Area Activator for GoodGym Portsmouth. I love running, living near the seaside and getting out into the great outdoors! I also like cake!

Today Rosie and I went on the Seekers Create virtual walkshop around Hilsea Lines. We were encouraged to use our senses & describe what we could see, hear, taste, smell and feel in each of the 6 zones. We then had to feed this back via the online forms to provide information to the consultation about the area.
We had a lovely walk in the sunshine and used all our senses. Phoenix enjoyed himself too!
If you'd like to get involved, you can go along to an in person walkshop or take part in the virtual consultation. More info here: seekerscreate.com/hilsea-lines.html

Tonight we had a hill to climb.... just our old friend Portsdown Hill, to get to St M's for our good deed.
We met the new vicar, Hugo, and then set to work. 6 of us were on shed duty, emptying and refilling the shed in a tidy and ordered manner.
The remaining 4 were on picking duties, removing the litter that had blown / been thrown around the church grounds, including a Christmas Greggs bag and the usual bits of plastic and a few cans.
Once we'd got round the back of the church (still nicely cleared of ivy from our previous visits) the shed workers joined us to see how many GoodGymers you can fit in an alleyway and whether it's possible to photograph them all in one take!
Our work was done pretty quickly so we headed back down the hill with a spring in our step.
A Goldilocks task.... not too long, not to short, just right. Just like all our GoodGymers eh?!

The knitting needles and crotchet hooks were out - Portsmouth GoodGymers took tuition and re-learned forgotten skills, or rattled off squares with ease (in front of the tv, on the train, while working...)
The result was a beautifully colourful range of squares, ready to be sewn into a warm blanket, to be sent with a convoy of supplies to Ukraine next month.
