This one's written in memory of Matthew Perry, a courageous and talented man who will be missed by many.

Today a couple of us met for a run before the usual monthly litter pick in a trial of a Sunday Group Run! Shout out to Nicole my new neighbour who joined me on her very first group run! We met the rest of the group on the common to start the task and it wasn't for the faint hearted today with the heavens opening just as we started the litter pick. I can't speak for our other GoodGymers - Felicity, John, Sarah and Marta were off doing good across the far reaches of the common. These guys know the best spots for litter being regulars here! Meanwhile, Nicole, myself, Lukas and Maria squelched our way through high hill and yonder vale, picking up nappies, stella, nitrous oxide and a rather impressive torn apart guitar. It always amazes me that something so miserable as traipsing through the rain picking up litter can be made fun when we're together.

Maria had some geeky moments, searching for mushrooms and deciding they weren't the psychedelic kind!

A lovely morning, topped off with some hot chai provided by Green S Welfare UK.

Until next time, folks!
