We had a last minute cancellation of task today but we never gift up as we soon had one lined up with Clare from Stoke Park Trust helping to wrap up presents for their grotto, tinsel up some tea lights, sort through Christmas lights and a bit of light hovering
We met at the task location at 6:30pm and those wishing to get out for a run went off for a 10 minute out and back run with Ruth back marking and me leading.
Whilst those who wanted to just do the task met us at the task location at 7pm
Clare gave us the low down on what she wanted us to do… there was no time like the present to crack on.
Pam, Keith, Devajani, Maya, Kam and Jean spent some qualitree time wrapping up the empty boxes
Ruth was doing her best not to get her tinsel in a tangle and get it nicely wrapped around the tea lights
Whilst I was doing my best impersonation of Freddie and the famous hoovering scene …
The task was nicely wrapped up in 45 minutes.
Thank you Clare for the last minute task - much appreciated

Devajani Sengupta earned their community cape by completing their first community mission.
Devajani completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Devajani was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.

Today's community mission was to do a litter pick at St Mary's Church in preparation for the Sunday Remembrance Service and Parade.
We had 7 team members eager to collect as much litter as we could to ensure the church grounds were in tip top condition.
At first sight the grounds already looked spick and span, but sometimes you never know what's hidden behind the deep depths of the grass! However today there was very little.
At 11am we observed a 2 minutes silence for the fallen soldiers.
We completed the task in under an hour and collected 4 bags of rubbish (which is actually really good for this task).
Thank you to everyone who attended

We descended on the allotments tonight knowing that the daylight hours were fading fast and that we would have to be a bit speedy on tonight's task.
With a team of 9 helpers even an overgrown plot was no battle for us! With tools in hand, we got to work - we were all beetrooting for each other! The weeds were very high again, but given the recent wet, dry, sunny, wet weather it's no wonder...we could all loose the plot when faced with these conditions.
Hamid worked very hard tonight and beavered away at all the spickey roots, Mehdi took charge of the wheelbarrow duties, whilst Kam, Jean, Sandy, Devajani, Maya and Pam worked on their little patches until all the weeds had been removed.
By 7.30pm it was getting too dark to do much more, although the plot looked miles better than it did at the beginning.
Great job all round!
Next week we are meeting at Salt Hill Activity Centre for 6.30pm and making our way to Northampton Ave to help Parvaaz Project with their garden space.

Tonight's task was to help Wexham Park Hospital with a litter pick task. We've now been helping Mike and the team at Wexham since we first starting operating in Slough and it's been a nice little give back each time to the NHS.
With my legs feeling a little sore from The Big Half race yesterday, I had already decided I could not run today. I think everyone was secretly pleased with that announcement, so we made our 2.5km route up to the hospital from our meet up point at Masaani on Shaggy Calf Lane.
En route we bumped into a lovely man from Japan who expressed an interest in joining us in the future - we hope he does!
On arrival, we could see the levels of litter had increased so we quickly got to work on collecting as much as we could. It was the usual finds - cans, crisp packets, masks, parking tickets, items of clothing!
Working in pairs or small teams we systematically made our way around the front of the hospital collecting 4 bags of rubbish.
Thank you everyone for all your help today.
Next week we will be helping St Mary's primary school in Farnham Common for a fence painting task.
