Good Gym volunteers assist with gardening at the Garrison

On Saturday 25th February,  5 enthusiastic volunteers from Good Gym attended for an hour’s hard work cutting back the brambles and clearing the undergrowth at the back of the Church towards Woolwich New Road. They were all repeat volunteers at the Church and enjoy working for us, in part because the results of their labours are lasting and plain to see.

A cup of coffee or tea and some biscuits are a very minor thank you for the work they do for us. We look forward to welcoming their team again on a regular basis in the hope that we can clear the area on which we plan to build the Commonwealth & Gurkha Garden.
