Tonight was our first session back at Antz kids at St George’s Church after a little break from the weekly community missions.

Our task was to battle the bushes and give them a little makeover.

With a few hands on deck tonight we got the clippers ready to trim the bushes.

We knew there was an important event happening later so there was to be no added time tonight… at stoppage time I would be blowing the whistle!

Sandy Sterling had the front bush and the clippers until she realized that clippers vs bush was like nail cutter vs grass. So as soon as the trimmer was free she was a woman on a mission!

Gauri Linekar and Jean Kane had the very apt St George’s sign bush! They did an amazing job off cutting that back, even creating a little hide n seek area!

Joe England - our man of the match, having run down was given the biggest bush to trim down. He had the height advantage over some of us!

Pam and I started with the big side bush with Pam using the trimmer for the first half as I held the lead making Shaw no one Trippier over it, then at half time I took over.

By full time we were done! All clippings were collected and disposed off in the green bin where we found Gary’s friend Gareth Snailgate!

Great task and as always great hospitality by Eva and the team.

That leaves me with just one thing to say:

Creating One Match to Emotionally obsess

Over Now

Earn our Next Goal to Leave us with Another Night of Dreams

It's coming home;

It's coming home;

It's coming;

Football's coming home
