7 GoodGymers made their way to help the Fratton Big Local in Portsmouth.

We joined Fratton Big Local for their annual lantern parade.
Our first job was getting all the lanterns lit up, which was an incredibly fiddly process. The lantern makers then started to arrive so it was all hands on deck to reunite lantern with maker, or hand out spare donated lanterns.
Teeny GoodGymer Felix had lots of fun giving the lanterns cuddles!
The rest of the team carried lanterns whilst trying to keep parade goers and excited members of the public on the allocated half of the road. Having the rolling road closure this year made the whole event feel bigger and safer for everyone involved, which was super.

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