It's great to combine doing good in the community whilst exercising, and having a lot of fun with like minded people. You don't have to be a fast runner to join, you can be a slow runner, a jogger or even a walker, as I am.

A beautiful warm October day - just perfect for joining The Final Straw Solent for a beach clean at the far end of Eastney.
We collected plenty of washed-up plastic, fishing line, cable and pieces of wire, and I managed to add a patch of green to my white jeans!
After adding our pickings to The Final Straw bags for them to sort, weigh and categorise, Maura continued her exercise by cycling home, while Ellie and I had a swim and Val did doggy-care.
Our return trip to Pompey in the Community was a super speedy one - 6 GoodGymmers managed to get a second coat of paint on the benches in just half the time the first cost took.
Maura cast her always discerning eye over our efforts - if it doesn't pass Maura's Quality Control its not good enough!
Luckily the rain stayed away long enough for us to complete our task!
Unfortunately I can't credit our Junior Photographer Alice on the register, but she managed to take impressive 120 photos in just five minutes! I have filtered through then for the report 🙈
Following on from our first session, Pompey in the Community have asked for our help putting a top coat of paint on their picnic benches.
This evening we joined Clare from Pompey in the Community to help paint the benches outside their building.
We paired up to tackle the benches, with Judy and Catherine being the speediest painters! As the sun was going down we managed to get a fourth bench painted with a five person assault in just under twenty minutes.
