Today we were very pleased to help out at Toes in the Water. This was a community event organised by local river swimmers to raise money for Friends of Itchen Estuary who help to take care of the local river. The event helped to raise attention to the pollution problems facing our seas and rivers while raising much needed funds to protect them. We helped to get the boat club ready with decorations and assisted stall holders (who were donating their profits) to get set up. Some GoodGymers also got crafty making signs to raise away of the sewage problems in the river. We were hopefully to enjoy a swim but unfortunately it was not safe to do so due to recent sewage discharges. We made sure make up for this by filling up on tea and cake before dancing the day away to Southampton Ukulele Jam. That certainly helped hit our fitness goals for the day before helping to clear up!

Today I learnt another new word.
One clue, zoo. 9 letters… MENAGERIE. Mrs M is teaching me the English language every week 😂
Mrs M and I had a good catch up and completed two crosswords together. A great afternoon.

Abby and I helped E to sort and clear a corner of her living room.
We helped E to make decisions between 'bin', 'recycle', 'keep' or 'donate to MAKE'.
E was really pleased with the end result of 2 black sacks into the wheelie bin, plenty of paper into the recycling bin and a bag of items to take to MAKE. And we left a corner of the room with clean carpet and neatly stacked possessions.

Back to city farm this evening to start our assault on building the much talked goat mountain 🐐 When we arrived we saw a fresh batch of woodchip in the carpark and were wondering whether Tom had visions of this being shifted again instead. However we were all very swiftly put to work, digging up and leveling an area of ground the farm are going to build a classroom on and taking the wheelbarrows full of mud to cover the 'mountain' which was a very large raised area of twigs that needed covering.
It became very apparent why Tom wants this split over multiple sessions as the area is so large. Abby did a particularly good job commandeering the largest and greenest of the wheelbarrows (now known forever more affectionately as Big Baz).
We all agreed this was a definite workout and were pleasantly surprised to see the mountain start to take shape near the end of the session.
We look forward to returning in two weeks time to hopefully help conquer more of goat mountain 🏔️
