This evening might have to go down n Goodgym Oxford annuls as the soggiest task yet! Even before we started we all had rain dripping off our noses!

This was a return visit to Marston Rec to mulch and weed saplings which we helped to plant. Greeted by Alistair and Sylvie, we tried to work as quickly as we could to get all the tasks done before we were soaked beyond our actual skin!

We weeded, card-boarded and mulched some existing saplings and planted some more fruit bushes. At least we won't have to worry about the new plants being destroyed by unusual heat like last year.

After a quick celebratory Viennese Whirl to celebrate the birthdays of Fred and Axelle we dashed off, some of us to run (once you're wet, you're wet right?!?) and some to warm up with burgers and jazzy onsies!
