Latest story featuring Lisa
Our new trainer for GoodGym Stockport
Lisa completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Lisa was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
Beautiful sunny morning at the Garden House, Marple. Lisa and I, along with a very dedicated team of feathered friends!, transformed the raised beds from a carpet of weeds to fresh soil. One large hen ‘Beatrice’ with a healthy appetite for worms became our close companion! We mucked in and topped it off with some fresh manure all ready for planting up! Was great to see so many young families enjoying the nature and farm animals there. Nice! : )
The Garden House aims to provide a safe space in the Cheshire countryside for families and local organisations, and in particular, groups and charities who cater to children and young adults with complex needs.
They also work tirelessly to raise awareness of green issues, as well as animal welfare and mental health and relies entirely on donations from visitors, organisations and local businesses. As it covers around 27 acres of land, running adjacent to the River Goyt, there is plenty of green space to be maintained.
We'll be digging, weeding and cutting shrubs back, and be rewarded with a hot drink in their community cafe!
