The excitement was building - not only was it our 3rd birthday 🎊 and Paul's 100th Good Deed, but we were also meeting at Broome Manor, which according to Darren has the "best beer garden in Swindon". One to experience later on that evening perhaps? But we had others matters to attend to first including a walk/run to Christ Church and then some hard core chatting, weeding and trimming...!

It was a lovely evening; it felt like old times before COVID made an appearance. In fact, it almost felt like we had never been away. The difference we made in just 45 minutes was incredible; the Garden of Reflection looked pristine after our tidy-up and the perfect backdrop to any future wedding at Christ Church. Now did I hear someone say that the vicar's son was getting married the following Saturday?!

We do love visiting Christ Church and we were so pleased to see the wonderful work that had been done on the Rose Garden since our last visit back in 2019. We will visit again soon before the dark evenings set in giving us an opportunity to walk/run to and from Broome again. What a great place to relax, sit and chat on a summer's evening - Gina and Helen clearly enjoying themselves with a cold drink 🍺 while Paul disappeared briefly to test out his golfing skills ⛳️ !

Many thanks to Sam for leading the walk who will also be leading next week's Group Run to the Traverser at STEAM. Check it out here and sign up if you can make it. Hope to see you then!
