This we we decided that it was totally possible to socially distance, adhere to COVID-19 guidelines and still do some good during our daily exercise.

GoodGymers all over Oxford tooled up with litter pickers, gloves, and bin bags to get their exercise and clear up some litter at the same time.

We cleared up the city from Port Meadow to Rose Hill, and also further afield in Oxfordshire (Marcham and Hook Norton). Most discovered that there was less litter than we might normally expect - an unexpected positive side-effect of people being advised to #stayathome!

Special mention to our two mini-ploggers for their clean up efforts: Give them the volunteering bug young!
