Monday

Week four fatigue? We had just the tonic as a pack of cheeky monkeys hit the heights at Go Ape in Crawley. There’s nothing like flying through the treetops to get the heart racing (and the legs trembling).

The team braved the heights, scrambled over some tricky obstacles and enjoyed the thrill of the zip wires on the way to a fantastic day. I’ll be a monkey’s uncle if we’re not back for more in the near future.

Tuesday

Enjoy a little dip in the pool?… Yes, we do. How about sitting down for dinner in a lovely restaurant?… Of course. Great, but what about a good old boogie?… Wind me up and point me to the dance floor!

It’s disco day and the Keen2Go troupe were out in force.

First stop was the swimming pool for a couple of lengths and a few fun games. Swimming is such good exercise because it uses every major muscle in the human body – but not the jaw muscles. How were we to possibly exercise those?

Nando’s was on the menu as the swimmers recharged their batteries and looked ahead to the Tuesday Club Disco at the Sutton Civic Centre. And what an evening we had! Baby Shark got the floor shaking – but wouldn’t stand a chance in a swimming race against our aquatic ravers.

Wednesday

The Phoenix Centre was again taken over by the Keen2Go crew who battled the day out on the boards of some of our favourite games.

Frustration, Rummy and our awesome new game Bounce Off were some of the highlights. As was Lilly’s delicious pasta for lunch.

And boy did we need those carbs – it was Keen2Go Cup day after all!

It was the penultimate week of the competition with Team Robbie 4-1 ahead. We needed a heroic performance from Tom’s valiant side to prevent one of the real successes of the Summer Programme from petering out with a wide margin victory.

We got it! Tom’s team battled past the line in the cricket and capitalised on the swing in momentum with a win in football. 4-3 and all to play for going into the final week. Leave those nails alone.    

Friday

Having finally settled the nerves of Monday, it was time for our ever-popular outing to Thorpe Park. Colossus. Nemesis. Saw. They were nothing compared to the ticket machine at Hackbridge Station.

We were lucky with the weather – not least because most of us got absolutely soaked on Tidal Wave. Complaints? Not here. Burger King for lunch and we were back for more.

What’s the opposite of Thorpe Park?

The Ladybirds were that evening back in Sutton enjoying a tranquil pamper evening, creating their own special pizzas and watching the brilliant Pitch Perfect. We’re not sure quite who to be more jealous of.  

Week four: completed it, mate.

Just one week now remained of our Summer Programme, but it was sure to be one of our best. Two trips into London, a spot of filmmaking and the end of summer BBQ – get yourself a plate, it’s bound to be a tasty send-off.
