Kanika, Juli, Tessa, Roberta, Sheila, Mark, Yesim, Gillian, Rachel, Jack and I were greeted by beautiful Winter sunshine as we assembled for our litter pick at Kidwells Park.

Meanwhile the same sun shone on Sol, Georgeta, Diya, Amanda and Matthew as they ventured out to tackle litter in their own areas.

At Kidwells we found the usual mix of plastic, cans, bottle and cigarette butts, plus odd items of clothing, part of a shopping trolley and bags of frozen dog poo. Lots of the drinks containers were heavy with ice.

Sol found the same on her hour long walk. She picked up 6 buckets full of litter!

In Cox Green Georgeta reported finding lots of plastic, paper and leftovers from a car accident. She also found an 'L' plate, but as the the proud owner of a new litter picker, she's not a learner anymore! Maybe 'L' for Legend?

Matthew sent a n-ice pic of his shadow from his sweep of Ockwells Road, where he found 'so much rubbish'!

Diya combined her litter pick with a walk to visit an elderly friend.

While lots of us litter picked in Maidenhead, Amanda represented down the road in Windsor. Great stuff!
