First of all, thank you to Dr Jo for providing delicious treats that also gave us a title for the Run Report!
We teamed up with some of the staff from Trafalgar Medical Group as well as some local counsellors for this Heavy Duty GoodGym Task. Tony and Dave got to work with a heavy duty hammer and crowbar to lever up the paving slabs at the front of the Health Centre, whilst the rest of us tested our biceps to the limits carrying the slabs round to the back garden.
Maura and Judy worked hard tidying the borders and outside of the Health Centre, removing plenty of litter and lots of twigs and leaves. The rest of the team spent their time shovelling stones in to a central pile, which we will transport round to the front during our follow up task on Saturday - sign up here if you'd like to help out!
The team from Trafalgar Medical Group were incredibly grateful for our help. Dr Jack has sent over the following message of thanks for us all. Well done everyone!
Thanks for all the help today, you were all brilliant. Got some good news. The workmen on the road outside have agreed to turn over the earth at the front and drop a load of top soil down for us tomorrow. Please feedback to your fellow GoodGymers - it's all coming together!

Area Activator for GoodGym Portsmouth. I swear like a sailor, burp like a foghorn. Human A - Z of Portsmouth. Ultimately charming.
