Another visit to the Marlpit community garden for GoodGym saw us put to work raking grass cuttings to be used as mulch for trees. We welcomed Alison to her first mission and we soon started clearing cuttings from the orchard. Mark from the garden bet we wouldn’t manage to finish cleaning the first half of the orchard, taking up the challenge we managed that.... and back again..... and the section above...... and the next field..... and then finished with the edges of the flower meadow. Things were livened up by the baby frogs we uncovered with Sam, Elizabeth, Andy and Liz particularly good at finding them. As the light faded we finished up leaving a happy gardener and some startled but unhurt frogs!

I'm the Trainer for GoodGym Norwich. I love running and have led a lot of running groups in the Norfolk area, none as fun as the GG family.
