Clearing a broad field
9 runners ran to help the SUSTRANS and SUSTRANS in Sheffield.
- Thursday, 17th of September 2020
- Led by Rachel Ripley
8 of us joined together (in a socially distanced fashion,of course) to clear one of Sheffield's persistent grot spots, Broadfield Park and Road. We were roundly ignored by the kids in the playground, but got a few thank yous from cyclists as we headed back along the SUSTRANS path (a familiar location from a previous group run).
Shout out to James and Eugene on their perseverance in trying to clear even the most inaccessible litter. 8 bin liners and a shopping trolley cleared in an hour. Fantastic result. Thanks to last minute sign up Eugene too for remembering to capture some photos along the way.
This was all part of the the Great British September Clean https://www.keepbritaintidy.org/get-involved/support-our-campaigns/great-british-spring-clean For those that couldn't make it in person, if you do a pick between now and the 27th, whatsapp me a photo of your haul and I'll add you to the register
