Once again GoodGym assisted with the monthly tidy-up of Penn Road Community Gardens.

Sevan and Kash came all the way from Ealing, John walked over from Highbury Fields Junior ParkRun, while Ines arrived from the other side of the road - for her second task at this site. I always thought leaves dropped in the autumn, but here we are at the end of July and the paths in the gardens were full of them! It was a major task to rake up the leaves and sweep them into bags, for composting.

After more than ninety minutes work, Sevan and Kash headed to a birthday party, Ines walked back across the road and John headed for Switzerland! But we’ll be back next month…
