We’ve scene the last of those weeds

Wandsworth Report written by Anastasia Hancock (she/her)

Last night temperatures were dropping but thanks to the increasing festivities, a very positive task, and a most exciting milestone, spirits were rising!

Our job for the evening was at a local theatre, Omnibus, a charity which aims to bring the arts to everybody, especially young people and the local community.

We kicked off the evening with a warm up whilst also trying to spot the celebs arriving at the BAC for that evening's comedy. No luck - maybe next week!

Most importantly, we celebrated our very own celeb for the evening, Stephanie who reached that magic milestone - 100 good deeds! Absolutely brilliant, give her a massive cheer! You can check out the star herself quite rightly taking centre stage in the photos above.

After a frosty run to the theatre we were greeted by Marie who told us that they'd finally had permission to create a lovely garden in the space behind the theatre. It is a large area with a beautiful mature apple tree but they haven't been able to take ownership of it before now. Luckily the time has come, so we set about giving it a massive weed and going over. First though there was a question of a number of beautiful Christmas trees which had to be moved. With the scent of pine in the air we made like good stage hands and shifted them all to their rightful place.

Next was clearing the area, transporting wooden fencing, litter picking, tarpaulin straightening and rubbish stacking. After all that the space was starting to look a lot better, and it won't be long until we can head back to spread soil and start planting!

We headed outside for our winter warmer body blast, and, trying to ignore the very warm and toasty looking pub opposite, got stuck in to our workout. For 45 seconds at a time we tackled all the main muscle groups and worked up a sweat.

Next week would you believe it is already our last group run of the year? But don't worry, there will still be plenty going on. We have a great session planned writing Christmas cards for isolated people followed by our festive social next week - don't miss out! Plus there are several great missions going on this weekend including wrapping present sofr refugees and making Ukrainian refugees feel welcome.

To-barrow, to-barrow, I love you to-barrow, you’re only a spade awaaay!

Hounslow Report written by Anastasia Hancock (she/her)

Astonishing, lovely, charming, kind and large. To kick off last night we tried to think of adjectives to describe ourselves starting with the first letter of our name - why not have a look at the register and try and match the description with the GGer?!

There was a chill in the air, but we were not to be deterred and after a quick warm up we headed off for Chiswick House for our task in the community kitchen garden. We arrived at the gates to see the figure of Gardener Stephen striding towards us through the mists, and followed him to the garden.

He had helpfully laid out a fleet (a convoy? An armada?) of wheelbarrows and more spades that you could shake a headtorch at ready for our task.

While one group got busy destroying (our strong suit) some old raised beds, the rest of us grabbed tools and began shifting woodchips - and a good job too as it is officially Leticia's favourite task!

Soon we were working like a well oiled machine, and Michelle suggested we need some sort of air traffic control system to guide the wheelbarrows in as they came thick and fast.

After 40 minutes of hard work and many sets of numb fingers we waved goodbye to Stephen for the year and headed over to the park for a fitness session where we found out all sorts of new things about each other - like who had bungee jumped before, who had been too drunk to eat Christmas Day lunch, and, unbelievably, who had never run a parkrun before. Time for some New Year's resolutions to be made? Oh and we threw in some sprints, squats and lunges for good measure.

Next week we're going to be doing an important job spreading the word about the fabulous That's A Wrap drive, which aims to provide every child living in poverty with a gift this Christmas. Sign up for all the fun and fitness right here. Now it's officially December (just about), it's time to put some good festive purpose into our workouts!
