With the task changing from one to another to something different, it ended up with a little gardening at Wanstead House - removing old leaves from the flower beds.

Thinking to make life a bit easier, a leaf blower was brought along.... but it would have been useful if a battery would have been brought along as well 🤷‍♂️

Of course little hiccup like that won't put off determined Goodgymmers, so armed with hand tools we set to work. Soon enough it turned out that with all the nice plants 'in the way' we were risking doing more damage than good - perhaps we should try the leaf blowing another day instead.

So off we set on a run around Wanstead, giving James and myself the chance to get to know 1st timer Nikheal a bit better - a lovely gentleman - give him a cheer!

Next week we are planning a little community mission with the Wanstead Community Gardeners (log carrying??) followed by a social, so keep an eye on the website!
