We had a really lovely evening on the Quayside, picking up lots of litter. It didn't rain as forecast which was great!

It was brilliant to be joined by Carol Anne, Liz (first ever GoodGym good deed!!) , Eleanor and Louise.

We managed to pick up 5 bags full of litter. We had a great meander along Skinnerburn Road (where we found lots of bottles, cans and McDonalds packaging) and then headed back along the Cycle path.

This evening was really enjoyable, lots of laughing, chatting and switching off from everything else.

Highlights of what we found tonight included a random plastic pink pig (see the photo) and an empty Gin bottle.

(Go and give Liz a cheer/welcome!)
