After a heavy downpour throughout the night and morning, it was decided that our task would be postponed for a week. The planters that we were to empty had started to look more like ponds ready for the birds.

Unfortunately, there had also been an accident on one of the major roads which had led to it being closed off, and on the night that WALES are playing football to boot!

With a couple of drop outs - totally understandable, we met in two groups again. From Sport Wales in the Park, a lovely run through the lovely green grounds and over to our next group outside Big Moose cafe. We then made our way to our final destination - Adamsdown Primary School.

Instead of our advertised task, we were going to make the school's perimeter that little bit cleaner for the kids and teachers. Litter pickers in hand, and what was our last few bags we got to work and it was a delight. Along the way we found milk - at least it was once upon a time, there was a till, a pair of jeans (good night had there) and even managed to get a few bits through the fence of the school. We finished over in the playground, just a quick tidy up there to make it clean and that little bit safer for the little ones.

5 bags dropped off and it was time to head back and have our monthly social and food.

Join us next week, when we return to the School once more and tackle our actual task.
