On the cool and damp evening of 17 December, sixteen Goodgym volunteers joined with me to pick litter and leaves and remove ivy and weeds from the planted areas of The Boulevard. 21 orange bags were filled.
This was Goodgym’s fifth visit of 2019. I am very grateful to their Team Leader, Conroy Barnett, for his support and that of his colleagues during the year, and also to Tracey Bellamy, the Council officer who supports clean and green initiatives and who provides and collects the correct equipment on each occasion, and who also liaises with Veolia to ensure that the filled bags are (generally) quickly removed.
I am hoping that Goodgym can be persuaded to continue to include us in their schedule for 2020.
