10 GoodGymers, and our honourary GoodGymer Penny, took on our semi-regular task of clearing up the litter in Magdalen Wood. Magdalen Wood is a lovely patch with a terrible litter problem. We are always sad to see how much rubbish is thrown down in the woods between our visits. This time, with the brambles and nettles dying back, we were able to get at a lot of the problem spots more easily and clear litter that may have been sat under a tangle of vegetation for a while.

We filled sacks and sacks with cans and bottles, picked up several Unidentified Metal Objects, a bike frame, pieces of carpet, glasses cases, and most sadly of all a full sack of needles.

We're happy we left the woods in a better state than we found them, but it's sad that this is such an ongoing problem.

Welcome to GoodGym Lydia - lovely to meet you!
