A suitably cold night for a December festive run round College Park looking at the Christmas lights, followed by a litter pick.

Tonight we learnt that

  • Laura has completed 50 good deeds (this was also news to her!)
  • Maxine's festive leggings were, in fact, pyjamas
  • There may be a competitive or collaborative element to decorating houses on main roads
  • Lighting up the bush in your front garden might sound like a euphemism but it looks festive
  • Dog poo is almost invisible in the dark
  • Barbie came to a sad end which may or may not be related to the burner phone we found in another bush
  • there is always clothing to be found (a glove and a school tie tonight)
  • even in the dark you can collect lots of rubbish
  • Geese are excellent guard animals
  • Kat's camera is significantly better than mine at low light photography.

Just your average GoodGym good deed Wednesday!

One more group run before the Christmas break but plenty of community missions! Take a look and come along.
