Goodgym Brent met in Willesden with a big hello and welcome to first timer Christine
After a catch up and warm up, we jogged 2 km to Clitterhouse farm . Anika greeted us on arrival and rushed to show us the tasks for the evening , as the light was slowly disappearing . We shared out the tasks between us. Christine expertly painted a small table black . Lizzie filled a wheelbarrow and buckets with woodchip. Pete and Tabitha then spread the sweet smelling wood chip on the flower beds , to cover any weeds and prevent them growing .
In no time at all the light was gone , the jobs were done , and we raced back to Willesden
Great job Team Brent !

We had been promised a bit Mor-a painting at Mora School , but it was all finished before our visit. The school were still grateful for our help as they have a huge playground that needed sweeping so after our hellos and warm ups we jogged to Mora School .
On arrival we had a few minutes to spare while waiting for the brushes, so we played a fast paced game of British Bulldog , taking some of us back to our primary school days . We then got started on the task of sweeping the playground to ensure the children can play safely in a clean playground , free of litter and leaves .
Once the playground was swept, we re grouped for some fitness exercises . Pete led the group with some jogs at increasing speeds across the playground. Following this, we took it in turns to master our football skills weaving a ball in and out of cones. As the night started to fall we ended with a wall sit challenge , congratulations to the champions Xenia and Pete !
We then jogged back to Willesden for a well deserved cold drink. Well done everyone , Bra vo !

Big numbers for a big task tonight. We welcomed lots of new faces, including Xenia and Katy. It was a lovely late summer evening, and we jogged through Gladstone park to arrive at Mora Primary School. There we waited patiently for them to notice the shouting, waving and phone calls and they UnLocked the door and welcomed us in.
Then we all got into one room and rolled the paint on
We rolled down the floor cloths, put our painting gloves on and rolled the paint smoothly down the walls, using the finer brushes to create that final polishing touch. Everyone who could see colours painted, everyone else... scraped the old paint off. sensible job allocations, team!
As the sweat dripped down our brows, down this paint crawled, down this paint crawled.
With only two rollers and some very small brushes we managed to finish one of the rooms, ready for a second coat on our return next week. We packed up, washed up , brushed the floor and jogged back to Willesden
Thank you everyone for joining! Hope to see you again soon

On a sunny Monday evening we welcomed two newcomers to Goodgym Brent , a big hello to Catherine and Chris !
Todays task was a litter pick of Willesden on the way to our summer social picnic .
Tabitha, Chris and Catherine took the left side of the road , and Amy and Chris the right . There was plenty of litter to pick and we added a fitness twist by squatting while picking. Lee soon joined and we had bags full of litter by the time we reached Gladstone park.
At the park we met Samina , Maria and Karen who had helped with a pick of the park .
We stayed in the park for a social picnic, where we shared popcorn, biscuits , fruit and crisps ... and an onion
Thanks Everyone !
