Back at the allotment and in goes some veggies
It was a busy evening at the allotment last night. With the old daffodils out and new veggies in. We also welcomed Andrew to his first mission last night. We hope you had an enjoyable evening.
Anne, Maya and Becky were busy removing weeds from the main part of the allotment. Also thank you to Becky who provided us with some sweet treats - we all clearly love smarties! Also thank you to Christine (a friend of James) who brought us over some jugs of squash and cups to help keep us hydrated!
The potatoes we put into the ground last month were finally sprouting so we dug them over to help push more potatoes down! We also planted some runner beans, broad beans and artichokes.
A big well done to every one, as part of mental health week - nothing can beat an evening in the garden.
We will be meeting at WWF carpark for some litter picking along the canal and in the nearby park areas. Don't forget your gloves!
Meeting at the WWF Carpark steps - look out for the GG Red T-Shirts. There is parking available if you are driving.
From here we will walk down the canal, picking up any litter along the way. Last litter pick we came to a park area where there was A LOT of litter. We will continue in this area and clear the rubbish.
*Please remember your gloves and bring your own litter picker if you have one. *
You can purchase a foldable litter picker on amazon which is great if you are running to the meet up area.
Meet at Brookwood Station at 6:45pm.
We have a lot of work to do so we will be continuing with our tasks.
If you are wanting to run from Woking town then it is an easy route straight down the canal and is just under 7km. It will be dark once we complete the task - so think ahead and remember a torch if you running back or you can get the train back into work and costs just under £4.
We are part of the Brookwood Community Gardening Project and we have been granted with funds to create a sustainable garden at Brookwood Station. We have two outdoor areas out the front of the station. Planters on platform 2 and another area on Platform 1 to improve.
Please remember your gloves and also face mask.

The sky opened on the group of 5 runners who were hit by hale one kilometer before the meeting point: Brockhill care home. Becky, James, Katie and Anne welcomed Moumita to her first (short) mission in Woking.
A handsome young man opened the door to us and promptly apologized for the bad weather! When we looked toward the garden, where our task was to take place, we saw a curtain of water falling down, the ground was an enormous puddle… in other words we could not even attempt to start the task.
Unanimously we thought it wiser to postpone the gardening/painting we were supposed to complete and brave the elements to run back home via the canal.
See you at the allotment next week when we will carry on with planting vegetables and tidying up our plot.
Happy running to you all!
