Tea and cake on arrival with some non-GoodGym volunteers is a great start to a task. Whilst waiting for my picnicking fellow GG Sheffield buddies to arrive I had a tour of the center from Fran. After which, us Sheff GGers, and the GG members from Huddersfield, were set on various tasks... painting, rubbish removing, sweeping and polishing to get the centre ship shape for its reopening.

Thanks for organising this. We really enjoyed it and I loved James’ trick of turning his T-shirt inside out while painting! Ben and I are from Huddersfield GG not Leeds though! 😂
