For this week's task, we set our sights on a hefty hilly run commute, totalling 10km, to help Leonard Cheshire Disability Service to cut back a newly acquired allotment plot to enable service users to enjoy the space.

After 5km of chattered running, we arrived at the secluded haven set back from the busy main road. An unexpected sanctuary!

The allotment had been neglected during lockdown and was in desperate need of some tending.

Rob and Pete tackled the raised flowerbeds with a fork. Leaving not root unturned. While Kirsty and I opted for the brambles (of the none cocktail variety!)

Along the way, we discovered potatoes, chives, a plum tree and a fair few gnomes.

And Kirsty was victorious in the battle of the brambles!
