A team of intrepid GoodGymers braved the mud and rain this evening to tackle some of the shoreline litter around Hilsea Lines.

Queen of the Litter Pick, Judy, led us through Anchorage Park to Foxes Forest, where we struck litter-pick gold. If only old beer cans were as valuable as the real stuff! Dave finally got to wear the 200 Deeds cape. He reached this feat back in January, but despite living with the AA he still hadn't managed to don it until now!

Resident Mountain Goat Jen tackled the top of the underpass, launching bottles and cans to a ready team of catchers below to sort out. Katie was the first to find a pair of pants for Litter Pick Bingo, and two more pairs were quickly discovered.

Lucy used epic tracking skills to find us in the dark, whilst semaphore reunited the rest of the team after accidentally becoming separated on the trip back to base.

Well done everyone on a great litter haul, and for not slipping over in the mud or falling in the moat!
