Anchors away!

Worthing Report written by JULIA GLEESON

Hunkering down

It was good to be back at our regular meeting point tonight and it was especially nice that it wasn't raining! With a clear evening promised it was no surprise that Sarah, who doesnt step foot out of the door if there is a chance of rain, came along. There was a worrying few minutes on the run to the task when it started drizzling but luckily it was short lived.

Joining Sarah we welcomed her partner Ryan and top fan, John together with Daisy, Anne and Rosalind.

Tonights task was at Anchor Gardens situated on the seafront close to our meeting point. As it was such a lovely evening we took a detour to walk/ run around our stunning pier. Daisy, Sarah and Ros set off on a run whilst the other 4 of us took a chatty walk option instead. The run seemed to take on a social aspect too with Anne and I wondering if they had taken an additional detour to a cafe!

We all linked up and arrived at the task and with the help of our wonderful GG lights plus head torches we assessed what needed doing. The garden could do with a lot of TLC and although we made good progress with the weeding, pruning and tidying, there is still much more that needs doing so we will not be short of tasks this winter!

The Worthing calendar is now up to date until January including socials so get yourself signed up to as many as possible and lets have some fun!

Keep going with the press up challenge - not long now !!

See you next week

A 'gourd'en of blessings - still young at 300 !

Worthing Report written by JULIA GLEESON

A Frightfully Delightful Garden

On the eve of Halloween, I reached an epic 300 task milestone at the Heene Church community garden. Dressed as a skeleton it was also significant as a I rarely dress up!

This garden is one which I have ear marked as a makeover winter project for us to support Val and Rik from Friends of St Botolph's Church .

John got stuck in with some serious digging whilst our resident expert gardeners Rosalind and Gillybean working on speedy efficient weeding,

While the garden activities were underway, the rest of the team, comprising of RyanSarah, BelindaBarbara, Ricky, Duncan and Lucy embarked on a brisk walk along the nearby seafront. Despite the looming threat of rain, Sarah's presence was an outstanding surprise to me as she rarely steps out if there is even a 1% chance of rain 🤣 I felt very honoured 😇

When the walkers returned they donned gloves and pitched in to help. At this point the clock on count down until they were allowed to go to the pub! Several comments like ' it must be time' and ' 10 minutes must be over by now ', were heard loud and clear so I caved in.

We had filled 5 bags of debris so a great job done which John and I disposed of with plenty of help from Ros, Ryan and Sarah.

And so to the pub!

We sealed the evening with a lovely gathering at the pub where Duncan made a speech and I was awarded a very special bespoke needle felt of Hudson ( my gorgeous cocker spaniel ) with his mascot red and white regalia on . This had been very kindly made by John to commemorate my 300th task. Thankyou 🙏- so very much appreciated. Check out the photos to appreciate just how special this is to me. Thank you also, to each and everyone of you, that has made every single of my 300 tasks so memorable !

I'm signing off with gratitude and love to you all.

Julia xx 😍 xx
