Today we started off with five from our start location but we knew by the time we got to the task our numbers would multiply as others had sent messages to say they would meet up at the task.

After a little nattering finding out about our weekend, walking holiday and period of sickness that made some unable to join us on previous weeks, we headed over to Ruskin square car park for our warm up before setting off on our jog to the task.

Today we were heading over to Tunstall Nursery School to help with tidying up the playground and surrounding area. As we approach the gate we could see someone running toward us in a red t-shirt, to our surprise it was Magda, she has been out injured for some time so seeing her back jogging was welcomed. After greeting her we all went inside the nursery where Jane was awaiting g our arrival. She informed us of the various tasks she had for us to do, there was a huge tyre that needed to be moved, the area for their wild school was overgrown and needed to be cleared, the playground needed to be swept.

As we set about working on the various task we were joined by Ros, Nicola and Karim, it was just a passing visit for Karim as he lives local and although currently under doctors orders of no exercise, he missed us so the took a stroll down to say hello and fill us in on how his operation went before heading back to his sick bed.

While speaking to Jane we found out that this was going to be her last time with us at the nursery as she was retiring, her plans in no particular order was to visit friends she has not seen in over 20 years, visit Iceland, Scotland and Ireland while also trying to find herself a nice little place to call home in the South West of England.

We finished all the task that was there for us bid Jane our farewell and headed back to solutions.

Don't forget to sign up for next weeks group run here.
