What a great turnout for Bexley Goodgym tonight. The running conditions this evening were mear on perfect. With a last minute change of task we were now heading over to our friends at the Danson Youth Centre to help them our with a lot of gardening and clearing up. The team split up into two groups, the runners and the power walkers. After our usual warm up loop it was time for the off. As Nick was away on holiday Susan and Sarah looked after the runners and i looked after the walkers.

We arrived at Danson Youth Centre to a warm welcome. Its been a little while since we had been here last so the list of jobs had been growing, so we split into two teams to try and get as much done as possible.

In the short time we had we cleared and swept the back car park, trimmed back the bushes in the main car park, and finally tidied up the side gardens the best we could with the time we had left. Running a little over our time it was then time to make a fast run back to Crooklog. Last one back buys the coffees ;-) always gets people moving.

LAST ONE BACK BUYS THE COFFEES

This was a brilliant task tonight. We had loads to do and everyone worked awesome together. Thanks everyone for hard work tonight.............. Tim
