Incase we were in any doubt, the weather made sure we knew that the summer firmly behind us! Eight brave (or possible crazy) souls ran and walked to Somerset Point; a council residency for the more mature Brightonians. The last time we helped out at Somerset we were in between heatwaves, so tonight's rain was quite the opposite!

A huge welcome to Sacha (aka Alexandra) who joined us for the first time. Thank you so much for getting stuck in tonight!

We were met by the lovely Roy, who set us up with all kinds of foliage chopping tools and bags. Due to the weather we concentrated on the entrance to the building, clearing the pathways to make access easier and clear away weeds from the paving stones. We must have unearthed the snail population of Kemptown and safely re-homed them away from the path.

With biblical conditions we worked quickly and took our fitness session indoors just in time for the rain to stop 🙄. Tonight we concentrated on abs and gluten to help strengthen our core and keep our posture when running, walking or even sitting at the desk(!) If anyone wanted another go this was the workout we completed.

A huge thank you to all who came out for the first wet task in what feels like years! I hope you all manged to get warm and dry.
