Welcome to Brighton Goodgym to Daniel, great to have you along for your first run and good deed!

We started our run as a four, got caught in the nick of time by Rebecca picked up Katharine & Amroalong the way and by the time we got to Manor Paddock we were the magnificent seven!

Manor Paddock is a council run senior’s housing scheme with a garden looked after by resident Luc. Much of the garden had been taken over by onion bulbs which Luc had removed and our task was to replace them with a selection of nice bulbs including narcissi, crocosmia and tulips. Armed with dibbers and trowels we set to work and were advised by Luc that dibbing was best! Meanwhile Daniel & Amro competed for top spot in the Great Brighton Rake Off and bagged up loads of leaves from the lawn to make compost.

A quick fitness session of ramp sprints and squats followed, and eventually some of us actually warmed up!
