Brighton & Hove Food Partnership have a wonderful community kitchen on Queen's Road. They run variety of paid cookery courses and they use the profits from this to run courses for disadvantaged groups so its a great cause.
They have requested a visit from 10 of us to give it a good clean.
It's a short run/ walk but expect a big fitness session!
Meet at Victoria Statue at 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start for the run/walk.
Quote of the evening goes to Frances for "I feel like I’m having a ceasarean' whilst performing the scissors during the fitness session!
But first there was the meet up where we discovered our Victoria statue meeting point is fenced in for an impending Christmas market. So we gathered under a large elm tree where Frannie stole the show again by being sh** on by a bird! No one 'fessed up to any weekend running achievements for the intro speech but I later discovered that Rebecca had run a trail race at the weekend so congratulations Rebecca and glad you are back to running injury free again.
We ran to Hanover & Elm Grove ward, with the faster runners looping round our lovely Valley Gardens, and meet cllrs. Steph & David who deployed us round the ward on litter picking and graffiti painting duties. I think we are definitely winning on the graffiti as there was only a few tags to cover up, or perhaps they are fair-weather scribblers?
A Tabata fitness session of squats, abs and lunges variations rounded off the evening and for once we didn’t get heckled or gatecrashed by any drunken Levellers!
We'll be making a visit to help out Cll David Gibson and local residents look after the neighbourhood in the Hanover & Elm Grove area.
Expect graffiti painting, litter picking and/or weeding.
Meet at Victoria Statue at 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start for the run/walk. Fitness session to follow the task on The Level.
The first winter task convened on what happened to be the coldest night in a long time. We ran up the hill that is Edward Street towards Sloane Court to once again tackle the large garden at this senior citizens accommodation.
Usually we would meet our friend Tony there and he would direct us, chat away and tell stories. Unfortunately Tony is under the weather at the moment....we missed his double éntendres. Get well soon Tony.
We mainly cleared a lot of dead foliage and chopped down some bushes that had left this mortal coil. Jason in particular was determined to dig out a large,stubborn root to the point that a fork he was using also met its maker.
When finished we jogged down to the seafront and Tara put us through some sprints. This writer tried to go for broke and is feeling it this morning!
Another task well done.
Sloane Court is a council run Seniors' housing scheme with a big garden!
We will continue weeding the large raised bed and cut back the vegetation under the windows to allow more light inside.
Meet at Victoria Gardens at 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start.
