Tonight we had a hill to climb.... just our old friend Portsdown Hill, to get to St M's for our good deed.

Tonight Katie got to wear the magic cape of 200 good deeds. Well done Katie! And great displaying skills by Aoife for the pics!!

We met the new vicar, Hugo, and then set to work. 6 of us were on shed duty, emptying and refilling the shed in a tidy and ordered manner.

The remaining 4 were on picking duties, removing the litter that had blown / been thrown around the church grounds, including a Christmas Greggs bag and the usual bits of plastic and a few cans.

Once we'd got round the back of the church (still nicely cleared of ivy from our previous visits) the shed workers joined us to see how many GoodGymers you can fit in an alleyway and whether it's possible to photograph them all in one take!

Our work was done pretty quickly so we headed back down the hill with a spring in our step.

A Goldilocks task.... not too long, not to short, just right. Just like all our GoodGymers eh?!
