Raking around the (floral) clock
5 GoodGymers made their way 9.0km to help the Palmeira & Adelaide Garden Fund in Brighton.
- Tuesday, 12th of December 2023
On a cold and dark Tuesday evening 6 hardy GoodGym friends ran from the Peace Statue on the seafront to Palmeria Square. After establishing that the police officer arguing with some 'louts' was being filmed and we didn't need to intervene, we met with our host Stuart and wandered up to the Floral Clock. To note is that Stuart’s sensible doggy friend decided to stay indoors in the warm rather than joining us to work outdoor 😊! We spent a good hour raking and sweeping and gathering up leaves that had started to overtake the pavement, making it slippery for the locals and visitors. As always, Stuart got fully involved, and we filled up a large number of large garden rubbish bags with wet leaves and general mud and mush.
We managed to clear almost all the way round the small area and the only thing that stopped the mission being fully completed was that we used all the rubbish bags! And, really, the cold started to get into our bones. So, we all agreed that it was just the right time to jog back home to a warm cuppa and dinner!
We managed to clear the worst areas of the leaves, making the area once again pretty and safe.
