Shaking off a chill in the air with a jog up the hill led by Jack and back down into Petersham Common to meet Ken with his high-vis vests, bags and litter pickers.

We set to work collecting sadly discarded rubbish. Bags and bags were collected from the roadside, most likely thrown from passing vehicles. Amongst it all, many cans, wrappers, a shoe, a BMW badge, a parking penalty notice and a random number 27!

Our run came in at 5km with one member opting to walk and another cycling: there are always options for those who want to run less, walk, cycle or meet at the task.

This run marked 50 good deeds for Rebecca who wore the sash with pride and enjoyed legendary celebration brownies by Salwa in the pub after.
