Tonight we found a dinosaur on our GoodGym job. I'm posting a picture of said dinosaur as that was probably the least scary fly-tipped item we removed from the park on the Rawthorpe estate tonight.

Broken garden furniture, kids toys, an oven, numerous plant pots and copious litter were all included in the monstrous amount of rubbish we shifted in about an hour.

I always feel better for having done one of these jobs as the park looks much better so I know our efforts have made a difference. But at the same time I feel sad that people ate so irresponsible and inconsiderate to literally sling their unwanted items over their garden fence onto the park/playing field area beyond.

Thanks to Sharon from Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing and local resident Simba who joined us for the job, and of course GoodGymmers Kati Lawand Ben Godfrey for their stirling efforts as ever.
