This evening I was joined by 9 Good Gym runners to help clean the streets of Willesden clean.

We started with the news. There will be a Brent social on Wed 12th February when we will eat dinner and play the quiz at the Queensbury. Oxford has won the bid for the GG Games 2020. Watch this space for further info. Also, big welcome to Velvet who joined for her very first GG session.

After a quick warm-up, we ran around the corner to meet Elayne, who provided us with all of the equipment needed for the task ahead. We split into two teams, one on each side of the road. Starting at the station, we made our way to the Library gathering litter along the way. We collected four bags of litter between us.

On the return to base, Tabitha led a walking group, while Liz led a running group, returning the litter pickers and then taking a slightly longer route back to base. The groups were reunited in the pub for a well earned beverage!
