The task tonight was to clear up litter and de-weed some beds near the Serpentine Walk. When we reached the park we headed to the store cupboard to obtain the necessary tools for the tasks given to us by Anne- bin bags, compost sacks, pickers, trowels and gloves.

We then headed up to the beds, finding some stashes of litter in the bushes on the way there which we cleared up. Arriving at the beds opposite the Joseph Locke statue we set to weeding them before the fading light foiled our attempts to pinpoint the unwanted plants.

When the light had truly foiled our efforts, we headed to the exercise equipment to do a set of upper-body workouts before setting off for a steady run back down the hill to Glasshouse to stretch off.
