One might have assumed that litter picking was not going to be the most exciting task, however, the five of us had quite a good time in the Littleheath Woods. Surprisingly, none of us has ever been to the woods before. Compared to our previous mission, there wasn’t too much rubbish to pick but we still managed to collect 9 bags of all sorts of discarded items.

We followed the narrow paths, occasionally cheering on marathon runners, and hoped to not get lost. Towards the end of our task, we came across a colourful meadow covered in thistle and a muddy pond. Some of us decided to have a go at climbing a rope thinking we can do it like a navy seal.

A big thanks to Tracey who provided all the equipment and collected the rubbish for us.
