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!

Great to be able to wish Paul, Natasha and Mirandaa belated Happy New Year and check in with Bruce and Imogen as to their weekly mileage.

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.......
