The streets of New Malden are clear of litter and overhanging spiky plants thanks to a great group of GoodGymers!

Armed with loppers, secateurs and litter pickers Claire, Doris, Emily, Jade, Petra, Tom, Rachel, Dave and Emma met up with Councillors Kamala Kugan, Andrew Bolton and Andrew Sillett, who were keen for us to tidy up the roads in Coombe Vale.

We filled numerous bin bags with litter from the grass verges and alleyways and two huge waste bags with cuttings from plants which have been blocking the pavements.

The councillors were very grateful for the difference we made in such a short time as well as a few residents who popped out to thank us.

A very satisfying way to spend a sunny evening topped off with a chatty run back to our base at the Quaker Centre.
