This morning, five keen beans went to Kingswood house (former home of "Mr Brovril"), to help Kingswood Arts, who have recently taken over the lease of the building from Southwark council. This is the last full week of preparation that they have before they will open to the public, and there was still lots to do!

We helped by stripping the walls and cleaning everything. There was so much furniture in the room, and we had to keep moving it about to be able to get to all the areas of wall, so this was an extremely active task. (An extra well done to Rose and Diane for running to the task, despite all the hills! 💪🦵)

We also welcomed Aleksandra to her first task 🥳 - she did a meticulous job of cleaning many tables, and well done for picking up the endless task of sweeping all the dust that we were bringing up! 👏

The two hours passed very quickly, and we tidied up in time to leave. As we left, we managed to give away on leaflet to an interested local, and James gave some good touristing tips to Aleksandra of the local area. Community comes in all forms at Goodgym! 💛
