Super Saturday was kicked off by a few partakers in parkruns at Colchester castle park and Highwoods. 10 of us then gathered for a litterpick at 11am in the park. We were given instructions by park ranger Tim to focus on both a top area of the park near the bandstand and another section on the other side of the river. We got to work in two teams and spent an hour picking up various odds and ends, including lots of cigarette butts, cans and even a pair of pink knickers!! We then headed to raise a glass and some chips to GG10 at slug and lettuce. happy 10th GoodGym!!

Thanks all for coming and celebrating and thanks to Liam for taking some pics as well :) Here is to the next 10 years!
