Our Second group task of the year and a return to Samye Foundation. Today 15 of the goodgym Cardiff Crew got together for the task at hand. We split into our two groups, the walkers making their way straight to the task, whilst Michael led the runners a longer way around to make up their KMs.

We soon made our way to Samye and were welcomed by the lovely Lorraine, with water ready to quench our thirsts. Tonight we were;

  • Cleaning under the gazebo and weeding so that it would be spruced up ready for the locals to be able to sit under there.
  • Weeding the back yard space, again to allow the locals to use the enjoy the space and get it Spring ready.
  • Finally after all the green finger work it was more green finger work - panting the shed a nice green.

Speaking of green fingers.......Who has ever seen this wonderfully weird character...........Green Claws

But I digress, the lights were put out so that each team could see their task at hand. Those at the front swept, weeded and made it all look as good as new. All the leaves swept were put into the planters to keep the bulbs that were sprouting nice and warm. Out back we were going feral on all fours as any weed between paving slabs were removed and bagged up, whilst the painters got to work turning the shed from Red to Green.

Tools down - it's time for some soup to warm us up and get us fuelled up to head back.

The Shed will need some additional work - I feel a repeat task coming UP...
