Great turn out tonight with 13 heroes showing up in full force eager to 'muck in' shifting soil at Foleshill Library. Coventry Peace House are helping the library to revive the unloved garden which sadly is unused. They would like to create a community garden that everyone can enjoy.
To begin the revamp the task owner required 4 large bags of topsoil to be moved from the public pathway around to the back garden. There was no messing, everyone got stuck in straight away, shoveling soil into wheelbarrows then wheeling the barrows around and emptying the soil into the garden area. Tom and Laura were waiting with spades at the ready to spread the soil over the grassy section. Chloe meanwhile was working on the edges with her secateurs, trimming back the brambles and weed.
Very impressive how everyone found their roles and worked so well together, getting the job done in no time. It was finished that quick there was even time for us to do a double deed and get some litter picking done :) We didn't even go to the end of the street and we had filled 4 bin bags! We also passed lots of fly tipping which Laura documented ready to notify the council.
As usual you all did fantastic tonight and the task owner was really pleased.
Lots more to be done on the library garden still so watch out for more dates coming soon :)

8 Goodgymers made it out for Myton tonight to deliver leaflets, advertising 2 Myton events going on this year.
5 of us met at Coventry Boys and Girls club then took a steady jog over to Spencer Park where we met 3 more of the group who made their own way there. We split into 2 group to try and cover more ground and ventured around the streets of Earlsdon dropping leaflets and checking out the handsome doors along the way. The pile went down quickly and we managed to shift 513 leaflets in 55 minutes, nice one gang!
On the way back into town we managed some fartlek training between the trees and then a meet and retreat around Greyfriars Green. Following that we took a slow run back to CBGC.
Shout out to James for his 50 good deeds tonight, you can now claim your black belt in Goodgyming :)
