Task details to come

We're still at Papagayo Cafe - we can leave bags but the run leaders or Taskforce will help with this to prevent any unnecessary congregation inside! Please try to minimise what you bring.

We're back to Brondesbury Park station's energy garden - we'll be helping with watering and some gardening tasks. This may lead to a regular community mission to keep watering the garden so do go down and meet the Energy Garden team if this is something you might be interested in. Shorter run, under 3km each way.

A trifling matzo 🍨🫓

Fri 15 Apr
Report written by Danny

It was such a pleasure to meet Mr R today and spend a few hours to help him get set up for Passover, which is starting this weekend.

Alongside cleaning the place down and laying out mats on all the food surfaces, it meant swapping out all the food preparing and eating equipment with a whole different set, which is only used on Passover. The physical lifting and logistics in a small flat meant Mr. R wouldn’t be able to do it alone.

He was so warm and gracious and even sent us away with a box of matzo, which we started on immediately we left. We also got to have a nice long walk in the sun, have some lunch out and witnessed the extraordinary sight of a load of bees who’d lost their mummy, so were waiting by a lamp post together.

Chipping in!

Mon 11 Apr
Report written by Liz James

Today Sabina, Karen, Helen, Lee and Liz met for a short warm-up. Sabina then led the way to Clitterhouse Farm.

When we arrived Valentina, Kat and Danny had already started chipping in by weeding the flower beds. Sabina joined this team.

Becka, Helen, Karen, Lee and Liz were quick to chip in too by moving the wood chippings with spades and a wheelbarrow. The chippings were moved to areas which easily become water logged to soak up the extra water.

The time flew by and it was soon time to chip in with the tidying up and then to return to base to eat chips!

Out with the old weeds , in with the new seeds

Mon 4 Apr
Report written by Tabitha Skinner

It was great to meet in the daylight on Monday when five of us met at Papagayo ready for our run and task. We started with a great cheer for Helen who had successfully completed a the London Landmarks half marathon in less than two hours...on her birthday! Congratulations Helen! Despite the wobbly legs, she joined Pete, Lee , Samina and I for a warm up and a 3k run to Clittehouse Farm.

There was lots to do at Clitterhouse, and luckily for us Valentina, Kat and Rebecca met us at there. Valentina and Kat were planting pumpkin and white flower seeds, ready for Spring. I cleared a wall of weeds , in preparation for turning it into a lettuce wall. Pete, Helen Rebecca and Samina got to work weeding flowerbeds, the compost that had been used had lots of small weeds poking out that needed pulling out. We worked quickly as it started to get dark so it was a race against the clock. We managed to finish just before dark, cleared up, smiled for a team photo or two and headed back. All those who made it all the way to Papagayo were rewarded with Cake, Chips and Drinks . Great work everyone, see you all soon!

Ah, so thorny

Sat 15 Jan
Report written by Kat

On a cold, Saturday afternoon, Danny and I visited Mr M. to help him with his garden. We were asked to clear up some garden waste so that Mr M. could made a good use of the space once it gets warmer. Luckily, we had 2 pairs of gloves each to protect us from the thorny branches that were piled up in the garden. Nevertheless, it was lovely to do our first mission for 2022 and meet Mr M., who was a lovely host. 6 bags of waste later, we said our goodbyes and wished Mr M. a good rest of the day.

P.S. Well done to the GG-mers, who tidied up Mr M's garden before us. They've obviously put a lot of hard work!
