Thankfully the weather was a bit warmer than the icy temperatures of Saturday. With only rain to contend with, we were dressed suitably in our waterproofs to stand out in the elements to cheer on the participants of the Dorothy House Santa run.
Around 100 people wearing Santa suits jogged, walked, skipped and were pushed past our marshal point around the 2.5 km loop course.
We had the steep hill section so most people were holding onto their baggy trousers in a desperate attempt to keep them up!
Thankfully the costumes held it together whilst out on the course but we're not aware of how many made it to the finish line! Felt and water are not a good mix!
A great morning had by all

500 Christmas gifts were hand delivered by generous supporters of the Nest charity.
Each gift was a selection of pressies for a boy or girl of a certain age.
Our mission was to sort the present bags into the right categories ready to be sent out to families in need over Christmas.
With 3 of us at work, the task was completed quickly and we had plenty of time to stop for tea and chat to the various wonderful donators who came to the door.

GoodGym Bath made another trip to St John's court to help put up their Chrimbo deckies.
This has become an annual outing for us over the past few years, and once again we decked out 3 rooms to help brighten the place for the festive period.
In total we erected 3 Christmas trees, loads of dangly thingies, and about a million* lights. Lovely.

This month's visit to Alice Park saw us continuing work on the new path which we'd made a start on last month.
With seven pairs of hands this time, we made fairly quick work of digging out the trench in the line of the path, ready for future bark chipping. And also started off the fencing down on side of that by hammering in stakes at regular intervals.
After a refreshment break, some of us joined in the community session of Christmas wreath making which was also going on today.
Watch this space for more path updates from future sessions...

Today we did our bit to clean up the environment for a future generation.
Specifically, we did some general garden/playground maintenance for one of our local nursery schools.
First we had to clear away some fallen and rotting apples.
Next, we we given some bags of top soil with which we topped up some old tyres to act as borders and/or stepping stones.
Those were the headline tasks, but being GoodGym we ticked them off in record time, so were given various other tasks. Various areas of weeding, tidying away toys, sweeping, Rachel even managed to fit in some carpet laying.
To Rachel for good deed number 50. We'll look out for the black GoodGym shirt in the near future! 👀
