Don't stop de-leafing
9 GoodGymers made their way 4.0km to help the St John's Church Hall in Chelmsford.

On a chilly Wednesday evening we caught up about our weekend's activities of Santa Fun Run Volunteering, breakfast out, and our surprise 3rd place at the quiz on Sunday. Jess asked Rich how the Santa Fun Run was, and it became clear that she had confused Andy in a white polyester beard for Rich, much to both Andy's and Rich's delight. We also heard how Andy made his way through two pairs of felt Santa trousers before/during the run, no surprise. We completed our warm up, with more complaints than last week, and Joel sped off towards the task.
As tonight was Joe's last GoodGym of 2023, he turned up appropriately dressed in his special jacket, christmas lights, and festive pyjama bottoms. This also puts him in with an excellent chance of winning the best outfit prize in the return of the GoodGym awards this year.
We had the usual high levels of socialising, so much that we had to keep reminding Rich to use his rake rather than use it to prop himself up. Other than that, lots of leaves were cleared and bins filled at St John's Church Hall!
Great work everyone, we'll be back in January for more leaf clearing.
