Last night, we welcomed Isabella to our group of wonderful volunteers, welcome Isabella it was a pleasure to meet you. Once all the introductions were done, it was time to head on our way to one of our local Brueton park, running a slightly longer way there, always wanting to make sure we get as many kilometres in as possible during the week. Once we arrived, it was time to find as much rubbish as possible. We started off by going into the slightly wooded area of the car park for any rubbish that may have blown in there, then worked our way through the rest of the park, finding as much rubbish as possible. 

Once we were done, it was time for the obligatory photo with our full rubbish bags before heading back to base again the slightly longer way. Once back, it was time for a quick stretch before heading inside for a drink and chat.

We will be back next week, hope to see you there.
