Happy Easter Saturday and a huge congratulations to Dan on his big 100th good deed! It was great to have all of Team Laws present today, as Ellie and Dan split their time between Bath and GoodGym Newcastle so it was fab to be together for the big 100!

A small group gathered in lovely Spring sunshine for a Saturday special with Ouseburn Trust, the fabulous group who look after the network of paths near our start point at Stepney Bank Stables. Litter picking was the order of the day and the time flew over as we chatted, caught up and picked up all manner of random rubbish. By the end our collection included a bike seat, a suitcase (always dubious in a wooded area), loads of bottles, a spoon and a wheel.

Check out the photos to see the vast area we covered along with regular Ouseburn Trust volunteers out making good use of the bank holiday weekend.

Well done everyone and congrats on the wings, Dan!
