We started the session with a good old warm up and a jog - it was great to see so many goodgymmers getting out on Monday evening to do good and get fit!

Our run took us through greenman roundabout past whipps cross, all the way round to eagle pond to finish at Snarebrook Station where Marian from Wanstead Community Garden was ready to put everyone to work! We pulled off a lot of ivy, sowed down some dead mini-trees and cleared a lot of leaves! Great evening to catch-up whilst getting a workout through gardening for a good cause!

Afterwards, we raced it back to Wanstead House, making it overall 5.5km run - great job everyone!

Cool down and chat to finish the evening was just what the doctor ordered for a great start to the week!

A special shout out to Cedric for completing his 10th Good Deed!
