Tracey joined the YMCA paint party in Alvaston where we freshened up the street furniture; benches, bike stands and bollards. It was great to catch up with Matt, Emma and the rest of the team from the YMCA, and to see their new minibus, the "green machine".

Many thanks to the YMCA team for inviting us along, to the benefactor who kindly donated the paint (rather a lot was needed), and to Steve's Fish Bar, who generously provided a free lunch for each of the volunteers.

Looks like a great session Tracey! I'm intrigued about the green machine and I'm glad you had some lunch provided :)
