Last night we had a post-storm sextet out to help out Roxane from Sustrans clear up a little green space they look after in Lower Sydenham.

We kicked off at The Bridge House with the biggest question: favourite band?? Some well thought out answers and excellent taste in music.

We then had quite a picturesque 3km run to the task, taking in some of the waterlink way. When we arrived we met Roxane who told us about the space and Sustransโ€™ involvement in gradually making it a safer and more pleasant place to walk through to the station. We had two tasks:

โœ‚๏ธ Louise and Zara got straight into chopping back some of the undergrowth which was spreading onto the paths.

๐Ÿ—‘๏ธ And the rest of us grabbed pickers and bags and were on the hunt for litter, often well hidden under the weeds.

We got a good stretch of the path cleared and pretty much the whole area cleared of litter! Nice one team ๐Ÿคฉ

We took a couple of snaps to finish and did some jeffing (walking and running) to get home - raising and settling our pulses which is very good for the heart! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

See you next timeโœŒ๏ธ
