Last night 6 members ran to Valley Park to assist Unique Roots, tidy up the communal area around the Peppermint centre.

When we arrived Pam from Unique roots was already at the site unloading the tools from the boot of her car. It wasn't so long ago since we last visited the site, however due to the mixed weather nature seems to have taken over and reclaimed the area.

With a smile on their faces and a spring in their steps the group tackled the task at hand. Though small in numbers we made a great effort in mowing the grass, weeding the beds and trimming the rose bush that had grown out of control.

It wasn't just weeding and cutting grass, Pam also had some plants and veg to be planted which, Ingrid and Abby planted.

Before we knew it the time for us to down our tools had come and it was time for us to undertake that 3.5km run back to solutions.

Next week, we'll be going to Wandle Park, to assist friend of Wandle Park, fancy joining us? Sign up here.
