The gang, with lots of new faces, gathered near the entrance to the Sovereign Center.

We welcomed Dominic and Nicole to their first GoodGym mission, although thanks to Tracy, they had heard about GoodGym from her Poole connections.

Angie and Star met us outside the Creative Kids studio and we split up into two groups. One was to help Star sort through musical equipment, and clear and area for a shelving unit to go in and then the musical instruments had to be sorted back into the shelves.

The other group was clearing out an area in the storage room to free up a shelving unit for the musical instruments. Then had to find space for costumes etc to go back into.

Lots of moving, shuffling, keeping our distance from each other and getting a good sweat on, and struggling to breathe with our masks on!!

But we got it all done in under an hour, Angie and Star were amazed and delighted!!

They would like our help more frequently on Saturdays moving forward, helping with moving equipment up and down before and after their performances.
