Thursday 6:15pm is GoodGym Windsor Night! 👑🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️

Tonight we were doing a double bill with not one but two acts of kindness 👏🏻 💪🏻

Helen ( who had just run the London Marathon 🏃🏻‍♀️ 👏🏻🎖️), Devon and Mandy met at The Binoy for a social run and Sue, Adam and Margaret (her debut GoodGym session 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻) met us at the task.

Then the show began …. Or was it a circus 🤣

For our first act we met our task owner Anne at Busy Buttons (St Agnes Church) and Anne kindly showed us the church garden. We de-weeded the gravel drains, broke down and moved some old wooden furniture and other rubbish to the front of the church to be collected and swept/made tidy. Devon even did a bit of guttering clearance !

After the interval (as in us hot footing to the pathway near the church with our belongings) we got to work for our second task. We had done some work here in the dark but we had not quite finished it so we did that tonight. Devon and Adam had a great technique and were very neat and precise and polished. Mandy less so 🤣 she kept getting her lines all wrong 🤣 although Helen did keep her in check. Sue and Margaret attached the brambles. We filled three bags which is amazing in the time we had.

Soon it was time for the final curtain and we took a bow, gave ourselves an huge round of applause and made our way home.

Thank you all as always Windsor GGs 👑 ♥️👏🏻
