It's great to combine doing good in the community whilst exercising, and having a lot of fun with like minded people. You don't have to be a fast runner to join, you can be a slow runner, a jogger or even a walker, as I am.

Feeling Crabby About Litter!

Sat 6 Mar
Report written by Mel Saxbee

Another beautiful day for a litter pick. A sunny welcome to Jonathan and Darryl, this being their first Goodgym mission. Huge congratulations to Eli, who with today's beach clean has reached 10 missions - well done Eli. And a big thank you to Sinéad for the pun.

Here is where everyone went:

Darryl and Jonathan went to Southsea beach this morning and did their litter pick as part of a morning run - a great combination. The beach was very clean so it was quite hard to find any rubbish but they still managed to fill half a bag, so definitely a worthwhile task.

Katie and Paul met at College Park and caught up/put the world to rights whilst finding the usual clothing: sock, bobble hat, glove. Interesting objects found were glasses & sunglasses both with only 1 arm in different parts of the park. A wing mirror (moped may be?) There was lots of re-cycling and they utilised the handy bottle banks to get rid of the glass found. A couple of people thanked them, and one lady even offered them a cup of tea or coffee. When they said no thank you, she told them where she lived and said to knock on her door if they changed their minds. This is such a nice thing to happen!

Eli and friend Sarah went to the beach next to South Sea Angling. They found a pair of underpants and a screwdriver! They also collected 3 bags of rubbish.

Rachel and Jo K were on Southsea Beach. Interesting finds were Apple ear pod holder. Otherwise not much litter found at all.

Mel ventured to Farlington Marsh Car Park area and filled 2 bags of the usual rubbish just around the shrubby area by the traffic lights. Hardly any re-cycling, and no interesting items of clothing or other unusual finds, just lots of small fiddly plastic bits! Tipped the first bag of rubbish in the handy bin nearby before taking a photo!

Ellie went to Goatee Beach in Southampton (sounds better than it actually is!) and although there wasn’t too much rubbish on the beach itself, managed to collect lots on the way down and back. This was Millie the dog’s 3rd litter pick of the year. A potential friend for Tess, our other canine honorary GG member, when we can get a larger group together perhaps?

John & Vicki were at Tipner Ranges end of Whale Island. Best finds were a shopping trolley, a nice men’s boot and a yellow rose. 3 very full bags of recycling, 1 packed bag of rubbish. Ran out of bags to do anymore. Definitely a place to keep going back to!

Sinéad was on the beach opposite the rose gardens. There was more litter than usual, mostly sweet wrappers and booze related, and lots of dead crabs. A 4 year old boy got chatting to her and even picked up a few bits of litter too (a Goodgymer in the making methinks!) His grandparents were telling him he couldn't follow her around, but perhaps getting him a small litter picker would be a great way to keep him amused!

Jo C and India went to the rock gardens and Southsea common for a sunset litter pick where they found Tonnes of litter! Check out the sunset photos - stunning!

Val and Judy walked the beach between Emsworth and Langstone Mill. Nothing of interest, just the usual litter, 1 beer bottle and a few blue plastic cotton wool buds.
