What a nice pear! 🍐

2 GoodGymers made their way to help an isolated older person in Redbridge.

We arrived pretty much on time, Mr A opened the door for us and kindly allowed us to bring our bikes in for safety. We then went to the garden where a lot of work needed to be done as the path and lawn have completely overgrown but there was a huge pear tree with lots of fruit that sadly weren't ripe yet!

Mr A was a little bit nervous letting us mow the wet grass but after a while we got into a rhythm of cutting the grass with a lawn mower that needed to be cleared every min and clear the path with a spade. Both activities were a good upper body work out, so after 45min we finished leaving Mr A with a nicely cut garden, a path that was reclaimed and we even managed to clear some of the front garden!
