TEN fantastic fellows joined me to run over 8km on a cold November night to vist the Brent Feeder and help out our old friends at the Canal & River Trust

We were joined tonight by James who was at his first GoodGym run. We welcomed him and did a quick run through of the new... it's all about Christmas parties!

  • GG wide Christmas party - details here
  • Brent Christmas social (at the Queensbury) after the run on 16th December - fill in details and send money to Tabitha by Friday this week. Spreadsheet here

With the news done whilst jogging on the spot we threw in a quick warm-up and then we were on our way. We kept a good pace mainly to keep warm as we wound the 4km to Stonebridge! We there met Emilie who told us a bit about CRT and told us about the task in hand - a litter pick of the canal.

Everyone donned high-viz, gloves and armed themselves with various tools from grappling hooks to litter-pickers of varying sizes! The new hawk lights from GG Central (thank you!) got their first outing and were much needed. We work hard for 20 minutes and fished out a load of un-opened shopping, many many tins, cans and bottles AND...

  • TWO supermarket trollies and
  • a full suitcase

Quite the haul. Once that was all taken in and loaded up into the van, we all anti-bac'd our hands and then said our goodbyes to Emilie before another quick run back to base! After that long run, despite the cold it was important to stretch out and then we headed home/for a drink!

A fun night and a really wortwhile task.

Thanks all,
