14 GoodGymers shouting each others names, 4 tennis balls, a couple running round in circles and we had a perfectly chaotic warm up. And everyone got a quick reminder of each others names! Oli, Julian, Paul, Sarah...glad I had a reminder, I'd never of remembered their names! Just joking my wonderful regulars!!

This week it was off the The Albany, which is a great Theatre in Deptford but also a hot spot for rubbish.

Our tasks for the evening were to patrol the perimeter (and the rest of the garden) to see what litter we could find. We usually find some gems and this week I'd say less gem and more disgusting - a nappy which I'm reliably informed was used.

The second group tackled the weeds in between the paving stones. There was also the mandatory lesson in sweeping from Paul. Isaac is now an expert sweeper!

It wasn't long before we lost daylight and we were all weeding. A good reminder that it is now most definitely head torch season.

We have a brand new task next week and we're heading to the Young Lewisham Project to help with the painting. Remember to wear your oldest GG top that you don't mind getting paint splatters on.
