5 Goodgymers returned to the Kenilworth Centre to help deep clean the upstairs kitchen.

After a short jog from Abbey Fields to the Centre, we were ready to get stuck in lifting some serious stains from the kitchen floor.

Having had a few issues locating the right mop the first time around, we were delighted to find that all the necessary cleaning equipment had been nicely laid out for us in the cleaning cupboard. So armed with mops, brushes, industrial strength paint stripper and Henry the hoover, we made our way upstairs.

Lilian and Alex got to work pulling white goods out of the walls while Nigel was tasked with making the journeys up and down the stairs to sort out our water supply. While the scrubbing was taking place behind the fridges, Katherine got busy with the vacuum, ensuring that the space was clear and ready for a good mop.

Cue Allan who joined us halfway through and took the reins, getting rid of our muddy footprints and making sure that all the areas that Nigel scrubbed got a final once-over. Judging by the brown puddles being wiped away, it’s a good job he did!

Once all the equipment had been replaced and Lilian had the chance to wipe down every available surface, we headed outside to the MUGA for a quick fitness session. Taking it in turns to come up with a brutal exercise for the group to complete, we definitely met our S&C goals for the week.

After a quick jog down Abbey Hill and stretch, we were done for the evening!
