A little drizzle wasn’t going to stop a fab 32 runners hitting the pavements for some furniture and moss removal.

We started off welcoming new runners Jessica and Hannah as well as Effie who has just moved back to London from former Lambeth twin area Liverpool. It just so happened that it was her 50TH GOOD DEED, and she happily adorned herself with the cape of good hope.

Nice one Effie!

We then set sail with Samantha and George leading a longer route and the rest of us taking the direct route to Brixton Road Youth Centre.

When we arrived, we quickly moved some tables and filing cabinets into the blue lockup or the other one.

Then we began the satisfying task of scraping up moss, pulling up weeds and piling up the bags. Unbelievably there were still some leaves left to bag, having already cleared loads on previous visits. I'm sure we'll be back soon enough to do even more...

Once there was a big pile of bags, we stowed the tools and hit the road, mixing up the pace with some Fartlek.

Next week we're back at the Portico Gallery to sort out the Feast tables and it's pub week aaaand St Patrick's Day! Sign up here ☘️🍻
