7 runners cleared 2.5 bags of litter from the Chelmsford streets

We got ready for our session by watching people carry furniture down from a flat, followed litter pick dance/warm up led by David.

We headed to our planned location of Kings Road and started quite quickly after spotting some litter glistening in the leaves. As usual, most of the litter was food and drink packaging, accompanied by possibly the largest mushrooms in Chelmsford, spotted by Joe.

After getting to about halfway down Kings Road, two bags were so full we had to stop and dispose of them. We jogged to Admirals Park to clear any remaining firework debris from the weekend, however it was mostly very clean and we only had a small bag of litter by the time we got to Central Park.

We reminisced about our pub crawl in September, and discussed a couple of future pub crawl plans.

See you all soon,
