What do we like more than almost anything else at GoodGym? It's welcoming along new (and returning) GoodGymers!

Last night was a great occasion for exactly that reason, Area Activator Yianny and hardcore Lambeth legend Tilly were met by two 'new' members of the Lambeth Community. It was great to have Mark along for his very first session and also Katie who had previously been to tasks in Islington - with a GG t-shirt to prove it - but had been away for a while. Welcome both to the team!

Our category for last night was if you were a stuffed animal what would it be and why - we were therefore joined by a stuffed giraffe, leopard, penguin and a giant teddy bear :0)

We set off for the short hop over to Somerleyton Road / Loughborough Park to meet Jon from the Friends of Loughborough Park who was waiting for us with bunches of flyers. Organised as ever Jon had 300 or so flyers in bundles along with a handy map of the area to be covered. We had varying levels of map reading skills in the group, potentially a gap in age meant that some (ryhmes with 'scarier tractor grater') were a bit more comfortable with a good old fashioned paper map than others. Grumbles about smart phones

Anyway we set of in groups of two to hit as many of the flats and houses in the area to drum up interest and support for the FoLP to help with their weekly activities. If you are in the Loughborough Park area remember to check out the Community Missions each month as we always have a few sessions listed to help out around the park (and you get cake afterwards)!

In no time we had delivered all the flyers and it was time to meet back up and head back to Papa's. After a bit of back and forth we found each other and on arrival back at base Tilly had very kindly baked cookies for everyone - what more delicious way to end a Group Run than that??

Huge thanks to all and I look forward to seeing you at the next one.
