That 12 days of (GG) Christmas was incredible...your talent is endless!

Looks like we might have managed this socially distanced and outdoor Christmas Carol task in the nick of time. Residents at Worsnop House and John Lampon Court watched, sang and clapped along from the comfort of their living rooms and balconies as the super talented Emily provided the music and Ella rekindled her GG version of The 12 Days of Christmas! For some of the GG Colchester squad it was the first taste of our Christmas carols and I am sure it will not be the last.

In my day job, at home and at Goodgym there has been a lot of time to share and appreciate each others unique Christmas traditions. This weird couple of years has given us all time to reflect and by gosh it is amazing how adaptable everyone is. The patience people show, the caring and the understanding and I hope that is the most contagious thing to come from COVID - with Goodgym leading by example.

In this reflective, festive time of year it is so important to celebrate difference and culture. Would you like to write a run report...make it into a reflective space to share some wisdom and what Goodgym means to you? Tell us about you memorable Christmas times or what you celebrate in your family?

Oh yeh, and welcome to Lottie for a chilly sing song.
