After several months of Swindon virtual parkrun success, today saw 8 of us hardy souls join the Hi-vis Heroes at Seven Fields parkrun… Only to be gatecrashed by Storm Arwen! The wind was super strong (reliably informed 40mph winds to be exact), and the snow like needles to the face. To say it was freezing is a complete understatement!
Our Pacers, Paul, Stuart, Jason, Tracey, and Charles (well I think it was Charles under all those layers?!) did a cracking job of leading 64 other parkrunners round the course. All directed round and cheered on by our Marshal Rhoda and timed in position by Timekeeper Kirsty. All that was left was for me to do was to help close down the event before dashing home to hibernate under the duvet and to defrost!
What a wonderful pre-Christmas 🎄Community Mission! We will be meeting at the Swindon Food Collective to help sort donations and prepare emergency food boxes ready for those in need at Christmas. A food bank in Swindon run by a team of 65 volunteers and one member of staff, they need our help unpacking and sorting stock recently donated by churches, schools, local companies and supermarkets.
Because of COVID 🦠 guidelines and limited space within the warehouse, the register has been set at 10 volunteers...so sign up sooner rather than later to guarantee yourself a space!
Please note that more information about the day will be sent to you once you have signed up.
