Report written by Brighton runner
With so many new hands, and a great turn out tonight's task really didn't take us long to get to work! We were greeted by Ron at Somerset House, a senior residence in Kempton who was "just looking for a little help" in the garden. With weeds to be banished from the paving and clearing the rose beds we cleared at least 12 (my best guess please correct me if you counted!) black bags of green waste and litter.
With so much completed a small group went to the car park to tackle a corner that was VERY over grown. There was a lot to do but that corner was cleared! Check out the photos for the before and after! We will be back to take on the rest of that car park. While this was going on, our very own Jason did a little DIY to fix a memorial water feature that hadn't been working.
With the heat we didn't make it to a fitness session tonight, though I'm sure there was plenty of arm work outs at the pub(!) If you'd like to take things slow and do some Yin Yoga to stretch out your hips, a problem area for runners, cyclers and walkers, please check out this video.
