This evening we welcomed Alondra to her first ever GoodGym session! It was lovely to meet you, and hope to see you at another task soon.

We had possibly the shortest run we've had on a Wednesday evening for a while as we were visiting St Mary's Church, just the other side of the alley from Fratton Community Centre. We mixed it up a bit by zig-zagging across the church yard and throwing in some side-steps, high knees and a sprint finish to the church doors.

We started off with the challenge of matching the correct panels of four separate gazebos from a massive bundle, then folding and stashing them away. Some military precision was needed to get all of the elements in their bags, but we achieved it with style!

We then got some proper GoodGym weight-work in, with myself, Sam and Katie up on the vestry roof, receiving tables passed up a ladder by the rest of the team.

We even found another task whilst up on the roof, sorting through all of the church's panto gear ready for Christmas. Rosie from St Mary's has offered an exclusive trip up the Bell Tower in return for our help with this, so keep your eyes peeled for the task listing!
