We had been promised a bit Mor-a painting at Mora School , but it was all finished before our visit. The school were still grateful for our help as they have a huge playground that needed sweeping so after our hellos and warm ups we jogged to Mora School .
On arrival we had a few minutes to spare while waiting for the brushes, so we played a fast paced game of British Bulldog , taking some of us back to our primary school days . We then got started on the task of sweeping the playground to ensure the children can play safely in a clean playground , free of litter and leaves .
Once the playground was swept, we re grouped for some fitness exercises . Pete led the group with some jogs at increasing speeds across the playground. Following this, we took it in turns to master our football skills weaving a ball in and out of cones. As the night started to fall we ended with a wall sit challenge , congratulations to the champions Xenia and Pete !
We then jogged back to Willesden for a well deserved cold drink. Well done everyone , Bra vo !

Big numbers for a big task tonight. We welcomed lots of new faces, including Xenia and Katy. It was a lovely late summer evening, and we jogged through Gladstone park to arrive at Mora Primary School. There we waited patiently for them to notice the shouting, waving and phone calls and they UnLocked the door and welcomed us in.
Then we all got into one room and rolled the paint on
We rolled down the floor cloths, put our painting gloves on and rolled the paint smoothly down the walls, using the finer brushes to create that final polishing touch. Everyone who could see colours painted, everyone else... scraped the old paint off. sensible job allocations, team!
As the sweat dripped down our brows, down this paint crawled, down this paint crawled.
With only two rollers and some very small brushes we managed to finish one of the rooms, ready for a second coat on our return next week. We packed up, washed up , brushed the floor and jogged back to Willesden
Thank you everyone for joining! Hope to see you again soon
