Six Goodgymmers, Cora, Daryl, Sue, James, Keith and Lea, were all raring to have another go at painting the walls of TOSH. Cora had a list of task for us: screwing down loose plasterboards, filling holes and ridges and painting walls and (bits of) ceilings. James stuck to whitening the walls in the main room, Sue was happily whitening walls and ceilings in the ‘facilities’ 🙃, Keith happily filling lots of holes and Daryl was fighting with an old wall, where the paint came off quicker than he could put it on. But Daryl stuck to it and… he won 💪! The entrance hall wall looked welcomingly white at the end. And Lea, judging by the state of her hands, had a run in with white filler and black paint. Even her clothes confirmed this 🙈! The nicely screwed in white plasterboards got a total “revamp”, causing some “oh my”, “really?!”, “that looks awful”, “that’s not grey!” and “Yikes” comments…. But we all agreed that once the whole lot was done, it was actually looking pretty good!!! Nice choice, Cora!

Andy, a potential Goodgymmer, came to see what a Goodgym session is all about, and joined in quite happily. Hope to see you soon again, Andy.

Oh and not only the holes and ridges were filled: our stomachs were as well with all the delicious bites laid out for us during a coffee break.

Thank you everyone for your hard work.
