Remember that bit in Matilda?

Firstly, shout out to Kelsey for her first GG session! Shout out to Ian for back marking and getting the bin bag! Shout out to Nathan who made his way down from GG Southwark! Shout out to James for getting his DBS check sorted so he can help out older people, and shout out to everyone else for being rad.

We kicked off the evening with the great debate - DogGym or no DogGym - should people with pooches be allowed to bring them along??? DogGym won but there were a few abstentions and a couple of no's so we'll leave them out for the mo. Mark says no bark. 🐶

Rubbish GoodGym

Bit of a glitch this evening - we were meant to be cutting back at Captain Sensible but we arrived to no host... ooooops. Luckily for us, there was plenty of rubbish a a fair few weeds dotted around the place. Ian grabbed a bag from a local shop - we filled it up easily, and left a nice pile of weeds too. Job done in 5 minutes. And we left it spotless so it'll look delightful in the daylight!

On the way back we did a bunch of weird and wonderful exercises for the quads - from NSEW tip toeing to Hungarian one-legged squats(??). Safe to say we were weak at the knees afterwards (in a good way).

Nice one everyone! And sorry for the slip up. Cool pics though.

Next week is a Halloween special - dress up if you like! We'll be painting some walls ghostly white at the Young Lewisham Project - sign up here. 👻
