Spring is certainly here! Glorious sunshine and wood anemones (which GoodGymers protected from brambles a month ago) at Grove Farm were the signs of the season of nature blossoming all around.

This Saturday session had two big things to mention:

Madiha's long awaited 50th good deed 🥳 She got to wear the new, glittery golden sash!

and

Lydia's very first session 🐣

All four GoodGymers had a good workout making their way to the session, either walking or cycling up the Sudbury Hill. At the top of the hill, an equally vigorous activity awaited! Ron, the manager of today's project, asked Friends of Grove Farm, Mike and Anna, to arrange some muscle to do some spade, fork and mattock work by the entrance to the park.

We came to dig up trenches, turn soil from the old mounds, remove bramble roots and put aside the rich, clay soil. All of that work was done in preparation for seeding a wildflower meadow in April. We found old bricks, bramble roots and tree roots. Sevan dug out a spoon, and after trying to bend it, both using his arms and the power of his mind, he concluded it had been made of a very strong steel, so he decided to keep the bounty!

After a tea and crisps break, the GoodGymers left Friends of Grove Farm to discover more treasure in the trenches they dug!
