Our Tuesday group run took us to the Kingston Environment Centre to help Pat tidy up and sort out the community hall. There was a traffic jam which made getting to our meeting point tricky for some - Sevan got a stride on and caught up with our group of runners after we had started running, Tara had to forego the run and meet us there and sadly Jassy was stuck so long on the A3 she didn't make it to the task at all! Hopefully the traffic won't be quite as bad next week.

As soon as we arrived, Pat had written a list of jobs on a chalkboard that we powered through - moving a gazebo, breaking down boxes, sweeping leaves and weeding. Big grey clouds threatened rain but fortunately we didn't get caught in any downpours - even though the garden desparately needed it. The light soon faded as our hour was up but not before a brilliant pink, hazy sunset.

A big welcome to Micheal on his first GoodGym task and to Amreet for her second. Hope you enjoyed the task - see you soon!
