Portsmouth Report written by Portsmouth runner
It was back to one of our regular litterpicking spots this morning with Abby, Judy and Mel. It was a glorious day with a nice breeze coming off the sea. The tide had dropped another big pile of seaweed on to the beach, along with a host of plastics and other rubbish. Judy found a decorative fish hook, but we didn't find anything else unusual. In spite of us picking mostly small pieces, we still managed to fill a black bin liner and a container full of re-cycling. We could see the difference we'd made when we left the beach which was gratifying.

Abby brought lots of plants and cuttings from home to North End. These included healthy strawberry plants to add to the fruit abundance in the raised beds.
Judy preferred to hack and chop at the overgrown trees, sometimes dropping the cuttings onto the bench occupants!
No time to litter-pick the never-ending supply of beer cans. Next visit!

Best 2 smiles of the day - Abby's smile of satisfaction (and a little bit of smugness) when the lawn mower sprang into life at her touch, after Judy declared it broken.... and the smile of Mrs O after we had cut down the nettles, removed the brambles, pulled up the weeds and trimmed the shrubs.
Good deed done!

Our introductions took a lot longer than normal as we had so many of us along this evening - the most GoodGymers at a task since before lockdown. Jane from BPA struggled to fit everyone in one photo!
We managed to complete three tasks for the price of one - Team A cleared brambles, nettles and branches to make space for our bug hotel, Team B shovelled two tonnes of soil and delivered it the dipping pond area ready for the planting of the wildflower meadow and Team C took on a litter pick.
This task was also our first task of the autumnal season where we've needed crack out the headtorches. I'm going to miss our long summer evenings!
Fantastic work everyone!
