I had a really fun filled lovely evening spent with my GG volunteers - finally some warm weather combined with a beautiful courtyard garden and great conversation and banter amongst my small but very mighty team.

Fresh from Bristol ( for £11 ) Ricky came along to share his pride. it was lovely to be able to wish Ricky congratulations in person for this Bristol half marathon PB result. Huge kudos Mr Rickster and enjoy being off the wagon for a few weeks before the Worthing 10k in June ( just not too many shared beers with John !!

Gillybean was her usual amazing self. Fresh from her cat nap ( literally she napped with her cat! ) she led the task tonight. Her knowledge and experience with gardening are 2nd to none and I'm always super grateful to have her steer on what to do and what not to prune!

Finally we have our unique, loyal and one of the nicest humans I'm privileged to know ... Babs Barbara who always brings energy, humour and a degree of risqué to every task.

The reason for the pun? There was an extensive amount of pruning right to the stump of the unknown palm with a plethora of black berries ( which Gill said were bad, so we got rid of)

Thank you all - this evening made me realise just how much I believe in GoodGym.

See you all at the next task - its this Wednesday 17th May at Kamelia Kids - lets try and make it as special as it was tonight!

I love the concept of getting physically and mentally fit whilst combining it with helping others. I run most days.
