Litter did we know it would be so cold!

Newcastle was covered with a blanket of snow on Monday morning, which had turned to ice in places, but thankfully the Quayside had thawed enough to make this litter pick possible, if a little difficult due to some of the litter being frozen to the ground!

Five intrepid GoodGymers did their best to make the Quayside a better place, running just over a mile to get there from Stepney Bank Stables after the quickest of quick warm ups.

Many thanks to Michelle for joining us from GoodGym Sheffield, hopefully you can come back again soon when it is a bit warmer. 10/10 for effort in removing the frozen litter from the ground! Good luck to Anastasia on her marathon adventures in Edinburgh and Paris, to Beth on her upcoming first Great North Run and to Aimee on her mission to run all the parkruns in the world!
