What goes up must come back down

3 runners ran to help an isolated older person in Hackney.

On a wet and windy Tuesday night Anne, Jatin and I met in Hackney to give Mrs E a hand rearranging some furniture. It was a simple task of moving a folded bed upstairs and a sofa bed back down, the opposite of the job previously done by some other GoodGymers. Although we were initially a bit concerned about negotiating the stairs it all went very smoothly, especially thanks to Mrs Eā€™s handy tip of taking the sofa bed out the front door rather than getting it stuck on a tight corner. Within 20 minutes we were done leaving plenty of time for us to take a bad photo and for Anne and Jatin to get to the hackney group run.
