Many ggrs joined up with Friends of Parkwood Spring volunteers on our first mission at this lovely green space in 2020. A great turn out - there was just short of 20 volunteers today! Tasks have included: digging over and weeding beds, pruning trees and removing tree guards. A lovely shared picnic and hot drinks were enjoyed by all. Today we welcomed back the lesser spotted GG Tim who has migrated back to Sheffield for the winter, and welcomed GG Jack and GG Claire in their first time volunteering here at this space.

Notably we were joined by little Tom, enthusiastic worm relocater who worked with us all to move the worms we found to safety while we dug and weeded. As we know GoodGym loves statistics - Little Tom said he moved over 5000 worms, this has yet to be independently verified ;)

We hope goodgymers can join us again here next month :)
