Thistle Show 'Em!
11 runners ran 5km to help the Friends of Lordship Rec in Haringey.

This week, the Friends of Lordship Rec needed a team of volunteers to help maintain their wildflower meadow. Caroline and Colette wanted us to pull up fast-growing thistles to allow other species to grow and thrive. They saw the 11 GoodGymmers and thought, “THISTLE do!”
So we ROSE to the challenge, donned our (FOX)GLOVES, and got to work. The idea is for the thistles in that area to be removed once and FLORAL.
We put the PETAL to the metal, and while we were busily working, a rival running group ran past. We shook our fists and thistles at them saying “THISTLE show them!” to get them off our TURF! Just POLLEN your leg - we hope they enjoyed a nice run too.
Unfortunately, Euclides wasn’t able to join the task after a fall on the way to the task and he hurt his (PEO)NIES (his knee)! But we are all ROOTing for him to have a speedy recovery and hope he’s feeling BOUQUET.
At the end of the session, we piled up all our thistles, said goodbye, and headed off in search for home, food, or ping pong tables.
