Glorious evening in Bexley tonight. Tonight we were heading out to our friends at The Danson Youth Centre where we've got a lot of gardening work to get done. We had two groups heading there this evening, runners and walkers. The runners set off first. They headed out to do a longer loop whilst the walkers set off on a smaller loop. My idea was that we would hopefully meet up towards the end of the run / walk and arrive at the centre together. Well, let me give myself a pat on the back, it worked out just right...........


With lots to do on arrival we split into two teams again, one group for the front gardens and a group to the back gardens. Oh, we also had an apple tree that needed trimming. I didn't let them trim it back to much though as last year i got some great apples for apple crumble from that tree. With everyone getting stuck in, within 45 minutes the team had swept, pruned, weeded and turned over soil. Yep we are pretty amazing.

With time now running out it was time to start packing up. With so much more still to do we re booked with Joy for a few weeks time.

Guys, thanks so much for another great week. I couldn't do it without you. Big shout out also to Kim who visited us from Sheffield Goodgym, thanks so much for all your help and have a safe journey home. Thats it for this week guys. Make sure you sign up for next weeks run and task, its going to be fun. unyil then, have a wonderful week.
