We were back at Papa's last night to help out tidying up around the place!

The evening started well with a couple of returning faces after a long time away with both Emily and Charlotte joining us, it was lovely to have you both back!

We changed up our introduction routine by having a story caterpillar - where each runner adds a sentence to the runner before - and in the end we ended up with a tale of exploding bikes, giant peaches filled with cookie balls, stubbed toes and getting stuck in traffic, what a day.

After a quick couple of kms loop we arrived back at Papa's to discover new locks on the gates meaning AA Yianny didn't have the new combination but we were able to get in to get our tools via the netball courts and a few phone calls later and all was sorted - including letting out a couple who had been marooned in the park :0)

Joined now by Marie-Noelle and Paul we set to work clearing along the railings and litter picking to spruce the place up and we also brought out the hand lamps for the first time - fare thee well British summer.....

Thanks to all and see you at the next one.
