last night we ran 6.1km in humid temperature to St Augustines' chruch.

Next week Tuesday will be a big day for them and the community garden, they are going to be judged for London in Bloom. All our hard work in the winter months rain/snow makes them very proud to be a contender in London in Bloom. Unfortunately the judges will not get to see the array of colours we witnessed in spring when the Tulips and Daffodils were in bloom, however, Sue and Bill have taken photos of the flowers and plants throughout the various seasons and put them together in a nice briefing for the assessor.

When we arrived at St Augustines' Sue as always had a list of stuff for us to complete, clearing up the wood chips from the car park, cutting down a dead tree and cutting it up into small pieces for the shredder to be turned into wood chips for the flower beds. We did some weeding and sweeping of the car park for its important meeting next week.

Next week we will be running 1km to our litter picking Picnic in Park Hill, bring your friends and family along with some drinks and snacks.
