We had a nice turn up for the last official group session of the year, despite the drizzly and dark night!


We all congregated at the Wanstead House, welcoming Sibel to her first session - Well done Sibel and great to have you on board!

Whilst we waited for everyone, we made sure that we had all the gloves and litter picks out and ready and then finally we made our way out.

The nice thing about relaxing litter picking sessions is that it gives folks a chance to catch-up and put the world to right. As usual we covered all kind of array of topics from silly to serious to outrageous! but what happens at the session, stays at the session;)


We did a nice loop around the hood and collected three full bags! We made our way back to Wanstead house, taking a nice group photo with the bin right in the middle - no expense spared here!

A lovely way to wrap up the year but of course we have some parkrun volunteering and foodbank sessions coming up to keep us all engaged in December!
