Rachel was joined by Ashley, Pete and Grant - some really fungis that will really grow on you.

The group were back at St Matthew's Church for a spore-itual session helping to clean up some mold and tidy away some important books, arts and crafts items and nativity figures.

Pleased to be inside on such a cold evening, everyone was made welcome with a hot drink on arrival and talk turned to how 2024 was treating everyone so far and what adventures the keen travellers, runners and cyclists of the group had been up to so far. The group made use of a hoover they found to quickly clean mold off some of the books they were cleaning and transporting to their new homes, meaning nobody had to clean the mold off by hand.

David is really keen for the group to return again soon and everyone commented on looking forward to spring and lighter evenings to be helping out in the garden of rest.

Thanks to everyone who made it out on a cold winter's evening when the sofa and a new tv series to binge is always an appealing option.
