😁 19 epic GoodGymmers met for our group run this evening - our last in the dark for a while πŸ₯³

πŸ¦Έβ€β™€οΈIn addition to that joyous news, we also had two heroes to celebrate - tonight was Abigail's 50th good deed, and Vicky recently did her 300th! Huge congratulations guys πŸ’ͺ

🍝 In honour of National Ravioli Day, we named and numbered off whilst declaring our favourite pasta dish. There was a lot of love for lasagne along with the classic spag bol, macaroni cheese and spaghetti hoops on toast 🍞

🚸We were returning to Park Grove Primary School this evening, to continue helping them with their wildlife area. Superhero Vicky met us there and gave us instructions. There was sawing, lopping, digging and transporting of various branches etc, alongside the careful vetting process of whether or not they were suitable den-building material 🌳

🫒 At one point, Vicky was heard to say:

I’ve got a slimy wet stick between my legs

🐸 A certain crew were based around the pond, on frog/newt-watch. Neville and (Sidney?) newts were identified, along with their froggy pals, which was lovely. On our way out, a hedgehog was also spotted, which topped off our evening and gave us a feel-good boost for the work we’ve been doing there πŸ¦”

πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒIt was soon time for some meet and retreat-based fitness before heading back to base (or mostly the pub).

πŸ™Œ Thank you everyone, brilliant work this evening.
