Although the days are getting longer we are still currently meeting in the dark - so it was a dark evening when we met at The Brain Charity to help them tidy up their outside place. Everyone arrived independently - totaling over 19 miles between us of walking and running. We welcomed new members Sarah and Kleanthis to their first task. Great to have them on the team. The tools had been hidden by the staff of the project so uncovering them we soon set about cleaning and clearing the tarmac and beds of leaves and rubbish. Its a big area and our torches picked out the litter but when we started to rake the laves up more and more litter was also found amongst it. We uncovered little plants that will now be able to grow without having to push through the huge blanket of leaves. Sian found a grid under a mound of leaves and earth which will help with drainage when we next have a big spate of rain. Its amazing how much can be done when everyone works together - 13 bags of leaves and 2 bags of litter and even in the dark we could see that we had made a difference. Huge well done to Harriet Pat and Lucien for completing 5 tasks.
