A nippy November night of activity and community action!

Every year Colchester hosts 'Runners v Riders' on Boxing Day (https://www.entrycentral.com/event/118852) so tonight we had our own little race. The riders won!

Two cyclists and three runners descended on Colchester Foodbank and for the first time since it moved from Moorside there were other people there. Explorer Scouts (https://cnds.org.uk/sections/explorers/) doing their bit for the community too.

With the Foodbank busier we set about sweeping, vacuuming and dusting the front of house and office spaces, with Louise ensuring dusting was done before vacuuming and Bob sweeping and mopping with vigor.

And yes we did find some miniature bottles of Cockburn in an office a tad amusing!

December is on us and next stop Level Best and this: https://www.activeessex.org/essex-activity-awards-2022/
