"A dedicated group gathered in Meath gardens to work our legs, bums and tums. On this cold blue Monday Laura brought cheer and tunes (and the all important resistance bands! ) We hugged trees, lapped the park and worked those abs while passers-by heralded our bravery. Well done all for a great workout!" - Fiona
Cold the night was
Warmth Laura brought
Gone was the cold

A good-sized group of us met in the park this evening to run through a short workout.
Thanks to the addition of planters and park benches, we were able to complete a total body workout. The team were amazing, whizzing through side planks, tricep dips and incline push-ups, along with a full repertoire of lower body exercises including the Bulgarian split squat and The Perfect Lunge.
At 7pm, we made our way over to the tool shed to meet Larry, our task owner for the night, who's heading up the Priory Park Project. Larry talked us through tonight's task, a large bramble-clearing, in the far side of the park.
Wheeling tools and carrying gardening bags and lights, we headed over to the end of the park, and divided into small teams, tackling small areas, densely populated with brambles, weeds and leaves.
An hour passed quickly, and even after 20 minutes, the ground was looking clearer. As the brambles and other greenery were cleared away, the magnificent churchyard tombs became visible. Larry gave us a little background on the position of these tombs and their history, in this picturesque churchyard park.
It was quite the Monday night workout, with both upper and lower body being used to tackle stubborn bramble roots; step counts boosted as we navigated our way around the area, and carried heavy bags back to the exit.
At shortly before 8, Fiona took our 'after' pics (having brilliantly thought of taking our 'before' ones), and we gathered with one last bag of brambles for tonight's final pic.
Big shout-outs tonight:
To Áine, for being a brilliant lighting technician and for tonight's fab pun.
To Fiona, for fab before and after pics.
To Gualtiero, whose first Tower Hamlets task this was!
And to our Joel, who's heading South of the river for a while, but who we hope to see very, very soon.
Well done to the whole team in general, for a brilliant, fun, very productive night up in Bromley-By-Bow. (We'll be back with Larry next month).
Until next time.

Aine and Sree arrived at Cranbrook at 1.30 to help out Janet and some of the locals to get the community centre ready for their Christmas party which kicked off at 3.
Our main job was to get the tables ready with tablecloths and hang up some Christmas decorations with the assistance of a little helper. We also had chats and sang Christmas songs and helped hand out the hot food and paper plates as the party kicked off.
