A warm welcome to Karla and Mathilde joining us for the first time and a big thanks to Laura for writing tonight's run report!

Once we located a few lost runners we tackled those trees with glee. We cut back unruly growth from the base of the trees on Palmeira Avenue thereby stopping their spread and helping the trees to grow big and strong 💪🏼 . We cleared any litter we came across and generally tidied up the area around the trees. Many of us also discovered the joy of using loppers! That feeling as you seamlessly glide through a bit of branch that had left everyone else stumped (get it?!) Tara’s Mum’s loppers in particular proved a hit. Thanks Tara’s Mum.
