- Tuesday, 22nd of September 2020
- Led by Swindon runner
With the autumn equinox the day had turned from a morning of warm blue skies to an evening of dark grey clouds, as if autumn wanted to shout, hey look here I am back again! The grey evening didn't stop the team making their various ways back to Ferndale School to follow up on the excellent work of the team the week before.
As before Jane had all the tools ready for us as we set about weeding and brushing up the playground and bike shed areas. Jenny, Teresa, Jason, Gaby and Gina attacked the various raised beds and Richard, Stuart and Charles grabbed the brooms and started to sweep up the leaves and stones that were strewn about. Once again we ploughed on with gusto and the raised beds were soon clear of a mountain of weeds, well we hope they were weeds, as none us really had a clue, where's a gardener when you need one. Gaby found a garden 'fairy' amongst the hops, who was duly placed back in a safe fairy place.
An hour or so later and with the light well and truly fading we were done. Jane was pleased with our efforts and after the obligatory group photo we headed off as the rain began fall, summer suddenly seemed a long way away.
