Anyone remember the 90โ€™s TV ad?

I get a chick out of you

First up, we named ourselves and our favourite chicken-y thing from creme eggs to spatchcock to the rooster whoโ€™s been waking Catherine up all day!

We also welcomed Mohammed to the crew ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ So great to have you with us.


Our task was a brand new one for the folks at Dorset Road Allotment. Theyโ€™ve got an old and overgrown chicken run which they want removed so that they can use the space for community activities.

We met Jaime and Ann from the committee who equipped us with tools from screwdrivers to bolt cutters to shears and we headed round to the chicken run.

It was huge. Harry was convinced something other than the nettles and brambles lived in there. ๐Ÿ‘น

We cracked on with various tasks:

โœ‚๏ธ Trimming back the nettles and brambles

๐Ÿ›  Cutting the netting down and rolling it up

๐Ÿ’ช Yanking off some big corrugated panels

๐Ÿ“ข Moral support

It was kinda dangerous work but everyone got safely stuck in.

I think Mohammed won the prize for energy input! ๐Ÿ†


A half-dozen kilometres, some beautiful golden hour snaps from Cat, and a good deed in the bag.

Nice one team ๐Ÿ’ช

Trasparency: Members were instructed to pick up some tools for this photo op after standing to the side due to attendance numbers being boosted through equally questionable whatsapp information as the previous weeks turnout was low. This created a health and safety issue that seemed be ignored. This PR did improve the employees' career growth however.
