We had a host of activities going on tonight. With walkers, runners and those driving direct to the task all by 6:15 so we could safely get the allotment plot turned over whilst we still had light.

Mehdi, Hamid and I arrived first and got all the tools out whilst the light was on our side.

Jen was our first walker with a sustainable travel plan of walking, trains and walking again.

Soon followed by Clare and Peter.

Next we had an influx of runner vs cars! with the much awaited arrival of Ricky for his 95th task! (not sure why I thought it was your 99th) Good to see you!

Dr and Kam arrived just as a little difference in opinion was taking place. Good job that Savi is a voice of reason.

Just Gimme the Light

The plot we were clearing needed digging over, shearing of the sides, re positioning the blue tarpauling and sweeping the sides to make it all look tidy. We actually managed to get it all done before the day light faded but with the extra light from our lights. Great effort from everyone.

Hot Potatoes

Sarah had kindly offered us some potatoes which the Home Start team had recently dug up. We were boiled over to get them.

Fitness Fun Mash up

As we had a mixed method of arrivals today I thought the team might like a mini PT session using dumbells, kettlebells and med balls!

With deadlifts, woodchops, halos, bent over rows and a killer lunge set! All steamed up! I think the team saute enjoyed it?

We have now finished our monthly sessions at this allotment until next year.

Next week we have an indoor task at St Mary's Church on Church St. Back to normal meet up time of 6:30pm at Upton Court Park.
