We had a last minute change of task today as our scheduled task owner had to sadly postpone for another date due to illness.

Our fall back whenever this happens is to do a litter pick, which soon will become challenging to do in the dark evenings however for today… it was the ‘right thing to do!’

Lights, camera, action

We started by doing the usual task brief followed by a few warm up games then a jog around the park from 4km post to 5km post.

This is where the action started! With agility and speed work ably captured on camera by myself! And just as the light started to fade we ran back to the 4km post to start our task.


Who says litter picking can’t be fun!

Pinching an idea from GoodGym Ealing we decided to see which team could cross off the most amount of items on the GoodGym litter pick card!

We had Team Doctor’s orders and Team Get up and run

I joined Team Doctor’s orders and I can tell you that there was a ‘duck and dive’ as they tried to find the winning items! Amazing what you can find when you ‘hit the floor’ and delve deep into the bushes… no ‘droopy drawers’ but plenty of booze!

Just the poo missing of this list (plus a newspaper, a coin and food peelings)… but we did find a toy car as our special item and a plank of MDF as put too big to bag item.?

Team Get up and run found the poo but we’re missing quite a few other items despite having ‘Queen Bee’ Jean in the team, they felt they had it harder as their area was just too clean! … ‘up to tricks’ me thinks but they did have a good ‘pick and mix’

And the winning tean was….Team Doctor’s order! Though we agreed we are all winners
