Thanks to Thomas and Isaac for the prize find of a boot (& some earrings), enabling me to think of a decent report pun!

As always, we were warmly welcomed by Jane at BPA who gave me the dates for 2023 as well... I love the organisation!

We are definitely finding less litter every time we go along which is a great sign. We did fill a few bags with the usual suspects of sweet (or candy for our US friends) wrappers and crisp packets, a few plastic bottles and cans. Today we found 3 dog balls and Aoife located the party corner where she picked up lots of glass.

After an hour or so it was time to head off in our different directions and enjoy a bit more of the morning sunshine.

Happy Saturday everyone!
