***Last night we headed to Beaufort Primary School in Goldsworth Park to help clear some raised beds ready for planting vegetables .*

Wayne, James, Lauren, Katie, Kirsty and I met next to the canal to head out for a 3km run to Beaufort Primary School. With Wayne on his bike leading the way and clearing the path. Thank you to James for being a super back marker.

James was determined to get a new fast segment time along the bridge, with Kirsty close behind.

We were greeted by Hannah and Lauren at Beaufort Primary. Lauren a reception teacher at school showed us the task, we were to clear four large raised beds ready to be topped up with new compost and then after the Easter Holidays they were then going to be planted with some vegetables. We all got to work quickly and in no time the beds were cleared, Wayne brought along some tangy treats for everyone, which were enjoyed and much needed by all.

It was then time to head back down the canal. The path had been taken over by lots of toads, they didn't seem to care about being in the way and stopping in the middle of path. So the extra task was to look out for shiny eyes reflecting on the torch. A big well done to everyone for turning up... I know the weather was tempting to turn back around.

Next week we are joining the run company for a litter pick - please the time is slightly early.
