This evening we got to put not only our decorating skills to the test, but also push our muscles to the limit!

Everyone got stuck in to giving all the tortoise enclosures a lick of paint, before a splinter group helped list a massive tortoise shed on to a platform. Bernice, the task owner, thought she was going to need to hang out a local gyms to find some muscle men to help, but with a bit of logic, physics, and good old fashioned GG willpower, our little team succeeded!

We'll be back next week and hopefully more of the tortoises will be waking up to see us!

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