We welcomed Nikki to her first ever GoodGym task tonight, and Sharon to her first Group Run this evening - welcome to the madness, guys!

Our task also took us to a new beneficiary this evening in the form of The Repair Cafe and Library of Things team. Their amazing aim is to promote repairing and sharing as a way of reducing waste - check out their website here.

Clare had literally only just received the keys for their new premises so we were some of the first to get stuck in with the makeover of the space. We got to work peeling tape off the floors, scraping glue off the walls and removing velcro from every conceivable surface. Sharon and Tracey got scrubbing in the kitchen space, which has definitely not seen a damp cloth in a while!

Our visit was rounded off with a biscuit and offers to come and help out again - I'm sure we'll be back in the not to distant future!

I swear like a sailor, burp like a foghorn. Human A - Z of Portsmouth. Ultimately charming.
