What a turnout for tonight's run!
We started as a small sign-up of 6 earlier in the day, yet by 7:10pm there were 13 of us gathered by the shipping container in Meath Gardens awaiting our instructions from task owner Jane.
We wasted no time in heading to every corner of the park, the centre of the park, and the multiple flower borders. Some waited by the tap to fill buckets and vessels; others headed to the canal to try their luck by the water's edge. This, folks, make no mistake, is a workout-and-a-half. Walking, wheeling, lifting, pouring...Aaand...repeat. Lots of times.
It was a very sociable, very useful task. The greenery in Meath Gardens is struggling. Despite the valiant efforts of residents, park-users and a phenomenal community group, young trees, fruit trees, flowers and even grass all look a little sad.
It was well after 8 before we locked up and gathered by the mystical tree (will explain another time) for a stretch. Focusing on a bit of upper body flexibility felt like a fitting end to a thoroughly great evening.
We headed our separate ways: some straight home; some via the Hotel to collect our belongings. Well done everyone. Great work.
Until next time.
