Many congratulations this morning to Super GoodGymmer Jo for reaching a phenomenal 200 Good Deeds! She donned the GoodGym Cape for our task this morning, and absolutely rocked the power pose!

Our litter pick this morning began with the discovery of a dog shark carcass on the beach - Rosie is now getting a reputation for finding animal remains on her missions!!

There wasn't much litter on the beach, so we headed to the Rock Gardens where a passer-by pointed us in the direction of a clearing full of party detritus and got to work. We found the packaging for two boxes of 24 laughing has canisters but only found 39 canisters - maybe they were polite enough to put the other 9 in the bin themselves.

Our nature spotting continued with a pond full of tadpoles and a heron, who seemed a little out of place amongst the magpies and pigeons!

Thanks everyone for their efforts today, the public (and the Colas workers) were very grateful for our help tidying up the seafront!
