The litter pick successfully returned to Ipswich on Monday night following it's pandemic enforced absence. Although numbers were smaller than recent missions, the attendees may have anticipated a tougher evening.

To our surprise the Riverside Walk was cleaner than expected and we may have had a recent Ipswich Wombles visit taking away the worst of the litter.

Needless to say we still managed to find enough litter and rubbish hidden away in the undergrowth and river banks to make our evening worthwhile.

And congratulation to Nicola Stevenson for winning the 'find a sock' competition (we made that up - it wasn't really a competition).
