After a slight bit of confusion about the actual venue for the task, 6 GG Yorkies eventually arrived at Tang Hall Explore Library, which is definitely not the same place as Tang Hall Community Centre. Even more confusion ensued when we were greeted by a very surpised-looking member of staff who I was told would be expecting us. However, Suzanne from the Library saved the day and was fully prepared for our arrival, even if we were a little later than expected! Oh, and big shout out to Debs for arriving in a car so she could spare Tay and Ange from any more running
Eventually we got underway with the actual task - setting up tables and sorting books. Effectively, it turns out there are only a limited genre of books in the world which can easily be classified the following:
Kids (including troubled teens). Light and Fluffy. A bit dark and murdery. James Patterson/Andy McNab. Historical fiction. War. Biogrophies of very dislikable people.
That's it. No other types of book exist in the history of the written word
We each picked a title for the team photo which we felt best suited us and thus the task was complete
Good fun had by all

4 GG Yorkies met at York St John Hockey pitch to pick up some wheelbarrows and shovels. Meanwhile, one GG Yorkie (Ed) and a dog rode around the general area, searching for the meeting location and learning a lesson to always read the task description rather than relying on the postcode given on the task listing... 😂
Our task for today was to spread some woodchip on the muddy Foss-side footpaths of the fairy trail.
With the group finally assembled, the four GG ladies headed to our woodchip mountain to fill our barrows. Then we wheeled them a really long way down the path to find and cover up the muddy bits. Meanwhile, Ed was commandeered by the fairy trail ladies to help them fix their new information board into the ground, and for some bonus log sawing. 🪵🪚.
After an hour, we'd got through half the woodchip pile and covered up the worst of the mud - much to the delight of the thankful dog walkers passing 🙂
