James and Julia met at the station, the two motivated goodgymmers to get out on Monday evening! We started off with an easy task of weeding the planters and clearing them up from litter - things are not looking too bad as cleaners must be helping. Whilst we were there one bad individual left a ciggie in there! We noticed that cigarette bins have been removed which will not help matters. Ah well! We then topped up the planters with fresh compost to get everything ready for flower planting next time. Surprising the planters are looking really good without too much care and there are still begonia flowers in bloom!

As it was only two of us and no walkers, we went for a very easy jog and talk - running around Fairlop Waters was delightful, only birds around and with our strong bike lights it was easy to see where we were going in the dark. It was great to put a proper run in!

We forgot to take a photo but James remembered on his run back home and took a selfie!
