Samina, Liz, Tabitha, Pete and Sabina all met at Papagayo to start the goodgym group run to go to Clitterhouse for gardening.

We had the usual hello chatter, "how was your week", "isn't this weather weird", "let's hope it stops raining". When we had all arrived we started the warm up.

We tied the pumpkin plants to stalks at Clitterhouse farm, then ran back to our favourite haunt.

Tabitha pulled weeds with confidence, some were more stubborn than others but had success in the end. Samina and Becka were there too

Pete and Liz were required for manual labour and weight lifting. Their tast was to move building rubbish out of sight ready for the cafe opening. There were also two extremely heavy crates to move. This was followed by weeding and sweeping.

Samina and Helen were busy "staking their claim" on the corn crop.

No more floppy stems

after expert tying to bamboo poles

and Liz and Pete did some marvelous weeding

The weeding job was very tricky, a full body work out standing up and pulling from the roots. After 30 minutes we had made a great difference but sadly were not able to remove them all...but will return soon we are sure.

We ran back to the pub for some group stretching exercises, then into our favourite pub for our usual weekly drinks.

Rebecca arrived...and everyone rejoiced

We had a round robin for the cool down stretches, followed by...

Pete and Helen had a sprint for the finish- with Pete the clear victor. After a round of stretches, we called it a night and retreated to Papagayo for a well deserved beverage.

Cheers Team Brent!
