7 GoodGymer's ran and walked to clear leaves at St John's Church Hall

After what seemed like a reasonably quick run to St John's Church Hall, the runners were surprised to see the walkers already at the task with rakes in hand. Well done Fay, Sallyann and Joe on what must have been speed walking!

Andy, Jenny and Martin grabbed themselves some tools and a bin too and got to work clearing leaves and chatting.

We had to mention a couple of times that we'd finished and were tidying up, with Andy in a constant stream of chatting and Joe taking his anger out with a spade and very full bins of leaves.

Next week we're going to Writtle GP surgery and we'll be starting our run in Central Park rather than the Old Factory - sign up here

We're also going to the Ale House Pub Quiz on the 5th of March [sign up here], and we're arranging a Sunday Lunch in late March or April.

See you soon,
