We had numerous helpers turning up and everyone was given a job. All floors were brushed and mopped, all surfaces dusted, windows and displays cleaned, the fridge emptied, carpets vacuumed and every corner tidied up.
After everything was cleaned, shifu Shi Yanmin blessed the temple in a short Buddhist ceremony and everyone enjoyed a warm cup of tea.
Thank you very much to all volunteers that helped to make this cleaning evening a short and enjoyable task, so we could all go home early.
We wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new Year and looking forward to welcome everyone back into a clean and tidy space after all the festivities.
