Report written by Bethan Critchley

After 6 of us took on Fulham Palace parkrun this morning (well done all!), a group of 12 goodgymers from across London assembled and wandered over to Fulham Palace to meet senior gardener Pete. After a quick round of introductions and welcomes (especially to Katya who joined us for her first ever goodgym good deed today), we headed round to the back of the palace to a familiar tree where we had been tasked with weeding earlier in the year. This time, our job was to rake up the fallen leaves and then plant 1000 crocus bulbs. Tidying up the leaves took no time at all, and we had chance for a little break whilst Pete scattered the bulbs before we got stuck back in planting them. We chatted away as we worked, and debated whether we should plant a GG logo with the crocuses... we decided we'd behave ourselves and resist temptation - how unusual for goodgymers!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚

With 12 pairs of hands we had all the bulbs planted in less than an hour, so for the remaining 30 minutes we turned our attention to raking weeds up from beneath another tree nearby. In general we felt we had been much less successful at this task, but weed given it our best in the little time we had. No doubt Pete's apprentices or other volunteers will take care of finishing the job soon.

We grabbed a group photo before heading off for a well-earned coffee together. Thanks everyone for a great task this morning, we made light work of the planting! Hopefully see some of you back here next month - keep your eyes peeled for a listing!

All credit goes to Michelle for today's pun report title - excellent work ๐Ÿ‘

Rake Me To Church

Tue 26 Oct

Report written by Lucy Hill

It was a sure sign that summer was well and truly over - an evening task in the dark, and the falling of the leaves. That didn't stop five of us from raking up some good deeds!

We welcomed [Alessandra] for her first good weed ever, and were joined by Biscuits and Susannah, plus Lucy and Helen.

Father Tim had left us some guidance for the night, with our first task being to weed around the side of the church. Helen and Alessandra started at one end, with the rest of us at the other. Armed with black bags and head torches, we weeded away. Meeting in the middle, the job was done, and we moved onto the front church lawn.

Alessandra, Susannah and Helen carried on weeding and sweeping up leaves that had made their way into the flower beds. Lucy took on rake duty, clearing the fallen leaves from the lovely clean lawn, and Johnny took on his wife's favourite job and followed round with a big black bag!

The third and final part of the night was around the vicarage... More autumnal leaves to be cleared, more sweeping and raking and more black sacks filled.

Weed done an unbeleafable job, and Tim was absolutely swept away with our hard work.

Welcome Alessandra, and hope to have you back with us again!

'Lovely task helping the church in getting rid of weeds and leaves in the church garden. Great group of people there, nice to find out more about Goodgym too! The church vicar was pleased with the work done! We also had a mini tour of the church at the end, it was nice to learn something about it.'
