4 Goodgymers attended the monthly Crouch End Open Space (CREOS) session to help the local volunteers. When I arrived, Guro was already hard at work clearing sticks and leaves from the trenches alongside the footpath. I joined her and together we managed to clear at least 10 bags worth (though we lost count). Around the corner Caitlin took part in various tasks including building a very impressive wall of sticks, to keep people out of the woods. Nico was moving logs from the cricket ground which sounded pretty challenging as he had to avoid hitting rogue children.

As usual the lovely volunteers put on a great picnic of homemade quiche, bread and cheeses (Guro is pictured protecting the quiche from a hungry dog).
