Good Gym, Good Job!

We are fortunate to have received help from Good Gym volunteers on 2 occasions, with the promise of more assistance to come. They have removed slabs of stone and surplus bricks from the Church, and are now engaged in cutting back the brambles and undergrowth behind the Church where we are planning the Commonwealth and Gurkha Garden. All power to their elbows! And huge thanks from all of us at St George's the Garrison Church.

If you would like to volunteer to help with the maintenance of the land and garden or helping to show visitors around on Sundays please contact our chair Tim  through
