Liz, Tabitha, Louise, Pete and Sabina all met by Papagayo Cafe at 6.45/7pm. Louise had come from East London to join GG Brent for the evening (hoping to build a shed and socialise).
We started with some warm up exercises.It was to be Liz's last session as an official resident of Brent and after several years as run leader, we want to say a huge 'thank you ' to her for her committment, leadership and friendship. It has been a lot of fun and we have done many tasks together helping the communities in Brent :-) (Although Liz will still be coming to Goodgym Brent when she can :-) )
We then ran to Abbey Community Centre and met up with Bekah and Lee, then went with the lovely Simone from the centre to the new building in order to build their shed for them. Unfortunately there was a communication mix up and the security guard did not know we were coming!
After much conversation he decided he would not let us in so we ran back to Papagayo Cafe, not downhearted and finished with drinks and pizza and a great goodbye and thanks and applause to Liz!
See you all next week or soon !

On a warm Monday evening Pete, Sabina, Samina and Liz ran to Clitterhouse farm. They were greeted by Anika who explained the task. Christina came to help out too!
The task was to tidy the herb garden. The team dug up weeds and cut unruly growth. In a very short thyme the herb beds were tidy.
The team ran/ cycled back to Papagayo for a drink to cool down.
Well done team!

We had the usual hello chatter, "how was your week", "isn't this weather weird", "let's hope it stops raining". When we had all arrived we started the warm up.
We tied the pumpkin plants to stalks at Clitterhouse farm, then ran back to our favourite haunt.
Tabitha pulled weeds with confidence, some were more stubborn than others but had success in the end. Samina and Becka were there too
Pete and Liz were required for manual labour and weight lifting. Their tast was to move building rubbish out of sight ready for the cafe opening. There were also two extremely heavy crates to move. This was followed by weeding and sweeping.
Samina and Helen were busy "staking their claim" on the corn crop.
after expert tying to bamboo poles
and Liz and Pete did some marvelous weeding
The weeding job was very tricky, a full body work out standing up and pulling from the roots. After 30 minutes we had made a great difference but sadly were not able to remove them all...but will return soon we are sure.
We ran back to the pub for some group stretching exercises, then into our favourite pub for our usual weekly drinks.
We had a round robin for the cool down stretches, followed by...
Pete and Helen had a sprint for the finish- with Pete the clear victor. After a round of stretches, we called it a night and retreated to Papagayo for a well deserved beverage.

The amazing trio Sabina, Helen and Liz met outside Papagayo. After a quick warm-up, the team quickly put their best foot forward and began the muggy run to Clitterhouse Farm.
There were 3 tasks which the team quickly completed. They dead-headed the daffodils, dug a trench around a flower bed and removed the weeds from another flower bed.
Soon, the team began their return run to Papagayo.
