in & out before the rain
8 GoodGymers made their way 6.0km to help the St Peter-in-the-Forest Community Centre & Church in Redbridge.
- Monday, 15th of August 2022
- Led by Peter Van Tongeren
With the clouds gathering & darkening, there were some question marks on whether the rain would disturb tonights group run, let alone thunder & lightning when busy in the forest!
Ofcourse the possibility of a few drops of rain did not deter this hardy lot, I think there might not even have been a raincoat in sight!
Linda led a group of walkers to the task at St Peters, with Julia leading a group chasing them down via a longer route - any votes on who won? In a sense all of us lost as well, with the high humidity meaning it was a sweaty walk/run.
St Peter in the Forest is a regular location for both Goodgym Redbridge as Waltham Forest, so there was not much hesitation in what tasks to do when the task owner was unable to attend.
- James & Anit set to work tidying up hedges.
- Hélène & Peter walked up & down watering the planters & rose bushes
- Linda & Aj attacked the ivy growing over the wall
- John & Julia tidied & swept up & got creative with chalk
All too soon it was time to pack up and make our way back.
Note, Linda & AJ were not happy with how they had to leave things behind so they are planning a little community mission to finish off their ivy pulling. Why not pop round and give them a hand this Saturday?
