Tonight we ran over to the Tang Hall School allotment to help tidy it up a little. Recent rain had caused the weeds to shoot up and the edges of the allotment were heavily overgrown, particularly with brambles.

After some brief instruction on what constitutes a weed and what constitutes a wanted plant (“if there is lots of it, it's probably a weed”) we set to work. In no time at all four large rubble bags were full to overflowing and no one fell in the pond - result!

Off then to Glen Gardens for some fitness with the “cones of misery”. Team volcano were set on keeping the cones the way up nature intended, while the dastardly team crater were flipping them. Some dubious sporting behaviour saw Mitch and Laura in a head to head stalemate of flipping and Nikki looked like she was sitting on Abigail to thwart her.

Then back to base for a cool down (in the baking heat) and then to the Ackhorne for a more effective beer-based cool down
