We enjoy working with GoodGym and would like to keep working with them for as long as possible! They have helped with cutting off the grass, planting flowers, ploughing the flower beds, litter picking and many other tasks. The runners are very passionate about their work which makes the results look effortless.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for clearing our pond area on Wednesday evening. It has helped us out a great deal and it will make a big difference to the children's learning as they can access their pond area once again

Lawford Mead Primary School, Chelmsford

Huge thank you to you and the runners who came to help clean up our alleyway on Saturday. Valiant efforts on the blackberry bush meant that it is now clear and we can cycle up the lane without fear of brambles. Love to all at GoodGym, thanks again.
