Hounslow Report written by Anastasia Hancock (she/her)

Last night was a masterclass in speed volunteering thanks to some very inhospitable conditions!

Just as we met for our Wednesday group run we were greeted with threatening skies and it wasn't too long before the downpour started good and proper. Undeterred we did our warm up and ran down to Cavendish school where we have been helping create a sustainable learning area for the children.

By the time we got there we were already sodden, but we grabbed tools and cracked on with our task for the evening. The space is being slowly transformed from an overgrown tangle of weeds and unwanted bushes and we have been lending a hand over the months getting it into shape. Previous sessions have seen us create a pathway, hack down the waist-high undergrowth, dig over the soil and clear the pond area. The school now want to install composters to make use of the leaves that are clogging up the place, so we got cracking raking, stacking and collecting the remaining leaves to create mulch.

After a good hard session we were quickly getting increasingly soggy and the rain was showing no signs of stopping so we put away our tools and made a run for the safety and warmth of the town hall. It was a relief to make it back but we didn't get too comfortable, immediately starting on the full body strength and conditioning workout. If that wasn't tough enough, the finisher was a wall sit that everybody smashed, holding the tough position for a whole two minutes. If that wasn't enough there was even a singalong to distract from the pain!

Amazing work in tough circumstances last night team, well done! Next week I'm hoping for a balmy Wednesday evening for our trip to help out at the Chiswick House community kitchen garden. Have a great week, GG!

Haha, I did bet on a different horse yesterday night. Still had my share of soggy running! Well done guys for working in such weather conditions!
