Organisations Sharon Prince has pledged to support
Group Fitness Activities
Another one of our previous tasks has returned (cue emphatic fist pump). Newham Hospital have asked for our help. Both the patient garden and staff garden need some GoodGym muscle.
From our base at PrintHouse, this should be a nice traffic free saunter down the Greenway, just above 2miles.
Headtorches season is upon us, please pack illumination.
See you then
A visit to Cody Dock is always good for the soul and has been a pleasure over the last few years to see how this place has changed and introduced new visitors.
Sign up and come and join us for a gentle run/walk down The River Lea.
Task is to be confirmed and depending on numbers could be an option of what to do but will definitely be something fun.
Please remember head torches for the journey home
Had the fortune of bumping into Paul on the journey to Stratford, got to catch up on the last few months, before he made a dash for home and endeavoured to catch us up.
Simon, Hilary, Kevin and Sharon were ahead of me, waiting at the PrintHouse, we discussed ankle laxity and regeneration, did an unconventional warm up, and then headed off into the night. On route we went through this week's RWQ "Have you recently spoken out of turn?" I managed it twice, I think, on Tuesday, hence wanted some reassurance that others do it too. Kev confused his inner monologue with his actual real life voice at a board meeting "are you f'ing serious?" I believe was the phrase used. Shaz had a a few examples with patient's parents. Hils and Simon, exemplary humans that they no doubt are, were without. Teach me, please?
Got to Get Out and got stuck in asap. Paul and Sharon grabbed brooms and started sweeping the paths. Hils and Simon went on a slug hunt and Kev and I cleaned the the algae off the pond.Felt like a privilege to be in that serene lush setting at night, surrounded by the bustling city, yet cocooned in our own little oasis.
We finished off with a drink, thanks Paul, and focaccia (read garlic bread) with humous, thanks Hils. All in an evening's work.
Next week we're at Cody Dock, sign up here
Till then my aerobic war horses,
'Tis a short run over this week. As we head to permaculture heaven, we'll receive instruction from Kieran via a note, then do our green-fingered thang.
Look forward to seeing you all
ps. headtorches please (note for myself too)
