More progress made on our never ending project painting the sleepers along the towpath for the Canal & River Trust.

Dave heroically stepped back in to his former role to lead the run due to Huw's MCL going kaput as the runners made their way up water once more past Abbey Park.

Once on site, Lindsay and Mel picked litter, Jen and Huw got stuck in clearing the overhanging vegetation from the sleepers allowing painters Stu and Rob to follow behind. Teamwork makes the dream work! Jen left our traditional graffiti this time with an Olympic theme.

Another 30 or so metres done, one big effort required to strip the vegetation and paint the remaining 50m in the coming weeks and this 300m section will be complete!

Great work team!
