So tonight should have been our first task helping a local church in Britwell. We were raring to go having met up in Kennedy Park but sadly the task owner was not around to let us in. We hope all is well with him and will check up on him in the morning.

Grab an opportunity

Most people have maybe a jerry can in their boot or shopping bags, mine has a Royal Mail sack full of litter pickers on the off chance that a task falls through just like tonight.

So with our backup plan in place, we decided to crack on with the fitness.

Core blimey my legs burn

After a 'follow the leader' and 'category' games for warm up we did some leg strengthening work and a trio core set!

And because that wasn't enough 4 rounds of hill reps were the order of the day before the real fun began.

Shall we go for a drink?

Never surprises us that beer cans are the order of the day in every park we litter pick!

There is something theraputic about litter picking

Said Eva, on her first litter pick task with us.

We actually had a lovely time chatting and clearing rubbish in a new end of town.

Thank you to everyone who came along today.

Next week we are back at the allotment on Stoke Rd on Monday, meeting up on Shaggy Calf Lane and walking /running down to the task.
