So... plogging activities were carried out by GG only on this particular evening. Scott's son had a footy match and Gill is otherwise engaged at the moment so there was noone from outside of GG joining us. Nay mind, we're more than capable litter pickers!

Armed with plog sticks and an array of plastic bags we pointed ourselves southward and hit the streets. The 'Keep Barnsley Tidy' group had informed us of some specific roads warranting our attention. We made our way up these roads collecting sackfuls of litter from inbetween the parked cars (litter gathering trash magnets). Some residents even came out of their houses to thank us, as usual they were quickly informed about GoodGym and what we're all about.

After clearing Dodworth Rd, Derby St,Shaw Ln and South St we made our way to the fitness apparatus in Penny Pie Park. Here activities included pull-downs, leg presses, shoulder presses and hill climbers; 20 slow repetitions of each.

After picking Poggy Park we proceeded to place our rubbish in nearby waste receptacles (otherwise known as bins) and then headed back to base to stretch off.

We've got a special session next week; it's the launch event for GoodGym's new partner- Raleigh!
