A determined group of GoodGym’s finest met at the Kedleston Community Centre to do Margaret’s bidding in the lush surroundings of the Bethnal Green garden.

Lots of fun was had by all whilst being threatened with inclement weather. It didn’t stop us. We donned our protective gardening gloves and got to weeding, raking and general tidying. Around the halfway point, Margaret exclaimed that we did an excellent job and then indicated that more could be done… that’s the right thing to say to an enthusiastic bunch of GoodGymmers and we happily carried on with our tasks. Various puns were banded about and many poses thrown.

Hats off to Sara who managed to clear masses of weeds under the beautiful red acer tree, Simon who proved a constant good sport at smiling for the many cameras that were turned in his general direction, and also to Laura who not only did plenty of weeding but also showed us how to engage those obliques whilst taking photographs.

Everyone else was pretty marvellous too.

Thanks to all that joined and helped out.
