Today's Group Run was a bit of a moist one. We met at The Bridge House, welcomed (brand new to GG 🎉) Becca, and on a liquid theme, discussed our favourite flavours of soup...

Weeding at the House of Reading...

Our task was at Upper Norwood Library Hub, a pillar of the Crystal Palace community, hosting everything from book clubs to choirs (as we got to experience!). As a non-profit they rely on volunteers to support them, so we'd been drafted in to clear the car park of weeds and do some window cleaning too!

After a brief rain stop under a tree (featuring squats and treesits), we ran through the park to the Library and equipped ourselves with all the gear.

Steve, Nick, Mike and Becca handled all the weeds and brambles whilst Holly and I cracked on with cleaning the windows.

Gardening gloves were no match for these brambles... but we finished up with four bags of foliage and three pretty clean windows.

The run back was littered with puddles to dodge but we made it back and stuck around for a quick bevvy in the pub.

Props to Becca for the pun - What an entrance!
