Two runners from Barnet attended Hft assisted living centre to help Holly the volunteer coordinator to build a flat pack herb garden and add the plants. As usual it took a while for the 3 of us to understand the plans but Simone soon took charge and made sure it was built to perfection. It was just then a matter of adding a couple of potted herbs and seeds. The real challenge came when we needed to water the plants as we didn’t have a watering can so after trying a container with holes switched to a large yoghurt pot. Some gaps have been left on the planter for the residents to add there own herbs. Time will tell of our efforts will thrive

Seven GoodGym members gathered to help Martin Primary School in East Finchley with their Forest Paths. We started with a run around the school field and a warmup before filling wheelbarrows with woodchip to distribute along the paths. It was good to be back! Well done for getting active and doing some good!
Well done to those that volunteered that managed to assist Barnet with its vaccination program over the last month.
here is what Jackie had to say
Did my Barnet vaccine shift today. Checking people in on an Ipad at the door. Free Lucozade and hot chocolate. It used to be a running track. Now it's a mass vaccination hub.
Can’t be bad!.. A shot in the arm for Barnet!
