Today 10 GoodGymers headed to Bedford Fields to start cutting back the Ivy in the trees. The Ivy looks pretty but is actually not good for the trees so the idea is to cut the roots and then we can pull it back once it's died off in a couple of weeks. There was lots to do but many hands made light work and we made a real difference to the area. It was great to see so many newcomers today as well as some people who've been before! Welcome to Chloe, Emma, Freddie, Gab & Jane & great work everyone else!
