On Tuesday myself and Liz ran 6.6 km to St Augustine's to help out in the community garden. When we arrived Ingrid had already started in the task, however Sue briefed us on what she'd like us to do. This was the smallest group we've visited with and when we were told there was a Ton bag of wood chips to move to the back of the church, I thought to myself we were in for a long one. That wasn't the case as we soon had a system in place and within a wink of an eye we had emptied enough of the wood chips for two of us to be able to lift it to the back and spread the remainder under Sue's watchful eyes, ensuring we put it in the right place. After completing the task we said our farewells and myself and Liz ran back to East Croydon.
