Tonight 7 Goodgymers ran 3km to help support a new community space - Milton Close Wildlife Garden.
It was our first time here, at the start of a new project which is really exciting.
The task was clearing weeds and shrubs that were largely overgrown, to make space for a perennial meadow and a wild flower meadow.
We worked as quickly as we could to fill 7 bags while the night was getting darker.
The next steps for this space will be a planting a selection of bulbs - bluebells, tulips, daffodils, crocuses, grape hyacinth and camassia amongst others.
And we will be back next week to continue the preparation for this!

Beth Tyler has done their first good deed with GoodGym.
Beth 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.

Tonight 17 GoodGymers ran 6.5km to support the conservation at Mousehold Heath.
Mousehold warden Will lead us to the areas needing work, so we split into 2 groups and started pulling up bracken.
Will pointed out areas we have visited before, that showed signs of less bracken and more heather growth and also encourages more insects and wildlife. So tonights task will hopefully go a long way towards continuing this conservation work.
After 50 mins of hard work in the warm weather, we headed home with another job well done!
