OMG! it was a little warm last night wasn't...... i was literally sweating doing my safety briefing. Infact everyone looked at me a little strange when i said it was time for our warm up.

This evening we headed out to the Community Hospice Shop on Welling Hight Street. On arrival we were greeted with smiling faces and a lovely cup of cool water. Boy, it was appreciated and much needed, thanks ladies. Hot or not, it was now time to get on with business. Tonights task was cleaning shelves, and help sort and clean out one of the stock cupboards. Everyone was allocated an area within the shop and cracked on. Being in the children's section we had to keep a eye on Neil as he is soon to be a father and was having an evening of checking out all the baby goods and prams. Congrats Neil we're so chuffed for you.

Here at team Bexley we don't mess about, so it wasn't long till we had sorted all the shelving and displays and moved on to the floor sweeping and hoovering. We really love these tasks as it shows just how much we can get done in such a short space of time.


After 45 minutes of grafting it was time for our compulsory photos to show off all our hard work. We then split into two groups and headed back to Crooklog to round up the evening. Big thanks to Susan for looking after the front runners, and Sarah for pushing Matt through his paces. I also want to give a shout out to Chris who pushed out a great run and walk training run with me at the back. Chris you're getting stronger every week.

It wasn't long before we were all safely back at Crooklog for our cool down and chat. I'm definitely looking forward to our social gathering at the Pizza Pad in Welling this Thursday. Well it would be rude not to look forward to it. All Bexley Goodgymers are welcome, but let us know in advance if you intend to come along.

Well thats it for this week. Next week are heading over to Welling library to tidy up and weed the front and back gardens. Its always a fun run and task. So why not sign up and join us. We'd love to have you join us.

Have a fab week everyone............
