We showed Good Gym Ipswich can go with the flow tonight as we arrived prepped to plan social media. But our Task Owner needed a little more hands on help tonight and we were happy to oblige. A quieter night for the gang as Natasha got stuck in creating some info stands whilst I painted a door. We reunited upstairs to clean some windows before we left.
The run went quickly tonight on a crisp but dry evening and we clocked up 5k with Natasha doubling the effort.

The hill that leads up to Blue Hill certainly makes itself known, especially if it hasn't been tackled in a while. One for the quads...
Tracey soon set us work on 'the cabin' situated in the grounds. Due to be repainted soon, we ensured it was prepped and ready by giving it a thorough clean.
Couldn't resist the family- photo with the giant teddy bear before we departed.... can we insist on seeing something truly fluffy next time?
Thanks for the pun Pippa... one of my faves to date.

Such is the efficiency of the Good Gym Ipswich team that we double-tasked tonight!
After our run tonight we headed to the Salvation Army where Beverley had lined up two tasks: not a problem we said with the swagger of a gang who know how to get stuck in.
First up was tackling the donation room and getting the clothes sorted. All separated and folded by item so that they are easy to access and try on. Five suitcases done and tidied.
Task two alerted all our sweet tooths as we divided sweets and wrapped them ahead of Valentines Day for gifts for the residents. It seems Quality Sweets are for life and not just for Christmas.

Was this a dream task? I'm raising my hand and saying a big 'yes'! And judging by the turn out and smiles as we left, I think many of the Good Gymers agreed.
Firstly, a huge welcome to new Good Gymers Pippa and partner David! They looked so at home at art hub Rock Paper Scissors we thought they were part of the creative team!
We were made to feel right at home by Lulu and Jess as we entered their amazing space. Heaters on and a super cosy atmosphere, chai tea (a personal fave) and offer of an oaty biscuit. Thank you!
Tasks included putting up artwork of all shapes and sizes and sorting their materials. A few shouts of 'up a bit on the left' and 'down a bit on the right' and the wall was transformed by beautiful work created by children and young people. Luckily I left my spirit level at home or this could have taken a tad longer .....
The task definitely stirred some creative spirit and I wouldn't be surprised if there are few adults trying to join the sessions. Collaging group, anyone?
Loved seeing everyone and well done for braving the cold. The run was 'brisk' to say the least. What a (he)artfelt task.......
