This week was full of nostalgia as we headed back to Bedford Fields. We also took the opportunity to replicate the original parkrun route (1 lap in reverse)

We had a few tasks to do this evening - moving woodchip, removing litter and pulling nettles.

We had just the right amount of work to do within the hour , as we managed to clear the path of woodchip, clean up the litter including a freddo wrapper and rich tea biscuits, and pull nettles almost without well incident (Khara!!)

Afterwards we had time to run around the ridge before it got too dark, and attempted a sunset selfie just as it was disappearing. It almost ended, but thankfully didn't, in a comical fall down a hill full of nettles.

We then returned to HPBC for a well deserved bevvy. Well done team!
