It was a funny night and the world wanted to conspire against us but GoodGym had a mission to get to as the walls at Searchlight were not going to paint themselves.

A quick warm up in the park and Rachel, Dave, Saber, Gemma and Claire were off and running up the road towards Searchlight.

Martel had prepped the room for painting when we arrived so we had the best bit left painting and a bit of rubbing down.

Dave rubbed down the windows whilst Gemma, Rachel and Claire started painting the walls and Saber nearly painted the sanded window frames.

After an hour the room looked whiter than white and we enjoyed a quick chocolate treat before running back to the Quaker Centre with our mission accomplished.
