This evening we were back with St John the Baptist church. This time round though we were to clean the inside of the church and kitchen area rather than be outside. The night's are drawing in quickly now so it was great to have the task inside instead.

Mark, our task owner is actually running a community cafe in the church which will be open to all local residents as a place of comfort, company and a cuppa chai so it felt good to be able to help Mark and the team get the inside space spruced up.

Another one fights the dust

Our meet up point tonight was at The Activity centre and our distance was just shy of a mile each way. With plenty to chat about we got the warm up done and dusted and made our way.

On arrival, Mark was on hand to give us Henry, the Hoover and Jay, the cloth.

Whilst Jean and Sandy cracked on with moving crockery in and out of cupboards, Jen and Lauren picked up the Hoovers and got ready to bust the dust.

The church area was actually pretty tidy so we didn’t need to alter much. Jen, being our font of all knowledge managed to get half the area done in around 15 minutes. I helped do the other half so on no time it was done… pew for that!

Lauren did the breakout area which didn’t need much scrubbing and as we already had too many cooks in the kitchen, she came to help us finish off the main church.

Within 40 minutes we had both the kitchen and hoovering done. Love it when a task comes together!

Next week we are at the allotments. Please bring your body lights or a torch.
