Team Kat(ie)s

Fri 15 Jan
Report written by Katie Carew-Robinson

This afternoon it was all about the Kats.... Kat, Katie, Katie all stood in the reception area of the surgery holding our covid tests and chatting about how it would be easy for the others to remember our name today!

We had outdoor jobs today for most of our shift and spent lots of time doing steps and star jumps to keep warm.

Not too much excitement to report today apart from a police officer writing in his notebook... Only a note about how to volunteer!! And a few dodgy parking / driving manoeuvres round the one way system. We also got a couple of hot drinks and a Viennese biscuit 🍪 (yum).

Lots of more vaccinations completed today including some key workers. 👍 Progress is happening.

We will be assisting the social prescribing team with the administrative side of the vaccination clinics.

  • directing patients from the clinic rooms to the post-vaccine waiting area

PPE will be provided if needed. Even the indoor jobs can be a little cold as the doors are open for ventilation so please bring plenty of layers. Tea and coffee is available as well as a supply of biscuits!

Legs Eleven, Get Up and Run (31), Have Fun (41)

Wed 13 Jan
Report written by Sinéad McCarthy

Everyone did so well! Lots of photos, some great selfies (excluding my own) and a few us got some interesting looks, plus lots of extra kms for the January Challenge!

Jo and Rachel got a head start on the challenge on Sunday getting 9/9 items.

A special mention to Andi for completing her first GG training session of the year! and Jen who actually climbed up the tree for her photo. Plus found some obscene graffiti.

Others who were also successful in getting all 9 items were; Katie , Katie , Rosie and myself!

Judy was close with 8/9 but she lives somewhere that has no graffiti but lots of yellow cars and traffic cones. Her christmas remnant was a leftover xmas pudding? Yes leftover xmas pudding..

Catherine also got 8/9 because she didn't find a clock, should've asked for Mauras advice as she took a photo of her clock at home or Kat who sneakily did it in two runs (but will let them off as we need those kms).

While Lucy enjoyed a nice walk around Portchester. Well Done All!

(P.S. My first run report....)

Linking Portsmouth’s History

Sun 10 Jan
Report written by Mel Saxbee

The Millenium route is three kilometres of linked pathway taking in the Promenade, starting at Spur Redoubt near Clarence Pier,ending at The Hard. Katie, Maxine, Sinéad, Maura and Mel each took a section to try out and check the route, take photographs of notable places, statues, plaques etc. and include the what3words positional reference. The task was completed for Seekers Create to help with the production of an App and other virtual information to include in Seekers ‘Seek Your Spark’ programme ready to roll-out to young people from January 2021. The route is indicated by a chain motif set into the surface of the pathway, symbolising partnership between the communities of Portsmouth and Gosport and between past and present. Historically it also refers to the chain which used to be tightened across the harbour entrance at times of potential attack. I think we all learnt a lot from the task and it highlighted a lot of areas that we might never have explored.

A stab in the dark

Sat 9 Jan
Report written by Kat Bruce

Katie and Kat arrived ready for the afternoon shift. Katie realised it was going to be a good shift as within minutes of arriving a seagull pooped on her lovely fluffy hat! So that's good luck, right??!?!? Before they could start they had to have a Covid test, which both came back negative. It was quiet to start which provided a perfect opportunity for a handover of roles. Kat started in the waiting room and Katie manned the entrance. As it got dark torches were provided and hopefully hot drinks kept them warm and the pizza kept them going!

300 people done today. Apparently for every 20 vaccinated 1 life is saved. Both Kat and Katie stayed late to allow others that had been there all day to go home a bit earlier :)
