28 people caused no constitutional outrage in Camden, ran over 5km and helped Cecil Sharp House!

As Westminster was hell bent on tearing the country down we had the certainty that bringing a group together, doing some running and offering up our services to help others would bring calm and happiness and so it did!

Tonight we continued Goodgym's partnership with Team GB and learnt that people are not fans of badges! However we're pleased to support the initiative to get people more active and we have some great photos to prove it!

Once the photoshoot was done (thanks Freya and Rosie) we gathered for a rather disjointed intro welcoming Laurent and Ramona for their first ever GoodGym session and taking in the news of the social next week, community missions at Story Garden and all the health and safety and then with a quick warm up done... we were off!

With varying abilities in the group we soon decided to split into two and Rosie led the keener group ahead. At Cecil Sharp we heard from Susannah about the building and why our help is so important. This week we were working on making the grounds and garden look their prettiest. We split into two groups with 10 at the front sweeping and weeding and the remainder at the back doing the same with some additional tasks to keep everyone busy!

With it being a big job and with lots to do we worked hard for 40mins and got everything done. Susannah was very grateful and reckoned we'd done over two days worth of work! A job very well done.

After some group photos in the fading light we were off, again with two groups. We made good progress back to the Crick, stretched and then headed to the pub or home!

Thanks everyone, Frances is in charge next week as we head to Alara, you can sign up here!
