Yay!!! We are back. It was great welcoming everyone back to a brand new year of goodgyming. Our first good deed was to Welling Library to make sure it looks the business. After our warm up we split up into our two groups. One walking and one running. Nick led the walkers, whilst Susan, Sarah and myself looked after the runners.

This evening was a nice steady 4K run. I didn't want to make our first outing of 2019 to hard. You've got to break them in slowly (snigger, snigger) On arrival at the library we split into three sections, front garden, side alley, and back car park and got straight to work. Its just amazes me how quickly we can transform an area in such a short time.

Being on the high street its also very encouraging when we get great comments from the public, some asking us what we are doing, and others saying how good its all looking. However this evening we were also asked if we were doing our community service (haha).

With all areas now looking spic and span it was time for the final photos and tidy up before heading back to base camp Crooklog. Theres always a sense of satisfaction on the run back. Everyone chatting and pushing each other to the finish, its just a brilliant feeling.
Next week we have an awesome educational task. We'd love to have you join us, so go check out our listing and get your name down. Until then have an awesome week. Tim
