Every now and again we get to venture up one of Bristol's many hills. Rarer still, it's for the task of leafletting so even more steps. On Tuesday at least that bit was downhill!

Liam tracked us down in Queen Square and fitted right in with commiserating about the number of Bristol's bridges currently shut and playing havoc with our easy route planning. The GoodGym Swim may yet happen!

We were answering an urgent call from the Knowle West Alliance to deliver their community newsletter, The Knowledge, ahead of their big community festival day on Saturday 1st.

As well as mastering the art of letterbox pushing, we met a fair few residents and shopkeepers who were keen to know what was happening and also discovered just how weirdly wiggly Wedmore Vale is at the bottom with the numbers stopping and starting - no takers for being a postie here, thank you!

The Christmas decorations seem to have started already, or maybe they're late taking down from last year?

We'd soon finished what we think is the right road's houses but some was guesswork! Back to Queen Square for more chat and stretch, followed by chat and a drink at workout.

Back for more next week?
