We met for our regular end of month litter pick at Great Salterns this morning. We were minus Katie due to an 'eventful' dog walk yesterday where a tree won ☹️. Speedy recovery soon Katie. Jo met up with Sinéad and Laura who had run parkrun beforehand, whilst Aoife was bar code scanning and Tony was tail walking. Val, Judy and Tess soon arrived and we grabbed our pickers and bags and headed towards the bushes near the golf course. Usually a lot of litter accumulates here due to the wind but we found it quite clean. We headed around the perimeter and picked what we found which wasn't as bad as it usually is although we still found bags of dog poo which were left on benches. Its obviously getting colder as we didn't find any items of clothing but collected plenty of recycling and rubbish.
