The plot thickens

Slough Report written by Manjit Birk

As we approach the darker nights tasks like the allotments will draw to a halt as there is no lighting at the allotments. We knew weed get a good amount done in the time we had (which we did!)! In fact weed managed to clear the rest of plot 2 and 1 all in 30 minutes.

Fortunately for us the ground was soft so much easier to pull the weeds out.

Savi savaged the big weeds with Pam and Sut trying to miss the mud bath.

Nimi and Sandy focused their energies on the smaller patch picking out the weeds and turning it over.

With all the weeds bagged up we had enough time for a mini leg strengthening fitness session before walking back to our meet up point.

Next week we will be helping out the Scope charity shop in town centre.

Two shots - One weed tossed to the bin bag and the other scooped by by the spade. Whoops! Sorry about that. At least it was less than the last time :)

Just a litter parkrun

Slough Report written by Manjit Birk

This morning we helped out our local junior parkrun with mashalling roles followed by a litter pick.

Its always great to kick start the day with the happy go lucky juniors. They bring so much energy to their parkrun.

We collected 4 bagfuls of rubbish around the car park and play areas.

Who you gonna call… dust busters!

Slough Report written by Manjit Birk

This evening we were back with St John the Baptist church. This time round though we were to clean the inside of the church and kitchen area rather than be outside. The night's are drawing in quickly now so it was great to have the task inside instead.

Mark, our task owner is actually running a community cafe in the church which will be open to all local residents as a place of comfort, company and a cuppa chai so it felt good to be able to help Mark and the team get the inside space spruced up.

Another one fights the dust

Our meet up point tonight was at The Activity centre and our distance was just shy of a mile each way. With plenty to chat about we got the warm up done and dusted and made our way.

On arrival, Mark was on hand to give us Henry, the Hoover and Jay, the cloth.

Whilst Jean and Sandy cracked on with moving crockery in and out of cupboards, Jen and Lauren picked up the Hoovers and got ready to bust the dust.

The church area was actually pretty tidy so we didn’t need to alter much. Jen, being our font of all knowledge managed to get half the area done in around 15 minutes. I helped do the other half so on no time it was done… pew for that!

Lauren did the breakout area which didn’t need much scrubbing and as we already had too many cooks in the kitchen, she came to help us finish off the main church.

Within 40 minutes we had both the kitchen and hoovering done. Love it when a task comes together!

Next week we are at the allotments. Please bring your body lights or a torch.

See the light in Slough!

Slough Report written by Manjit Birk

We couldn’t herb our enthusiasm on our new task this evening.

We were helping Mark who is leading the Support Cafe from St John the Baptist Cand St Michael Manor Park Church on Stoke Poges Lane.

The cafe will be a hub for local families and residents to come and have a hot meal, read a paper, get some advise or just somewhere to be.

Our task was to help cut back the vegetation in the outside grounds.

We started our evening at Salt Hill Park where we went through the task brief and had a brief warm up. Then the walkers went out walking whilst the runners did what runners do… a lot of faffing, until we were ready to leave.

On arrival we were met by Mark from the Support Community Cafe and the Reverend Suzanne who gave us the task lowdown.

Hoe Hoe Hoe… it’s off to Church we go

With plenty of weeding needed we grabbed a tool each and got to work.

Sara and Pam took the section nearest the Church as they wanted to discuss a day in the leaf with the best tool for the job! The hoe!

Jean and Abdulaziz took the side elevation and got a twiggle on to finish that.

Sandy and Gauri took the front left section as they caught up with each other - think they wanted some peas and quiet from the rest of us.

Whilst Agnija and I had just the thicket with our tools.

No need to cut it vine tonight! Within just 35 minutes we had cleared all the weeds and swept them all up!

Our good weed for the day was done!

Next week we will be back at this task but on Tuesday as Monday is now a bank holiday.

Oops weed did it again

Slough Report written by Manjit Birk

As Autumn starts and the days start to get darker sooner, we realised this might be our last evening task with Slough Refugee Support.... but that just means we will aim to log some day thyme garden tasks instead! Where there's a will there's a way!

Upon arrival into the park we started off with the warm up and chat over weekend shinanigans before we headed to the bottom of the hill for some sprints.

After a few ups and downs we headed over to the Slough Refugee Support centre on the other side of the park.

Gazeb-it or not

The first task Keriann wanted us to do was to take down Gary The Gazebo! Now Gary was a bit tricky! We looked him up and down, tried to work out the top from the bottom and the left from the right.. finally with a bit of help from an online source we took Gary out in one swift move!

No leaf left behind

Whilst the Gary operation was taking place by Sut, Sandy, Lauren and I, Jean and Pam had swept up all the fallen autumn leaves!

A job well done team Slough!

Next week we are with a new task owner helping them with their garden space.

Thirsty work

Slough Report written by Manjit Birk

Well done to everyone who got involved in this task.

Its certainly been a dry dry summer and these poor trees have needed this extra supply we have given them.

So great to hear that some of you have adopted a tree or two and looked after it whilst others have taken the kids out and got them involved in watering the trees, and others have gone out for walks and completed this task.

Child’s play

Slough Report written by Manjit Birk

Tonight was our return task to St Mary’s primary school to finish off the third planter in the allotment garden.

And thank goodness for that day of rain we had last week! Planters 1 and 2 had been like digging into concrete whereas todays planter was soft and easy to turnover!

We made this task a community mission over a group run as it was located down a lovely country lane but one we felt was safer to drive to.

On arrival task owner James let us in and escorted us to other slide where the play area was.

Abdul and Pam got to work on the left hand side whilst Gauri and I did the right.

Kam wanted to give last weeks planter another go over and get all the deep rooted weeds out.

Sandy then cracked on with the middle section.

With 6 of us digging away the task was done in no thyme leaving us 15 minutes to get a fitness session in.

With a clock and footprints already set up in the play ground we had the perfect power based games!

We even had a few minutes spare to climb the doomed climbing frame for a photo slide show!

Next week we are helping Slough Refugee Support with their outdoor space. Hope to see you there!
