Join us for a post task brunch after the Christmas Tree task
After mounting the trees for the festival and decorating the GoodGym Christmas tree we will be heading across the underpass to The Erith Exchange which is located in the Old Library for a bite to eat.
If you are planning on coming along sign up below as we are hoping to reserve a table
GoodGym Bexley were out in force this morning working alongside the Friends of the Old English Gardens in Danson Park to help keep the gardens looking neat and tidy.
Some of us got to work weeding, clearing fallen leaves and turning over the soil in two of the flower beds.
Others formed a wheelbarrow convoy collecting wood chippings from elsewhere in the park and bringing them back to the gardens for future use.
Congratulations to Johnny who completed his 250th parkrun before coming to the task.
And a big welcome to Caroline on her first GoodGym event. Weed love to see you back again with us soon!
GoodGymers Peter, Johnny, Sarah, Liam and Martin joined the super-friendly volunteers from the Friends of Danson Park to work on the woodland walk.
Our first task was to move logs from piles where they had been left when the Council cut down some trees, and position them along the edges of the path to make the route more defined. A log-ical way to reuse the cut wood!
Then we shovelled wood chippings into wheelbarrows and ferried them to the path where we raked them out to make a springy new surface to walk on. We got into a wheel-y good routine and completed a longer stretch of the path than originally planned.
The end result looked fantastic and it was very rewarding to hear the compliments and thank yous of other park users as they walked along the renovated trail.
Afterwards we were treated to hot drinks by the manager at the local pub, Danson Stables ☕☕☕. Very kind.
What a great way to spend a Saturday morning! There's still more of the path to be tackled and hopefully GoodGym Bexley can help make it happen!
