Goodgym ain’t got time for that!
We’ve got the January challenge to complete!!
Whoever came up with that statement must be cursing GoodGym, despite the horrid weather conditions we still keep going energiser/Duracell ain’t got @#T on us!
Last night was no exception either it wasn’t wet but there sure were some icy winds blowing leading up to the task, yet 14 brave runners including a tourist all the way from Bexley Matt turned out to do what we do best.
Having done our usual formalities we ran ran 3.5km to Legacy Youth Zone to build a green house and a compost heap. When we arrived Angela was there awaiting us with a massive smile to greet us, once we signed in we were taken through to the outdoor space where all the stuff for us to do was explained.
Those who wanted to build the green house went one direction while the rest of us went to the back of the garden some lifting pallets, some raking leaves and some offering construction ideas on how to build the compost bin.
Wearing her new tee with pride was our newest member of the 100 Club Ingrid.
Through the laughter and chatter we completed our task and before we said our good byes we had a few games of rock, paper, scissors where the looser did sprints and the winner did squats. Just as we decided to change the activities the light went out and we had to call it a night.
As it was last Tuesday of the month there were a few social drinks at the George.
Next week, we'll be spreading the word about Croydon healthy homes to the Broad Green residents come along and help us get the word out to the residents about what they can do to help cut the cost of keeping their homes warm in the winter months.
