Chillin and Fillin with litter pickers on East Finchley High Street
8 GoodGymers made their way 3.0km to help the Martin Primary in Barnet.

On a bitterly cold night at the Phoenix Cinema, our GoodGym team gathered with unwavering commitment. The plan to spread woodchip at Martin Primary School's faced a hiccup—the supplies were nowhere in sight. Undeterred, we embraced Plan B with the same enthusiasm.
Wearing layers upon layers to fend off the biting cold, our resilient crew took to the High Street for a plogging raid. Armed with bags and pickers, we transformed into a team on a mission. Chatting echoed through the chilly air as we scoured the streets, filling five big bags with the remnants of urban life.
In the midst of our litter-picking quest, we stumbled upon a noteworthy find—a wheel hub lying in a Cycle Lane. A small victory, yet a symbol of the impact we were making in creating a cleaner and safer environment for everyone.
As our successful mission concluded, we retreated to the warmth of the Phoenix Cinema. Inside, we carried out our traditional warm-down and stretches, fostering not only a cleaner community but also strengthening the social bonds that define our GoodGym adventures.
Big shout out to John who had to walk.
