As the temperature rose, we were delighted to find we had the perfect task ahead of us in Wandsworth last night - washing the mobility buses at Age UK!

The temptation of a nice cool hose down meant that we sped through our warm up and question of the week, which in honour of all the recent Taylor concerts, was music themed.

We were Swift in our run up to the day centre, which is used by local elderly people for socialising, classes and other important resources. The first job was to connect the hose, which was soon being used to cool us down. Freshly watered we had to Shake it Off, before getting on with the various tasks.

We divided into groups to tackle weeding, washing buses, cleaning windows and watering the new flower beds. Luckily everybody got their chosen job, so there was no Bad Blood between us.

After 40 minutes of hard work we were done, but rather than spending the rest of the evening staring into Blank Space, we headed off to the common for our fitness session.

Using Paul's special commemorative coin, we gambled on either head or tails for various exercises. The frogs were done in true Style, the final jumping jacks completed All Too Well. Great effort everybody!

On Thursday we have a community mission close to Tooting tube that is looking very quiet - could you spare an hour to help a charity which supports adults with learning difficulties?. Would love to see you there! It could be a task that is Taylor made for you....

Don't forget that next Monday is our regular trip to Doddington garden followed by the monthly social - sign up here!.
