What a turn out!

Great to see so many people out at the start of the year.

Big welcome to Rose who came along to her first group run, hope you enjoyed it and will be back for more soon Rose!

Also, big congrats to Curly Cat for reaching her 50th good deed, she had the honor of donning the now customary bow tie that she wore with poise and prestiege.

This weeks task took us through some more urban environments and even past a car crash as we were running (we do like to turn heads). Nice one to Steve and Eugen for being witnesses/peace keepers!

We met with Sustrans Simon at his lock up where the tools we get to use on the regular are stored ready for our and other Sustrans volunteer activities take place. Simon thought it would be a great idea to thank the local community for hosting the tools their by clearing up a bit of the surrounding area. So we got to it, collecting much rubbish and some gems such as a £20 note which will be donated by Simon to Sustrans and also some questionable looking dools - see photos...

We also helped assemble a new bicycle trailer for other Sustrans volunteers to use to help upkeep the network and made a start assembling some storage shelves for the lock up.

After downing tools and thanking Simon we took in Church/Lecture theater to do some paired activity where one person would run around the church whilst the partner got 10 squats in. 2 rounds of this each and we headed home for stretches and drinks at the Showroom.

Until next week, happy running! :)
