Report written by Tom Mutton
We had two new runners join us last night, a BIG GG welcome to:
Give them both a woop, hola, cheer and a follow!
Both Alba and Tom enjoyed the session and said they would be back for more, so it will be great to see them again soon!
This weeks task was a great one up at Heeley City Farm where we met Julie Blacker at the office, who gave us a quick run down of the evenings activities. The task was to move big wet logs from the bottom of a field, up and out of the field and into a poly tunnel where they can be dried out and cut, ready for sale to the public, with all funds going back into on site projects.
It was slippery under foot in the field where the logs were stacked so the first job was to lay down some scaffolding for us to walk and wheel our way across with barrows full of wood. We love a good plank at GG, so this was no probs at all.
We all managed a good number of loads with minimal spillage along route. We even had time to check out all of the animals on the farm including pigmy goats and pregnant pigs!
Julie was very thankful to us all and passed on her thanks from Nigel who is normally lumbered with this job..
Until next time, happy running! :)
