On a longer and hillier route than usual we were glad to once again meet up with the all time legend that is Irene Wadsworth.

Once we hit the peak of the hill on Gleadless valley top the wind was also peaking, filling our bags with wind, ready for the litter that we would fill them with. And oh was there a lot to go at, from chip forks, to wrappers, cans and even somethings that resembled brains, we picked it and bagged it!

At the end of the task a significant amount of litter had been bagged, ready for the council to take it away in the near future.

On route back we took advantage of some freshly mown grass to play some kids games where we got into groups of certain numbers and then did a different exercise each time with the reps being the number that was called. Great stuff!

Once back and stretched off we headed into the Showroom for hand washing and delicious delights!

Until next time, happy running! :)
