A lovely sunny evening welcomed us for our weekly group run, heading along the riverside to Petersham. It's a wonderful place to be at any time, but summer in Richmond is even more special, with lots of boats, the surprisingly high tide, puppet theatre and evening strollers to observe as we ran past in our red t-shirts!

On arrival at Petersham & Ham Sea Scouts, task owner Russell shared info on what needed doing: caps on the boat scaffolding, moving rotten driftwood away from the floor area where it could dry out, shifting building sand and a team effort to sweep and collect leaves to add to their very fruitful compost heap.

When the work was done, Jack and Teresa were found adventuring with Russell, getting into to the historic Drebbel replica submarine that lives at the scout base. Jack poked his head back up with eyes of wonder, Teresa more with eyes watering from the smell!

A final run back to the centre as the sun set rounded off a lovely evening of GoodGymming.
