All Good Gymmers turned up, on time, bright eyed and bushy tailed only to find the two task owners were running late. Irfan was gathering supplies on his way in, Gen didn't give a reason but possibly a lie in being bit de-mob happy given it was her last session. The shelves had already been filled the night before so we took time to chill and catch up on gossip.

Once we did get underway it was the usual organised chaos with Irfan's delivery being put away as we started getting on with the packing lists. The gates to the car park were stuck closed causing problems for the drivers conversely the building doors seemed to be stuck open making it a chilly job today. Someone thought they were being helpful by numbering a spare trolley (you know who you are😂) but it was left out of sequence and the subsequent confusion meant a package was missed.

As ever these issues were all taken in our stride with everyone working as a team to resolve them and it all got done in time for lunch.
