10th August 2016
Got official permission yesterday to tackle the Himalayan balsam up from the LNR between Ashleigh and Hendre Court. Did just over 3 hours of smashing it up with the #TidyTowns funded brushcutter with 2 really interesting chats with a couple of local dog walkers. The really interesting part of wearing a Fitbit Blaze is you can see how long I stopped to chat for (slacker).
Altogether, I burned around 1750 calories, which is around 6x the number of calories I would have burned sat in front of the telly or at the home office.
We also helped a local resident, who gave the Friends a £10 donation for our efforts. A great evening of #volunteering.
