Rain didn't stop play

2 GoodGymers made their way to help the The Derbyshire Cricket Foundation in Derby.

Gwyn and Tracey abandoned their planned fitness session to cycle to Derbyshire Cricket Foundation because of the heavy rain, driving instead, and joined our Monday Mates in the Members Lounge in the Pavilion.

Lucy had arranged a Christmas party for us all. We got involved in setting out the tables with the quiz, puzzles, and a bit of tinsel, then sorting out the food, drinks and raffle prizes.

We had some live music from Griff at the piano, and then an active game of pass the parcel, with a different task to do for each layer of wrapping paper that came off - several involving balls that we ended up chasing around the room.

All good things come to an end, and it was soon back out in the rain again with smiles and full tummies. We'll be back with our Monday Mates next month again. Details about how to join us are here.
