Arriving at our usual spot on a hot, hot summer's eve, we greeted Jess for her first good deed! Ben arrived looking incredibly fly in his new red t-shirt. A wonderful, as always, introduction from Laurie, and we set off running just over 3km on the way there. While we ran we discussed our 5th place at the quiz this Sunday, Joel still adamant dinosaurs are not animals. Must be all those pints he had this afternoon. I did love Erin calling 'big long necky bois' and 'spiky, spiny bois' as her favourite types of dino though.

Arriving at the hub, we started painting the gaps we had on the benches. We worked hard and hopefully they're now ready for the coats of colour in a few months. Thanks for having us Ormiston Families and thanks for arranging all the great tasks, Fay! As we posed for a photo with our handiwork, Sallyann got a well deserved round of applause for reaching her 50th good deed! Still think she should have got on Joe's shoulders for the photo though...

We ran back to base and parted ways in the surprisingly dark (but still warm) evening. Great to meet you Jess and hope you come back!

Some socials coming up to keep an eye out for too!
