We returned to one of our favourite venues, Cranbrook Community Centre, to assist Janet and her team once again. We knew the garden edges needed tidying - there was a lot of green clutter - but what to remove and what to leave? The wisdom of the crowd won through, with a little help from Janet.

Once again we didn't take a "before" picture, but we all remembered how messy it was before we arrived, and noted how smart it looked at the end, after a vigorous, energetic hour by our fabulous fifteen.

A special welcome to Danya, veteran of GoodGym Richmond who's moved to East London and was keen to carry on the good work at Tower Hamlets.

Thanks Emma for the heading, and for taking some of the pictures (and Janet for the group picture). Also Chris for leading the pre-task run.

We all missed Laura, but she'll be back next week!
