12 of us were lucky enough to spend a good chunk of our Saturday with the wonderful Alex at Weavers Adventure Playground.

There are big plans afoot which have been delayed over the last few months, due to You Know What.

So it was great that a decent-sized team congregated in the playground to be briefed by Alex + Clipboard.

A team of five headed to the decking area to spend a whopping three hours drilling, un-screwing nails and lifting, well, decking to be carted off to the other side of the playground. It was a huge undertaking for Team Deck, namely Eva, Hilary, Claudia, Sarah and Nina.

Meanwhile, Team Tyre (Sree, Isabelle, Emma, Evie and Heather) wasted no time in relocating huge stacks of tyres from the corner of the playground to the football pitch.

And when they'd done that, Team Tyre, with new recuit, Si, proceeded to help dismantle furniture from the skip; drills nails from palets, and lug logs to the skip.

A pretty. good. workout.

It was a long session, along with a little rain, but it also flew by. There was bundles of laughter, and lots and lots of teamwork. WHAT an antidote.

A huge shout-out to everyone this week, but particularly Eva who: flew to the drilling task, stayed until the end, helping out on other tasks AND came up with this week's game-changing pun. As I enquired over the decking, "When are you coming back?"

And obviously Weavers Weekends are now officially a thing, and so back we go next Saturday for more fun and games.

Until then, take the greatest of care.
