This task was to help at the Norwich Love Light Festival.

With the weather rather wet all afternoon combined with the aftermath of Storm Eunice, I wasn't confident many people would turn out in the city for this cultural event.

Luckily, my instincts were wrong, as there was an array of people all around the city centre, and really did give off a vibe of normality returning.

A big welcome to Susie, who was taking part in her first GoodGym adventure.

Myself, Susie, Bobbie, Beks and Penny checked in at The Forum with the advent organisers. We were going to be acting as 'runners' so walking/jogging around the city centre to ensure the stationary marshals had all they needed and everything was going smoothly.

We even had our own walkie talkie, which Beks kindly took responsibility of, apart from when she had to assist with diverting traffic from the road closure.

It was a pleasant evening that felt like Covid was behind us.
