On what seemed like the wettest evening in living memory, four GoodGymers braved the rain to go for a litter pick on our adopted section of the canal.

We ran down to Livery Street and joined our adopted section of the canal. The canal was a lot cleaner than its been on previous visits we've made, which shows the good work we have been doing alongside the Canal and River Trust to keep on top of this area.

As there wasn't much litter to pick from our adopted section, we carried on picking litter up to the point where we left the bags at Aston Lock, before we ran back to the warm, dry 1000 Trades.

Thanks to everyone for your effort tonight, despite the weather - well done!
