Kingston upon Thames

Community mission

Where, oh where, will this plog LEAD us?

2 GoodGymers made their way 8.0km to help the South West London Environment Network in Kingston upon Thames.

We met for the latest installment of Luminous Jackets on Tour: The Post-Work Plog - but Samia let the team down, having left said jacket in her bag. Ooops!

Nevertheless, the plog would go on and we headed out on a circular tour to Canbury Gardens with our bags and matching gloves. It began like any other plog, the usual items of chocolate bar wrappers and cans entering the bags - but Nicky noted that local litterers had an affinity for some brand of menthol gum (or maybe all have colds at the same time?) and then...

Oooh, it's a bag for the bag!

Samia had found some kind of case with an electronic item and lots of leads inside. What could this be?, we pondered. The excitement was overrated as it turned out to be a calculator when Nicky cast her headtorch on it - but I still wonder why it case in such a huge case with all the leads? Oh the wondrous mysteries of the Post-Work Plog!

2 rubbish bags full of, well, rubbish, we bid our farewells and Samia scuttled off enthusiastically remembering that she could buy ice cream!

Keep your eyes peeled for the next installment of Luminous Jackets on Tour (I'll try to remember to wear mine next time...)!
