*F A B- U - L O U S turnout - Thank you ! *
What a wonderful turn out it was tonight. Honestly it was brilliant!
We had received an SOS call for help from Gwenn in the parks department to help with some raking and fine, tooth comb weeding of an area in the park which has been lined up for some 'Prarie planting' ( perennial ornamental late flowering grasses)
On a very chilly but, thankfully, still evening I feel i need to give a big shout out to each and everyone of ALL the team tonight.

Wrapping it up
Under the watchful eyes of Gwenn and Erin from the town hall we got down to the business of precision weeding and trying to stop any pesky weeds growing again! This involved raking and sifting and bagging the debris.
When it got cold we went off round the park for laps of either running or walking until the cold got a bit too much and 1 hour later we called it a day.
After loading the rakes into the car having a final photo and giving promises to return we all headed off in different directions ( no burgers tonight! )

I love the concept of getting physically and mentally fit whilst combining it with helping others. I run most days.
