A big welcome BACK to Toni who has changed her job and got a puppy (amongst other things) since we last saw her.

Tonight's mission was to build some shelves for SPARK. We'd been warned that it might be like a giant meccano but with Dave's engineering brain and Jo's flat pack experience we managed to put together a total of 7 (I think!) sets of shelves.

Those who didn't want to build were able to sand and varnish some tables.

If we'd been playing innuendo bingo, we'd have got a full house for sure.... screws, holes, flaps all got various amounts of airtime. This is the real reason that GoodGym is for adults only 🤣

We packed up feeling like we'd made a good effort (& all without ruining the brand new carpet) and then Judy became Artistic Director and got us to make our logo. Larry the dog was either entertained or totally confused... much like us!

We've already had this lovely message from Becki:

Thank you so much for fun, laughter and your kindness xxx awesome group
