STOP! Handtools time!

1 GoodGymer made their way to help an isolated older person in Coventry.

Ms J really enjoys spending time in her garden but it has become a little untidy and needed some weeding.

I've learnt lots of new skills since becoming a member of GoodGym, unfortunately putting new wire in a strimmer is not one of them! So, this task was completed entirely using hand tools! I weeded around the lavender plants, neatened up the edges and made friends with a few frogs hiding in the long grass and the neighbourhood cat.

One full green bin later and the garden was looking tidier, although after the rain we've had, it'll soon be back! Who needs a strimmer anyway?!
