The 45 or so of us, were split into four groups, our group tasked with clearing a concrete-lined brook. Naturally our side of the brook did the best job, and finished first - now that's team work. I tidied, lopped branches, shovelled crap while Ms. R's sister swept and her boyfriend scraped every last bit of moss off the sides. Ms. R was the real star, zooming ahead scraping weeds and moss out of the cracks and seams in the concrete - she was just a little dot on the horizon.
We got food, drinks and tickets to a concert in the Royal Albert Hall, in return for 4 hours of our hard work. The concert looks awful, but it's free, so what the hell. On the upside, I got interviewed for the Orange website with Ms. R's sister, in the unlikely event we don't get edited out, I'll post the link.
Edit: No video yet, but we've been posted on their Flickr Gallery.
Having driven for two hours to get there, we were both shattered, and promptly slept all of Sunday - a good day's hard work I think.
