Running for health not results, and trying to do good! I work a 24/7 shift pattern but come to GG Hounslow/Richmond (+others!) when I can
RFS - Richmond Furniture Scheme https://www.rfsonline.co.uk/ is a charity in our borough and one we have started to visit again which is fantastic as they have heaps of physical tasks in store
They are hoping we can assist with a number of tasks going forward but right now they need a grand tidy up!
The main theme right now is clearing the courtyard of so many, weeds and moss etc to pave the way for further tasks to happen. They were delighted with Salwa and Monika helping so well last time but there is still heaps to do so do hurry back was the message
Lucy will be there to meet you this morning and her number for the visit is 0208 755 4665, should you need on route
We're back at Turnham Green - a lovely public space that we have been helping maintain and make even more beautiful over the years.
We'll be lending a hand with the thistle problem, among other jobs, and Jan will be there to oversee and instruct.
Do bring your own gloves if you have them.
Mrs U wanted a pack of clementines today - sadly it seems that anything that isn't specifically an orange has been renamed "easy peeler" when they're actually various different varieties of citrus fruits. I got her easy-peeler mandarins instead, which she seemed okay with, but I wish their name was clementine*.
I managed to get most things she needed but shortages and general changes in the shops meant that a few things couldn't be found. Hopefully next time we will find her some paratha!

Chiswick Flower market is a not-for-profit community event who have asked for our help closing down the market after it finishes. They need a hand removing signage, taking down bunting and litter picking at the site.
Bring your own gloves and sanitiser if you can, and enjoy a lovely afternoon mission outside supporting the community!
Amanda will be your point of contact, and you'll be able to find her market HQ. If you have problems finding the group, Amanda can be reached on 07943029754
