Louise completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Louise was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.
Louise is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.
Despite the wet weather forecast it started dry for the 16 keen good gymers who descended on the park view estate for gardening tasks. As usual we were greeted by Catherine and Liam, who entertained us with some rude songs ;-)
Becs and Boris stayed in the nursery replanting chilli seedlings into pots. Faye, Sasha, Nina and Louise weeded the wild flower bed at the front of the estate whilst Charlotte and Heather combined weeding with planting lavender. Boris and John worked in a border flower bed, adding in compost and planting lavender whilst the two Jennifers and Amber weeded a wild flower bed and planted cosmos seedlings and Stephen dug up raspberry shoots that has escaped out of their designated area.
After a good hour of work some of the team moved on to the blu ivy cafe on the canal for a socially distanced coffee and chat.
Our Parkview regular Stephen heads up this morning's delightful activity of helping Catherine of Parkview Estate plant two large trees, and tend to the wildflower and pollinator beds we helped plant last year.
What you will be doing
- You will be divided into multiple small teams, spread out all over this large estate, under the watchful eye of Task Owner Catherine, with young son Liam project-managing. Prepare for a lively, laughter-filled task.
Always a fun, energising time, this morning's activity is guaranteed to leave you satisfied, sweaty and smiling!
