A new task venue for us tonight

Another Monday - a new venue. Tonight we went to another Guild Care project - a nursing home called Caer Gwent. It offers 24- hour expert nursing care, supporting individuals with complex health conditions, particularly focusing on palliative (i.e. end of life) support.

We had been asked to work on the long sweeping drive entrance to the home with a much needed weed and tidy.

it was lovely to welcome back Paul to reunite withRosalind after they have both been travelling in France. Lots to catch up on!

John took no time at all to get on his knees and down to weeding and tidying. Anne got straight on with pruning and weeding whilst having a lovely catch up with Paul.

Paula got stuck in with the same and when Daisy arrived she got straight into debris removal into the green bins.

Rosalind poised on her 99th task did a great job on muti tasking across all the flowerbeds catching up with all the news ! Next week is her big 100 !

With a make shift broom made from foliage Daisy and Anne had a great tidy up before we had a lovely group photo.

Next Monday we are back at Heene Cemetery followed by The Brew House from 7:15 to celebrate Barbara's 200th and Ros's 100th together with my Birthday with a quick drink. All welcome to either or both :)

Have a great week !

I love the concept of getting physically and mentally fit whilst combining it with helping others. I run most days.
