It was a nice evening to meet up and do some GoodGym socialising! We all met outside the station and James was there a few mins before and already started picking out cigarette butts and some litter out of the planters. We noticed that the flowers were beautiful though some were missing! It's always expected with public planters and it doesn't happen as often thankfully!

Julia was in charge of filling up the watering cans whilst Ele and James did a fantastic job filling up the planters that are under the bridge that don't get the benefit of all the rain that we've been having! Though James was very keen to water the wet planters, even if it started to rain again;)

Once we watered and tidied up, equipped with good cycling lights, we went for a Jog & Walk to Fairlop Waters. It's just sooooooooooooooo lovely to run in the park as a group in the dark. There were just a couple of peeps and some fisherman tents so it was nice and quiet and felt safe running as a group. The lake looked super lovely. We jogged and walked at a very relaxed pace and saw some early Halloween decorations on the way round the lake! Spooooooky!

Talking of spooky - next week we will be in Wantstead for Halloween litter picking so come and join and BRING YOUR SCARIEST WEAR! WHOAAAAHAHAHAHHA! We will also grab a few social drinks afterwards for those who fancy it!
