7 goodgymers made their way, by bike, foot and public transport to the regular task of the Richmond Furniture Scheme. Getting straight to it with a litter pick to make the outside area more attractive Sam and Adam grabbed a broom or two and started sweeping. Resourceful types we fixed the broom that was losing its head, (like Arsenal nearly did later that day), and made short work of the tidy up. Sam decided a window mop and a snow scoop was the best tool for the job, but it seemed to do a pretty good job.

Emma, and Beth returned for GoodGym tasks 3 and 4 respectively and were quick to muck in and help. Nadine had been roped in early to dragging Henry the hoover around the place, and we didn’t realise it but she was covertly completing her first GoodGym task.

Moving on to furniture we made light work of moving a lamp to the sold storage, and hunted about for other things that could be moved. An hour or so later and we were on our merry way for coffee and cake, finally able to say hi properly to Nadine. Well done everyone, especially those new comers. So good to have you as part of the gang today!
