Reasons to be happy !

This evening turned out to be of those real feel good special evenings where it felt like a warm fuzzy feel good few hours spent with great company.

Could one of the reasons for this be because Daisy was back on her 28th task with us?! So VERY good to have you return to the GG fold.

Or maybe it was because Jay also returned and even better, brought along a surprise for us in the shape of - Katharine Together they brought news that they will be moving back to Worthing soon :) Tonight was Jays 97th task so 100th celebrations are in the planning. Also notable was that is was Katharine's 105 good deed ! Kudos to you too:)

Paul, JohnBelinda and Ricky also joined us making a nice tidy group of 8.

New venue - new task -one for Irene

This evening we were at Lindfield House. This centre is one that Guildcare manage to provide a caring bespoke environment to support people with dementia. This coming weekend they are having a summer party, hence why we were asked to help with giving the garden a really good spruce up.

With minimal tools at our disposal we did the best we could to dead head, prune, sweep, rake and water. With the relatively compact are of the courtyard garden it was easy to enjoy some great conversation amongst us all. Belinda observed that just over the railings, in Victoria Park, was where GG Worthing all began back in 2017!

I observed the several tributes in the garden to residents and especially 'Irene's bench'

Very soon the green bin was full. In all honesty we could have stayed all day but we will definitely be returning!

Cheers to good times and good people

With the Brew House so close it would have been rude not to avail ourselves of a well earned drink - so we did! and there finished a very happy evening of work and play.

Have a great week and see you all next time :)

I love the concept of getting physically and mentally fit whilst combining it with helping others. I run most days.
