We are going to dig, prune, weed and generally garden in the lovely wild area at St Jude's School. This will help maintain the additional learning area in the school.
We love this space!!
Please bring your gardening gloves.
Meet outside Southsea Medical Centre to jog/run/cycle to the school or meet us there at 6pm: St Judes School, St Nicholas Street, Old Portsmouth, PO1 2NX
Well done to the hi viz heroes who git up bright and early on Sunday to marshal the third and final soggy bottom triathlon.
The organisers and participants were very grateful (shame we can't say the same about a few of the locals!)
The reward was a lovely kayak afterwards.

Be a hi viz hero!
Report to Rob or Dawn when you get there.
It was lovely to welcome Kat and Nick back to group runs tonight, just in time for both of them to sport the 50 rosette to celebrate their half century of good deeds. Excellent work, next stop the 100 wings!!
There were a great variety of bikes racked up in front of the church once we'd all arrived.
Our job tonight was to clear the paved area at the back of the church, including reclaiming some of the paving from the grass and dirt. Kat and Nick dismantled a metal shelving unit which had about 400 bolts holding it together!
There was lots of lifting and shifting of bags of earth, metal, and rubbish plus many wheelbarrows of dirt. We created lots of dust but also made the place look a lot clearer, ready for a new seating area.
Our efforts were rewarded with drinks and snacks including home made cake and rolls! Amazing service, I'm sure we'll be back again.
Welcome the return of Parkrun by volunteering with Eastney Junior Parkrun!
Eastney Junior Parkrun is a 2k run every Sunday at 9am in Bransbury Park for 4 to 10 year olds.

We'll need to be there ready for 8.30am by the café. If you want do (or avoid) any particular volunteering role, leave a comment below or message me. They are keen for extra marshals and tailwalker(s) in particular.
This is a special double volunteering points opportunity!! Goodgym and Parkrun if you are registered - dust off that barcode!
