Yesterday 7 goodgymmers from far and wide joined us to help out the fabulous crew at Western Road Urban Garden in Southall.

Rain didnt defeat us and once we got there it had actually stopped!

The super 7 had walked, run (some even parkrun) and cycled their way there to join the efforts.

Milly arrived early to meet the attendees and was quickly tasked with rehoming several plantpots.

Main tasks were helping Manny with the Polytunnel, it needed a few repairs and tall people to support in the tricky corners. Sevan headed this up drawing in a crowd for support as people arrived.

The other job was digging away, turning the ground ready for some more future planting. the allotment had been left derelict for years so the thing you can find in that mud- from roman pottery to some very old glass bottles and more. kash and milly got to this with Chris, Michelle, Suz and Louis joining after the polytunnel completion.

We had a well needed samosa break and a cup of tea and set back to work! thanks to the team at western road for always looking after us!

Thank you to crew from Hounslow and Richmond Goodgym for joining!

Please check out other tasks coming up this week for more of the action!
