Due to reasons beyond our control tonight's task had to cancel at the last minute, not to be stopped we decided to put on a plog of the park.

Nathan cycled down to provide us with plenty of litter picking bags, even though he wasn't joining us for the session (what a STAR) and whilst waiting we welcomed back Peter after a whole YEAR and to the FIRST ever session we welcomed Siki.

All gloved and bagged up we split into two group, one for the walkers and one for the runners and off we went. First, we made our way to the fields of Junior parkrun to see if they needed a tidy up, along the way hitting the rugby club car park and trying to figure out how you can lose your socks?

After 20 minutes it was spotless and time to move on, so we got together and ran ourselves over to the start of the Blackweir parkrun (I'm sensing a theme here). We found a dog or three along the way who seemed as though they wanted to join as our mascots, chatted to some locals about goodgym and what we do whilst also obviously cleaning the well-used pathways.

As we got close to the beginning there was just enough time to quickly hit the balance trail and test our skills, from rope bridges to springboards it was certainly a test and great fun.

A quick photo for the end and our evening was complete, thanks to everyone for helping to keep the park the beautiful place that we all need it to be.
