Lots of us had a good start to our saturdays doing some plogging in the spring sunshine.

There was plenty rubbish to be found, including ice cream wrappers and vodka on Bournemouth beach (people obviously living life more fully down south) and lots of bottle caps in Charlton...but no bottles?!

Clear up at River Gardens, riverside, & Thames beach...got carried away & did about 4 hours and met interested passerbys asking about Goodgym/volunteering. Found a cone!

Jacqui and Sally litter picked in Brixton, where there was sadly lots of rubbish - cans, bottles, food packaging and face masks.

Thank you everyone for making your places that much nicer!
