car park. Everyone got stuck in, Laura started hosing the veg and herbs in the planters which are all filling out nicely with some of the fine weather we've been having. Katherine, Louise and James donned their gloves for those pesky weeds and Madeeha and Georgia filled up their watering cans for the poly tunnel.

Madeeha and Georgia made fast work of the tunnel and joined Laura on watering the allotment plants. The team all worked hard to get as much done in the time we had. We managed to water everything and although the weeders did a grand job there were a few too many for us to complete the task so that will have to be done another time.

To end the session Katherine suggested we ask for a little tour around the cafe and supermarket for the Goodgymers who hadn't visited the centre before. Spencer gave us a wee tour, we had a group photo, said our goodbyes to Louise and made our way back to base.

Well done everyone!
