After a rather sweaty run up from the Lido, we were greeted by Val and Louis with some refreshing glasses of iced water.

As well as our planned garden tidy up, Louis from St Michael's said he had a bit of a random job for us, and in true GoodGym Portsmouth fashion we agreed before finding out what it was! The team sprang in to action and did an epic job of splitting a large donation of dry dog food in to smaller bags for local residents to use. I'm not sure how the very specific 2.45 mugs of kibble per bag came in to being, but the end result looked very professional.

The other half of the team undertook some litter picking and weeding around the church site, and the flower beds were looking much neater and tidier by the end of the session.

Duncan has proved himself to be a master selfie-taker this evening, I might need to allocate him this role every week!

Area Activator for GoodGym Portsmouth. I swear like a sailor, burp like a foghorn. Human A - Z of Portsmouth. Ultimately charming.
