Five Goodgymers met to help St Nick's sything the wildflower meadow at Millennium Fields, avoiding the clumps of flowers still blooming. We've had a few sessions now through the summer and it's great to see the progress being made. We welcomed Camilla to her first official task with Goodgym. Once we had created quite a few cuttings Paul raked the sythings into piles which Leanne and Tom loaded onto tarpaulin and took to the compost area. We also became an added tourist attraction to the area, explaining what we were doing to a passing family who came over to find out more about sything and why we were doing it and also about GoodGym and the work that we do. The children had lots of questions about the sythes.
