A new task no less

31 runners formed two groups this evening to head down to Limehouse to a brand new task!

Although we've visited the Town Hall before, this was our first time tasking it with the fabulous Limehouse Town Hall Consortium Trust, a fabulous charity aiming to return the hall to full & sustainable community use.

With our brilliant task force already lined up to co-lead and navigate the group safely down to Limehouse, Bryon set out with Chris and Kat to take the faster runners off, while myself, Lieke and Liz led the remainder of the runners, beautifully navigated by Lieke, along the quietest route!

We arrived to a brilliantly organised task from task owners Brian and Sam!

Plenty to do on arrival...

Groups were soon dispatched throughout the building to:

  • Move cupboards and other bulky items around the building
  • Remove a large panel in the theatre
  • Scrub the vast wrough iron staircase
  • Fill wall holes on the ground floor
  • Clean the silk screen tub in the slightly scary basement

The time absolutely sped by, and it seemed no sooner had we arrived and got our kit ready to work were we assembling for picture-posing on the magnificent staircase.

But we needn't be sad - we're returning to this absolutely terrific task next week where we'll be led through another big variety of jobs, not only helping out this wonderful institution, we'll also be having a whale of a time while we do it again. THANK YOU ALL!

A big warm welcome to our first time runner, Timur - what a joy to have you on board, what an asset you were. Thank you! And hope to see you very, very soon.

What's coming up

  • On Sunday, our amazing Task Force, Leo & Isabelle are leading the third of our Junior parkrun volunteering collaborations - more details and sign up are here.

  • While next Monday, we return to the Town Hall, for more fun in this splendid location, so come and join in if you can.

Until then, banish any thought of January blues: stay warm, run if you can, stay in touch... Just have a brilliant week, and we'll catch up soon.

Petite in frame you are Laura, but you certainly 'Tower ' your run group. It's always fabulously funny to tour with GGTH.
Thank you for starting my working week with laughter.
