The clan gathered at Print House, boosted by the return of Hils, Simon and Graham. We discussed 'party tricks', and if anyone had one. Rosa's hand shot up, an experienced and proficient drink-downer in years past. Simon can play a right handed guitar with his left hand, which when you think about it is pretty impressive. Hils' banjo skills seemed a no-brainer, for everyone but her modest self. Graham and I can do weird things with our abdomens, he can push his out, as he demonstrated willingly, I can pull mine in whilst contracting the stomach muscles. The double act you never wanted to see, coming to a theatre near you...

We arrived at Up Garden with Kev and Shaz awaiting us there. Nice to see a few others from the community joining in too. We got straight to work, clearing a hidden path of brambles, logs, and soil. Making way for some hefty and wonderful sleepers. The rest of the sleepers were stacked carefully, clearing another section they were occupying. A session replete with much digging, chopping, shovelling and lifting. Most certainly accelerating this community hub's grand opening and Suzanne loves you for it.

Next week it's just a short one, Get Out Garden for some gardening therapy and laughs - sign up here

Till next week,
