What a wonderful morning spent helping at the Corner House project. It was great to see the gang from GoodGym there, helping to clear the huge wall of Ivy. We were all given tasks to do, to help the amazing team of women, who have dedicated their own time to help to create a beautiful garden. Looking forward to going back to help next month.

It was a nice sunny morning indeed, ideal for a little session at the Cornerhouse and almost perfect for Pauline's first GG session! (give her a cheer)

The main target was the amount of ivy growing over the top of the wall, with Jan (one of Marians team) going up the ladder while Sharon tackled it from the ground. Pauline & Valerie got stuck in digging over & emptying (leave) composting bins. Blink and over an hour is gone, several compost heaps moved and a mountain of ivy packed into green waste bags and additional huge bag.
