Celine, Michelle and I met to run up the hill together pre-mission and collect a few Beat the Street points en route. As the segment says it "sure is Heeley"

We meet lovely Iren and 5 other Goodgymmers at Gleadless Medical Centre, to pick along a stretch of road which often gets missed as it's right on the edge of where Gleadless and Heeley litter pickers pick. Welcome in particular to Catherine who was joining us for her first good deed.

1 hour, 14 black bags, a tyre, umbrella and several pieces of wood later, the area looked a lot nicer. We posed with our haul and headed off most of us back down the hill towards home. Some of us collected a few more Beat boxes and admired the newly painted horse at Heeley People's Park
