Bromley group runs are back! They're on a different day for now and there's a new AA (hi👋) but we're back doing good in the places that need a hand.
Tonight 3 musketeers, met outside the Bridge House, we had a quick warm up in the park and then we hit the road, expanding our route to a nice but hilly 2k.
Our destination was Melvin Hall, a regular for GG Bromley, to do another regular task - weeding! 🌱
Melvin Hall is a community centre in Penge and has only recently opened its doors after a year of closure, so the weeds were tall and taking over the car park.
Equipped with hoes, shears and plenty of black bags, we got to work. Ian and Clare got off to a cracking start clearing the building side of little and large weeds whilst I pulled up a few big weeds round the corner. We gradually made our way around the perimeter until reaching the neighbour's fence. Slightly worried we'd pull the fence down because of all the overgrowing bushes, we got the shears out and tamed the beast just enough to make it look presentable!
After a solid 45 minutes, we bagged up the weeds and hit the road.
Weed did it!
I remembered to take some before photos, but not so many afters... but it looked impeccable 👌
NEXT WEEK we're heading to St John's Meadow to empty some compost bins onto some veg beds! Sign up here!
