With Southsea Castle, Spitbank Fort and the Solent as our grand backdrop, we made the most of the last week of light evenings to litter-pick the grass area around the bandstand.

Catherine, Katie, Lynn, Rosie, Jo and I just about managed to keep the litter in our bags as we battled with the gusty wind.

We found remnants of celebrations, with streamers and silver confetti; windblown take-away wrappers; countless cigarette ends and beer caps.

Rosie started Halloween early with a creepy spider ring, but Jo hit the litter-pick jackpot by finding bags of smelly fish guts, presumably left by sea-anglers.

6 people + 60 minutes = a litter-free grand bandstand + feelgood friendly fun!

I am already a member of GoodGym Portsmouth but have moved out of the city and would like to see the development of GoodGym in Chichester. There is so much potential for missions and tasks in the wider Chichester area. I love combining running, helping my local community, protecting the environment and having fun with others doing the same.
