With COVID restrictions still in place, just 5 GoodGymers met to clear up a local litter hot spot: Port Meadow.

Despite the small group, for many of us this was the largest number of people we had been with since the start of lockdown.

Sadly, it would appear not everyone had been as cautious as us over the last few weeks, as there was plenty of evidence of socialising left along the riverside at Port Meadow - from beer bottles and cider cans, to crisp packets, socks, and the ubiquitous pair of pants.

An hour of litter picking left us with 5 full bags of litter, a few nettle stings, and the familiar happy glow of a Good Deed completed in excellent company.

Thanks to Bethan for the flapjacks.
