8 Goodgymers spent a pleasant evening pruning lavender at Charter House.

Joe and Lil took a walk there, while the rest of us ran and the tools were ready for us by the Purnells cafe to take over to the car park where the beds of lavender were. We were having a lovely time chatting whilst de-heading the purple tops finding lovely metallic rosemary beetles along the way (apparently very common in this plant at this time of year). We finished the first bed with time to spare so started on the next one which Laura was determined we could get done, she pushed us through and she was right we got the second one done too! Fab work you lot!

Hope you all have a great nights sleep after inhaling all those lavender fumes.
