We skipped the rain tonight for our pot-holing task supporting Holyport football club. After warming up at the Co-op Jess led the walkers to the meeting point whilst Amanda led the runners. The group met at "the tree" to do a lovely meet and retreat loop of a local housing estate. They must have thought we were bonkers squating in the road at our half-way point but we had a giggle. Louise was having a bit of a Blair Witch moment waiting alone for us at the task so we hopped to it and went to meet her. Claire, Rachel, and Scarlett got cracking shovelling a mountain of gravel from a large pile into the holes on the road. Matthew did some great work wheel barrowing and Sol was relentless at unloading it and ensuring the road was level - great work team!

Mandy opted for the "hands on" approach further down the path whilst Jess and Emily worked so hard raking and smoothing out the bumps in the road. Remarkably, no one fell in any puddles or slipped on the way in or way out.

Our fun fitness session tonight took us all back to our youth with kiddie party games which had everyone in stitches. Jess' team won but the second round was a very close match!

What a fun task this was - lots of "high ho" moments. The road is much more accessible but there is still lots more to be done so this won't be our last session here - and hopefully it won't be the last of the dry ones here either!
