With litter-pickers and poles GoodGym and Exe Nordic Walkers cleared King George V Playing Fields of litter this stunning morning.

Once again we were blessed with gorgeous sunny weather and it was absolutely brilliant to once again meet up with Exe Nordic Walkers for a joint litter-pick. Fantastic to have Teresa and Jan joining us for their first GoodGym good deed. We hope you enjoyed it and that we get to see you soon again for more doing good!

The playing fields looked pretty clean to begin with, but as we walked around we found more and more litter hidden in high grass, under trees, around the picnic tables and sadly also in the playparks.

In 40 minutes we all filled a bin liner each! Jo even came back with a full bin liner AND two broken umbrellas.

What a difference we made!

Great work everyone! I look forward to seeing you all for our next joint litter-pick. Take a look here at what else we have going on in our area!
