Why is February always our coldest, wettest, snowiest and now stormiest month? And we get an extra day this month just to feel even colder! I think we will all need a Feb-BREW-ary after tonight’s run.
Well done to everyone who did brave #StormCiara… it was certainly a chilly night but luckily the rain didn't stop play.
A few of us met up earlier tonight than scheduled to help Erin with the second focus group she needed for her university dissertation. Great to be involved in this and to help a fellow runner/student with their work…if only we could of stayed all evening chatting!
As we had a slightly longer run out to Wexham we did all our formalities in a Flash so we could Vanish to the warmth of the Parish Hall.
On arrival, Mabu and Ifthikar gave us an overview of the task…another clean sweep and mop was required.
In our usual highly organised fashion we got to work:
In a Flash…Erin had Dettol-ed the hall floor and Naomi had Viakal-led all the germs in the upstairs kitchenette area
Sara swept and Sandy stroked - the floors in the downstairs hall
Chris Cif’ed at everything he did tonight – nice to see you back Mr G! It’s been a while! Whilst Jen Jiffed the upstairs hall floor clean
Sut snapped as our machine Roisin broke the bucket…
There's a hole in my bucket dear Liza , dear Liza
Emily flashed! And got the crappy end of the stick! Well done Emily for getting stuck in!
And Mabu used all his Mr Muscle with that mop without a handle!
What a bunch of storm troopers we have in Slough! Totally giving it heart tonight in our blue suede shoes. Well done to everyone for their efforts tonight. 45 mins in and we were done. Cake was consumed. Shoe photo's were taken. Back to base was the next task (and it was colder and windier than ever!...is it March yet??).
There are a fair amount of community missions being raised (or soon to be raised), over Fridays; Saturdays and Sunday’s…please do have a look to see if you can help in any way
