Litter picking with a view (if it was in daylight)...

Tue 25 Jan
Report written by Rachel Carthy

Ashley, Tracy, Tracey, Pete, Gwyn and Rachel went litter picking along the River Derwent on Tuesday evening.

Tracey was our official photographer and Ashley had his weights training backpack again. It was great to welcome back some of the members we hadn't seen since before Christmas and hear what everyone had been getting up to on our walk towards the city centre and train station.

We collected 8 full bin bags of mostly empty food packaging, lots of bottles and cans, facemasks and tissues. We also found a nappy and almost made our way to a complete outfit of: a pair of glasses, a jacket, a pair of shoes and a sock. All found separately strewn along the riverside.

We had thanks given to us by a passing run group and left the bags by the only bin we passed on our journey to be collected by the council.

Meet at Jurys Inn outside reception at 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start. There are toilets and a luggage facility we can use.

Plan to litter pick in Derby city centre this time.

Please wear your GoodGym t shirt if you have one, gloves, a bin bag and a litter picker (I have a few to hand out if you don't have one). Please bring a headtorch and wear a hi-vis if you have one.

Please sign up if you're planning to attend and also remove yourself from the register if you can no longer make it - so I know who to look out for and don't leave without anyone.

I need to know in advance who needs a litter picker so I don't have to carry multiple ones with me during the session if they're not being used - please let me know in advance rachelcarthy@goodgym.org

All paces and abilities are welcome.

Three bags full....

Tue 18 Jan
Report written by Rachel Carthy

Ashley and Pete met for an evening litter picking session to clear up the streets of Derby.

We mostly found facemasks, tissues, receipts and lots of food and drink packaging. We spent a lot of time around seating areas and outside of takeaway venues and restaurants where there was plenty of litter to clear. This led to lots of talk about food and what we were all having for tea...

Well done to Ashley who was carrying a weighted backpack as part of his current training plan and Pete who is still suffering with an achilles injury.

We were thanked by lots of passers by and managed to collect 3 bags of litter so a really worthwhile evening.
