We're halfway through our leg of long runs which cover the further points of the borough that we can potentially reach on a group run. And on Monday evening everyone was looking strong on those hills.

It was a surprise what we'd be doing at Seniors, we were hoping for some sorting in the basement to see what gems we could find but there has been a delay with the storage boxes so that'll be a job for next time we visit Senior's.

There was one trip down to the basement and Steve made easy work of the wood offcuts that needed to go into the recycling.

The rest of the team split into 2 groups. One group was tackling the radiators in the sun room whilst also removing some tricky raffle tickets from down the back of the radiator. Fire risk averted - thanks Vic!

The second team tackled the cleaning in the cafe, the tables and chairs and even walls needed a good scrub.

It wasn't long before it was time to depart back to Glass Mill for some of us and to the pub for the rest of us.

It was great to see a new face at the group run - hopefully we'll see you at a group run again soon, Peter!

Next week we are heading to Young Lewisham Project to tackle the painting.
