8 Goodgymmers actively made their way to Abbey Park, the lovely sunny weather has made everyone so active! Dave ran from home, after 5 miles yesterday, Stu had ran 10 miles in the morning, Martin came on foot after a great track session the previous night and Ellie came back for her 2nd Goodgym session and she ran to the task! Amazing especially for someone who has just started running, taking on a 3 mile round trip, keep up the brilliant running efforts.

We all walked over the park to the Woman's Aid Leicestershire Reflective garden, the aim this evening was to gently weed and tidy the garden being careful around the beautiful flowers that had appeared from the bulbs planted at the start of the year. There were quite a few seedlings from the above trees that needed moving to give the flowers in the garden the best chance for the garden to look inviting to passers by and anyone in need of help from Woman's Aid with their contact information on the bench.

Lovely idea that Ellie decided some of the saplings were joining her for her run home where she planted them in a pot to give them a new life, keep us updated on their progress what a lovely idea best of luck.

We had the tamest Robin come and see what we were up to, pleased we helped him find a few worms. In no time the garden was looking much tidier ready for the Woman's Aid Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday. Weldone team fantastic effort all round, lovely photo's by Mel.
