The recent storms certainly had a lot to answer for - our return to the Tipner shoreline couldn't have come soon enough!

An insane amount of debris and litter covered the entire beach - with delightful finds from tampons and socks, to buoys and boat seats!

Wilson would have been impressed with Katie's limbless Barbie find. And always one to make any situation more GoodGym, I enjoyed a spot of skipping with a recovered piece of rope.

Some of the rubbish we found was so big we had to abandon the bin bags and fill up a battered old boat with tires, tents and tarpaulins. This has been reported to PCC in a hope they'll remove it as its now all in one place.

When the wild winds were joined by the rain, we decided to call it quits and hot-footed it back to base. Well done for a valiant effort this evening, team!

Area Activator for GoodGym Portsmouth. I swear like a sailor, burp like a foghorn. Human A - Z of Portsmouth. Ultimately charming.
