Another exquisite pun courtesy of Hannah ✌️😜

Another post-covid attendance record smashed.

And another session making some serious progress at the Water Tower. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ’¦πŸ’¦πŸ’¦πŸš’πŸš’πŸš’

Shout out to Molly, Dani and Emma for attending their first GG sesh. So nice to have you join us.

We kicked off in the Bridge House with names and board games - some classics and some clearly quite complex choices. And then we did a brisk warm up before splitting in 3.

Cat and the speeders sped out and round the park. Hannah and Angela formed the walking contingent and the rest of us took the winding route through the park.

We arrived almost in sync, met history genius John, and headed into the tower. As usual, our tasks were varied:

🌱 Pulling out many wee weeds

πŸ›’ Shovelling in and shaking soil through the trolley

πŸ’° Bagging up the good stuff (which we'll use for our GoodGym garden in Betts Park) πŸ˜‰

πŸ“· I was trying to take some nice profile pics for people. I'm no photographer though, so they suck, sorry.

After 30 minutes, we called it a day, having made another massive dent in the project, which will one day mean that the public can access the tower during their museum experience. We posed for some peace-ing and then hit the road, back to the pub for some stretching and beverages.

Massive props to everyone πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
