Tonight we had a fantastic turnout considering the less than favourable weather conditions. It was great to welcome Naneesh for the first time.

With Liam doing the front marker job and George the back, we set on our way in the wind and rain. On arrival we were met by Kandy who works for a company called Renascence. She was here to ask some of the group how the environment effects their opportunities to take part in exercise. John, David and Balal did that while the rest of the group helped sort clothing upstairs and Ryan and John helped out in the kitchen.

As there was a lot of sorting to do tonight, we were at the task a long time, which actually worked well with the weather outside. Therefore there wasn’t time for a fitness session on finishing, so the group headed straight back to 1000 Trades.

Next week we will be out doing good again, it would be great if you could join us sign up here.
