We were starting to get a bit concerned about whether anyone would be able to make it after a few cancellations throughout the day, but thankfully six runners made it to pick litter with head torches and gloves at the ready.

Fay came to say hi to our new runners, Helen and Nathan, and we were slightly mesmerised by their shiny shiny running jackets.

It was so cold that I encouraged everyone to do a warm up, which went down with a lot less complaints than usual!

We jogged down to the river and whilst filling up two large bags, we learnt that you can only make thanksgiving recipes that serve a minimum of five people, even if only two are eating, and that Martin must have made some very sturdy toilet roll angels when he was a child for them to still be on his parents tree every year.

The fumes from the cans of lager we collected nearly got the better of David, with him trying to start an argument with any deniers of yorkshire puddings on a christmas dinner. Joel almost fell into the trap, but couldn't go against his beliefs.

Great effort everyone, see you all soon!
