It was a mild Monday evening and seven of the Brent Goodgym team met to take on a good deed. We warmed up and Liz led us on a speedy run to Mora Primary school. After a few moments of buzzing the bell and calling through the windows, we were let in and split ourselves into two groups for the two tasks for the evening. Liz, Pete, Sam and Lee took the trickier task (or so we thought) of carrying shelves of resources from the first floor classroom down to the Senco office on the ground floor. Meanwhile Tabitha, Samina and Helen were tasked with moving two filing cabinets of books into a newly sanded wooden cupboard in the upper hall. The school are hoping to make the upper hall a pleasant area for the children to be in, and the new cupboard was a first step. Sadly the wooden cupboard, although much easier on the eye, did not have deep enough shelves to hold the boxes and books, so we were not able close the doors once it had been filled. Realising it was not a practical solution we started moving everything back to the filing cupboards. At this point the first team had finished, so we re grouped and made our way out, with one task of the two successfully completed.

We ran backm in the daylight(!) to papagayo for a well deserved beverage and to fill the group in on our weekend activities....some had been to park run, some had hoovered the house....and one had got engaged!
