It’s Kingston Carnival time!
3 GoodGymers made their way to help the Kingston Carnival in Kingston upon Thames.
- Sunday, 3rd of September 2023
- Led by Petra Stockelmayerova
What a great way to start a Sunday morning! Rachel, Petra and Andy met at The Guildhall by Kingston Market Place to decorate the trucks that were joining in the procession. We were given bags of material and decorations and we headed round the back to where the trucks were parked.
The Glendale trucks were flatbed trucks that were being loaded with music equipment to lead the carnival. It was important that these trucks were transformed to reflect the colour and high energy of the procession so we set to work.
We hung, we wrapped and we grip tied until we ran out of decorations. We even used a red Christmas tree to hide the boring signage at the back of the truck - sorry Santa! By the end of the task the trucks were transformed and they were certainly more in keeping with the vibe of the day.
To reward our efforts we popped to a local cafe for a sausage sandwich and a cuppa before heading to the next task at the Hogsmill. Petra headed off to airport and Rachel and Andy later bumped into each other at the festival - what a great day!
Welcome to GoodGym Andy - well done on achieving your first task.
