A beautiful warm October day - just perfect for joining The Final Straw Solent for a beach clean at the far end of Eastney.

We collected plenty of washed-up plastic, fishing line, cable and pieces of wire, and I managed to add a patch of green to my white jeans!

After adding our pickings to The Final Straw bags for them to sort, weigh and categorise, Maura continued her exercise by cycling home, while Ellie and I had a swim and Val did doggy-care.

I am already a member of GoodGym Portsmouth but have moved out of the city and would like to see the development of GoodGym in Chichester. There is so much potential for missions and tasks in the wider Chichester area. I love combining running, helping my local community, protecting the environment and having fun with others doing the same.
