We had a last minute cancellation of task today but we never gift up as we soon had one lined up with Clare from Stoke Park Trust helping to wrap up presents for their grotto, tinsel up some tea lights, sort through Christmas lights and a bit of light hovering
We met at the task location at 6:30pm and those wishing to get out for a run went off for a 10 minute out and back run with Ruth back marking and me leading.
Whilst those who wanted to just do the task met us at the task location at 7pm
Clare gave us the low down on what she wanted us to do… there was no time like the present to crack on.
Pam, Keith, Devajani, Maya, Kam and Jean spent some qualitree time wrapping up the empty boxes
Ruth was doing her best not to get her tinsel in a tangle and get it nicely wrapped around the tea lights
Whilst I was doing my best impersonation of Freddie and the famous hoovering scene …
The task was nicely wrapped up in 45 minutes.
Thank you Clare for the last minute task - much appreciated

We had a host of activities going on tonight. With walkers, runners and those driving direct to the task all by 6:15 so we could safely get the allotment plot turned over whilst we still had light.
Jen was our first walker with a sustainable travel plan of walking, trains and walking again.
Next we had an influx of runner vs cars! with the much awaited arrival of Ricky for his 95th task! (not sure why I thought it was your 99th) Good to see you!
Just Gimme the Light
The plot we were clearing needed digging over, shearing of the sides, re positioning the blue tarpauling and sweeping the sides to make it all look tidy. We actually managed to get it all done before the day light faded but with the extra light from our lights. Great effort from everyone.
Sarah had kindly offered us some potatoes which the Home Start team had recently dug up. We were boiled over to get them.
Fitness Fun Mash up
As we had a mixed method of arrivals today I thought the team might like a mini PT session using dumbells, kettlebells and med balls!
With deadlifts, woodchops, halos, bent over rows and a killer lunge set! All steamed up! I think the team saute enjoyed it?
We have now finished our monthly sessions at this allotment until next year.
Next week we have an indoor task at St Mary's Church on Church St. Back to normal meet up time of 6:30pm at Upton Court Park.

Slough Report written by Slough runner
We certainly delivered tonight with 7 goodgymers at Parvaaz.
Met at Salt Hill with a few meeting at the task location, our task was sweeping up the leaves in the garden and car park area. Eva got straight to work sweeping us off our feet with her wonderful trips to Portugal. Eva the garden looks amazing.
Kam and Pam covered the alley way entrance weeding and clearing up the leaves, Agnieska helped to sweep one side of the car park whilst Mehdi and Hamid covered the other side.
Total of 12 bags WOW.
Eva kindly brought some treats for us all too.
Next week session we are back at St Mary's for more painting. https://www.goodgym.org/v3/sessions/fence-painting-03904176-9b0b-4e31-9a2f-3ce8a9cf68bd
We look forward to seeing you all at our next task.

We descended on the allotments tonight knowing that the daylight hours were fading fast and that we would have to be a bit speedy on tonight's task.
With a team of 9 helpers even an overgrown plot was no battle for us! With tools in hand, we got to work - we were all beetrooting for each other! The weeds were very high again, but given the recent wet, dry, sunny, wet weather it's no wonder...we could all loose the plot when faced with these conditions.
Hamid worked very hard tonight and beavered away at all the spickey roots, Mehdi took charge of the wheelbarrow duties, whilst Kam, Jean, Sandy, Devajani, Maya and Pam worked on their little patches until all the weeds had been removed.
By 7.30pm it was getting too dark to do much more, although the plot looked miles better than it did at the beginning.
Great job all round!
Next week we are meeting at Salt Hill Activity Centre for 6.30pm and making our way to Northampton Ave to help Parvaaz Project with their garden space.

Goodgym Slough were in Maidenhead last night supporting a 24 hour epic step (hit step) for Thames Hospice
The team went down to support & encourage steppers to step in time & keep the core group going !
It was great to see a community coming together with food, refreshments & a bbq in what ended up a warm summer night in September!
Stepping against a backdrop of flood & candle (battery powered) lights & funky music was great.
Well done to all that came down to
