On a chilly Monday evening some of the usual suspects had the pleasure of welcoming Herman & Tina for their first ever Goodgym group session!

They did join in at the 3-weekly Foodbank session last Saturday and bravely ignored the chilly weather to come and visit the Baby Bank.

As per usual, Linda kindly took charge of the walking group, chased down by the runners, with pretty good timings to arrive at the Cornerstone Church at roughly the same time as Julia by bike.

Adam was waiting, bags ready to be sorted, labels on the tables, kettle boiling - all the ingredient for a nice evening sorting (and posing with) baby clothing ready for a very welcome care package for a mom in need of a helping hand.

Time flew past and before we realised the bags were sorted, results packed away and with a smile the crew went back walking / running / riding.... see you in 6 weeks, Baby Bank
