Wow, Nick has completed a 12 month mission streak. That means they've cleared gardens, moved furniture and changed light bulbs in spring, summer, autumn and even winter. Show your support and give them a massive cheer!
The final final coat of paint went onto the spindles, upstairs doors and skirting today.
Rachel discovered the joy of trying to park in North End and now totally understands why we walk and cycle everywhere!
Nick got to wield a screwdriver as well as a paint brush, returning door handles and fire extinguishers to their rightful places.
We celebrated Wilson's 101 with orange squash and hot water because we know how to party.
By the end of the task it smelt like we'd chosen other methods as we'd used lots of white spirit to clean the paint spots off the stairs.
Another afternoon, 4 more good deeds done!
A final coat of paint on the 2 doors upstairs, the banister and a bit of spindle touching up and we will havr completed the painting job for North End Baptist Church!
Paint splashed clothing is advisable.
The Package Free Larder had some leaflets left over from their launch last year (April 2020, what a time to open!) and thought it would be good to use them to spread the word around town. What better way to do it than by the power of the GoodGym footsteps!
The distribution network went as follows:
Katie L - Old Portsmouth, dockyard, John Pounds Centre, Portsmouth Musuem. Gunwharf businesses weren't too receptive!
Katie C-R - Commercial Rd - shout out to Hideout and Canvas Coffee who took a good batch of leaflets and were well up for promoting other small businesses. I also popped some in to North End library when I was in the area!
Judy - Eastney / Bransbury Park / Milton
Jen - Fratton
Plenty of steps were taken in the distributing of the leaflets, living our motto - do good, get fit!
(I was very naughty when I went to pick them up and I wasn't wearing my GG t-shirt... my excuse is that it was a cold day! - Also I didn't know the cameras would be out!)
