Chloe Smith MP visits the group!

A few weeks ago the MP Chloe Smith visited the Green Gym on task on Mousehold Heath in recognition of Ernie’s award from the Prime Minister - the Point of Light award for outstanding individual volunteer! Ernie received a letter from David Cameron saying 'You are the heart and soul of the Norwich Community Green Gym. By getting your team of volunteers involved in conservation work in the outdoors you are providing them with opportunities to improve their fitness while taking care of the green spaces in their community.' Chloe Smith also added her congratulations on receiving the award and that Ernie's commitment to supporting community members is heart warming and such an asset to Norwich.
