Sam arrived at 10:00 to find no one outside Kingswood House. He knew Paulin and James would be slightly late and then found out Maddie (task owner) would be thirty minutes late too.

Still, despite the later start as Aleksandra, Laura, Cat and then Jess showing up. We managed to get all the main task of sweeping and scrubbing the marble floors in the conservatory room of Kingswood House, which would turn into a mental health space with lots of plants.

Sam, Aleksandra and James all took it in turns to use the power washer to spray off the moss on the patio slabs and the difference was very visible.

Throughout the session, Jess kept on giving news that we hadn't heard like the train line from Beckenham Junction to London Bridge would be closed for five months for structural engineering works and limiting volunteering hours by law to 10 hours a week....

Sam took it all in as the truth until Jess revealed at the end, it was all an April's Fool joke...fooled me twice 😜
