I was obsessed with the moon tonight. I think it was just a phase

*9 Goodgymers ran 5.4km to meet 2 more Goodgymers to help out Ormiston Familes at the prison! *

We met and lamented the change in weather, and our mouths dropped open as a collective when The Secret Weapon Martin whipped out his courgette collection. Phwoar. Richard didn't know where to look.

We headed on out to get painting another undercoat on the benches. The incredibly thirsty benches soaked up the paint while we beavered away. Fay regaled tales of how her dad used to play football against the prison team and Sallyann helped me out with my crevice issues. Joe got stuck in with an unusual painting technique of lying on the floor, spider on the right nipple.

Thanks to Ormiston Families for having us, and especially to the helper (sorry I didn't get the name!) who brought us water. Great work everyone.

We ran back pretty quickly trying to look out for the supermoon/ blue moon but alas nothing. Erin and I even got mugged off by Joel, for shame for shame.

After we got back we handed out Athletic Brewing tasty brews and planned socials. Back Inn Time after a GG session this month and a fancy dress bar crawl in October! Watch this space for dates! Pub quiz this Sunday at the Ale House too!
