Instead of a quiz this month at Abbeyfield Wessex, the GoodGymers got down to a spot of DIY. Firstly Eleanor, Mohammed, Daryl and Caprice met for the short Group Run to the session. Like true British weather they had a bit of drizzle for the run but it didn't dampen their spirits. They were met by manager Nicky who prior to their arrival had prepped three benches ready for sanding and a new coat of paint. She also showed them two gazebos that needed to be erected. Luckily the rain stopped as quickly as it had started but Nicky had the great idea to build the gazebos and then if it rained they could use them as a shelter, genius!! Mohammed and Daryl got to work sanding the benches whilst Nicky, Eleanor and Caprice put up both gazebos. Once the gazebos were secured they then joined Mohammed and Daryl with the sanding. Once the benches had been sanded down the group then got to the fun bit... Painting. They love a painting task. After a coat of paint Nicky thanked the group for all their help. We will be back their next month, most likely for a social to spend some time with our good friends. See you there!!
