Tonight we took part in a true community relay. We picked up where the Prince's Trust had left off.

We were cleaning windows inside & out (cue Vicki & Val doing their best George Formby impressions), as well as trying to remove the stickers from the previous owner's branding. We were also applying damp proof paint to some of the walls and using problem solving logic skills to take down the gazebo.

Nicole also asked us to give some feedback on what we think can be done in the space.

Plenty of effort was put into every job and we left them with cleaner windows and fewer stickers to remove. We also got a cup of tea/coffee to keep us going. The Prince's Trust volunteers take up the baton again tomorrow morning!

They have an indoor picnic on Saturday, so please spread the world to any folk who live around the Cosham area.
