We get asked to do a lot of random stuff at GoodGym Newcastle but after five years its rare that there is a true "first" and we got one tonight!

We love to help our friends at Stepney Bank Stables who kindly loan us the use of their facilities and allow us to store our stuff every week. Tonight to help them prepare for a big renovation job at the working stables, we'd been asked to come and measure each of the stables ahead of the big overhaul. Thankfully in freezing cold rain, this task was under cover and we were even joined by horsey friends Polly and Maestro.

This required steady hands, careful precision and excellent handwriting and this team was just the ticket. Stables expertly measured, forms filled in and horses patted before trotting back to the main building.

We finished off tonight with some Pilates exercises timed by my bleepy timer then some deep breathing exercises to set us up for a good week.

Stepney Bank Stables could do with some support. If you can spare anything at all, please donate to their JustGiving page.
