A chilly and beauitfully clear evening saw 13 of us out in force to help continue to clear the overgrowth and brambles at St. Mary's Church.

With lockdown 2.0 looming this was our last Tuesday evening community mission for a while. We were keen to make the most of it with one last go at getting on top of a couple of years worth of overgrowth at the back of the church garden.

It was really lovely to see a couple of new faces in the (socially distanced) crowd too, massive welcome to Marie and Jojo! Hope to see you both lots more in the not too distant future!

Here's what Marie had to say about her first session:

"Absolutely loved my first run. The running group was very thoughtful and considerate to my extremely slow pace 😋 thank you!" - Marie

With Mars beaming down on us (yes, you could clearly see Mars in the sky last night!) we all worked really hard for an hour to get as much done as possible. You could tell that Ben meant serious business when, despite the chill in the air, he stripped down to a t-shirt. We basically had to tear him away from the task!

Excellent work everyone! Hopefully we'll cross paths over lockdown, we will have some essential community missions still going ahead and we'll also have some fun fitness challenges everyone can join in with too.

Watch this space! No literally, click the link and see what's coming up in Ealing!
