Back to our friends at 'Forget me not' cafe who today had been planting some new displays as well as the usual get together. We met in split groups today, those wanting a bit more of a run at Bigmoose a lovely coffee shop on Frederick Street (visit it if you get the chance). Those wanting a shorter distance met at Penylan Library where we ran to pick them up and finally cyclists met us directly at the location.

As we arrived we were met with smiles and tasks ready, outside we needed to get watering everything that we could see. Inside the tables needed removing and putting away, chairs stacking, floors mopped, chairs put back out ready for the Church that allows it's use as a community space and finally vacuum the carpet. Just a few things then...

Ready, Set GO!

It was all hands on as we started, using chairs and tables as weights, then as soon as the floor was clear decisions, decisions.....who's mopping? Jamie took the lead, whilst everyone else had a quick break, but not for long. As soon as floor was free it was time to start putting the chairs back in order, they needed to be in rows and hoked together.

Outside there was some watering action going on, hose pipes and watering cans giving the freshly planted flowers a good drink of water.

Soon enough it was the last push as the vacuum cleaners got to work on the aisle carpets, the ever trusting Henry (Hetty also available) and the strangest sounding machine I think we had ever heard. Once done we had enough time for a bit of a chat and some wonderful treats before heading back.

It was a nice total 6km all in all
