Kash and Sevan arrived in Walpole Park to find that a mini-transformation had taken place overnight. Thirteen photo display boards had been put up along the main path ready for Ealing Wildlife Group's photo exhibition.
In addition to the EWG volunteers, Park Ranger Jamie was there as well as Steve, the videographer. Jamie had been in the park late last night setting up the boards in the dark, while Steve was documenting the whole event for EWG.
"Steve, I'd like to be blonde, I'd like to be at least 5'8" and I'd like to be slim. Can you manage that?" - task owner, Emma
John and Emmanuella arrived soon after and the team learned that their task was to cover the photo panels that were being put up. The goal was to keep the winners of the photo competition under wraps until the grand reveal at 1pm. Kash and Sevan got started, covering kites, mice and moths in black bin bags.
It turned out that covering the photos was a 2 person task, so Emmanuella and John were deployed to commandeer chairs and tables in the Rickyard café, where the reception would be. They were asked to pounce as customers vacated their seats and hold the tables. This was ideal for John as he could grab a coffee and have a seat after parkrun. Emmanuella however was expecting to do something a bit more energetic to earn her good deed. Nevertheless, slowly they managed to take control of the whole area, allowing it to be closed to the public and prepared for visitors.
