Patio will do nicely

2 runners ran to help an isolated older person in Leicester.

Mr and Mrs D requested a second visit from GoodGym for more tidying in the garden.

Elle & Jimmy were up for the task and after meeting up nearby, they made their way to the mission address.

After a warm welcome from Mr and Mrs D and a brief update of the task in hand, Elle & Jimmy got stuck in.

This was part two of a mission that wasn't quite completed a few weeks earlier. We were really lucky with the weather, it was unusually mild with sunshine, which made for a quite a pleasant task in the garden.

The patio area and raised borders needed weeding and there was also small shrub that Mr and Mrs D wanted re-positioning.

Elle and Jimmy worked well together for around 90 minutes of scraping, cutting, sweeping and bagging and after several bags of garden waste were filled, the mission was complete.

We were rewarded with a welcome cold drink from Mr and Mrs D, who were happy that we managed to complete the task. High 5's all around.

Congratulations go to Elle on her first mission.
