No slacking , more puffing (Jemmie's motivational quote for the evening)

On a beautiful warm March evening we walked/ ran over to one of our favourite tasks at Bugcycle Garden in Beach House Gardens. This community project is run by Creative Waves, aka Nadia and Nessie.

It was so great to have a lovely light, still evening to work with after all the dark winter evenings.

Roll of honour tonight was as follows John,Ricky, Paul, Anne ,Belinda,Gillybean,DuncanRosalind, Paula and last but not least Tamsin with special mini GoodGymer Jemmie !

We had a variety of tasks including Paul's planting a large palm like shrub ( see the before and after photos) . Nadia also asked us to clear the 'lounge ' area where there were piles of bricks and wood and rubbish that needed moving.

There was also a lot of weeding and watering done together with a wheelbarrow run to the green bin!

Lapping it up

Jemmie was keen to get the group doing some fitness so together with Anne, Ros and Mum, Tamsin she led the group on a lap of the park. Whilst the 3 of them continued on another lap, Jemmie and I plotted a fitness game to keep the group busy on their return. This comprised of a variety of functional body weight exercises including step ups, lunges, jumping jacks, shuttle runs and jump squats.

*Need to run home for a leek (Paul's quote of the evening) *

Before we knew it the evening was over and we managed to get a great group photo. Nadia invited us to help ourselves to the leeks that we had dug up to take home and cook.

Next week we will take a break for the bank holiday but Gill we be working her magic at Worthing leisure Centre this Wednesday.

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter and bank holiday weekend.
