Lovely day for a lovely task!

Arrival Linda and Julia and John cycled to the session and were the first ones to arrive. Suzy got lost and took a long time to find parking space but thankfully found us - we set Suzy a challenge to walk or run for the next session!:) We are not going to mention how late Raymond was.... ;)

Task Francis met us with all the tools and had a new task for us - to 'find' the paths in the memorial garden that has been left to nature way to long. We weeded and evened out the paths and also weeded the beds. The weather was very summer-like, birds were chirping - including a very loud woodpecker, conversation touched on many different topics and not going to lie some of them were pretty random :)

1st ever Community Session!!! Suzy did her first community session - fantastic!!! Well done Suzy!

100 good deeds This was Ramon's 100th good deed and Julia was hitting 100 later in the day! Great achievement!

Well done everyone - great company for a great task in great weather!
