Well our evening didn't quite turn out as expected but we made the best of it none the less. It was as lovely as always to see Donna, Emily & Maurice as ready and willing as always, despite the wind and the threatening rain.

After a few directional problems of finding the venue of tonight's task (a very tucked away block of flats that isn't easily visible from the road in the dark), we eventually found one another!

Tonight's task was intended to be doing some gardening for the residents of the flats but unfortunately, due to a family emergency, the task was cancelled. No problem - that wouldn't stop us from doing some good in our local community.

We split into two groups this evening - a walking group and a running group and we set off together for our evening exercise!! We took in some lovely Christmas decorations along the way as well as having a good natter and putting the world to rights as we always do.

Back together again, we collected our litter pickers and bin bags (which have now taken up residency in my car boot) and off we set onto the streets of Crewe once again to sprinkle some litter picking magic upon them!

It wasn't quite what we had planned for the evening but we still had a really enjoyable time together while collecting some decent amounts of rubbish! We didn't escape the rain but we did make a difference in Crewe tonight and that definitely can't be a bad thing.

I promise there will be no more litter picks this side of Christmas!!

Thanks for being amazing as always xxx
