Congratulations to regular runner Rosie Robbins on reaching the remarkable achievement of 50 good deeds! She started her Goodgym adventure back in the day up north in that there London, but London's loss is Brighton's gain and for the past two years or so she's been good deeding down south. And let's not forget what a great social secretary she was back in the good old days when we were allowed to have social lives!

At the other end of the Goodgym range of experience we were very happy to welcome Lucy for her first Brighton good gym (another refugee from the big city, having previously completed a couple of good deeds in Lambeth!) and Nathan discovering the joys of Goodgym for the very first time.

Our task tonight was to help the residents of the Craven Vale Estate tidy up. We connected with Garry from the council's Tidy up Team to supply us with bags and tools, so armed with proper litter pickers and bag holding hoops half the group had a good old litter pick. The rest of us using , scrapers, spades, brooms and forks weeded the bed in front of the block and tidied up the weedy kerbs and steps to make it easier for residents to get in and out. David from the litter picking group reported seeing a frog or toad cross the road and thought we might get a pun out of it but my punning brain is not working tonight! And Sherman found some kids shoes and despite normally being our best photographer only managed to get one good pic! Sadly my new phone hasn't improved my night time photography skills so the photos don't really demonstrate what a difference we made! Well done all!
