Picking up litter makes us fitter but the mood was all about food!

Welcome to Arpit who came along to their first group run tonight! It was great to meet you!

After a task 'pivot' due to a last minute cancellation, four Good Gymers rolled up their hi-vis sleeves, lit their torches and got to work collecting rubbish strewn along the waterfront and river.

And light work was made of the task as we filled three large rubbish bags. We also disposed of another carrier bag that had already been packed with litter. Has our litter collection started to sow seeds of clearing up? Fingers crossed!

But clearly the colder weather is impacting our appetites as the real conversation turned to food: whats for tea?! And as four veggie Good Gymers, plenty of dinner inspiration was shared! And that's one of the beautiful things about Good Gym: turn up yo collect rubbish, leave with new recipes. Win win.

Well done everyone, especially as the evenings are shorter.
