It was so lovely to see Catherine for an early morning litter pick (give her a cheer!)
This hidden passageway off Elm Grove is a thing of beauty, with its wall art and displays from the neighbouring school. But it was spoilt by the litter and the fly-tipping.
30 minutes later, with help from a local resident, and it was as clean as it deserves to be. And Portsmouth folk are as friendly as ever, giving thanks and appreciation as they passed by.

60 more cans added to the ChangeX Green Plan challenge sees GG smash another task.
A great mix of foods were donated this evening and helped fill out a number of the containers.

We joined Scott from People & Stories and John from Action Asylum with his team of volunteers for a shore clean this morning.
Most of our finds were rather uninspiring but standard - lolly sticks, vapes, McDonalds ketchup containers amongst a huge amount of microplastic nurdles. Rather appropriately for Armistice Day, Jen and Action Asylum volunteer Adam found a carrier bag containing an Army Brigadier uniform. John and Catherine had some military know-how and were able to work out some details from the buttons.
The sun shining made for a lovely morning out know the shoreline. Thanks to Scott and John for inviting us to join.

Portsmouth Report written by Portsmouth runner
Catherine, Tom and Mel were today helping Kids Clothes Line pack up and leave their current premises to move to new and bigger storage in Havant. The weather was lovely and sunny and perfect for what we needed to do. There was a huge amount of clothes containers, boxers, hangered clothes in bags, paper carrier bags of sorted/allocated clothing, crockery, heaters, boxes of paper bags, and a small table to go. We had a good number of people helping out and to make things move a little bit quicker and safely we formed a line of people leading from the upstairs storage loft, down some steep stairs, and out to the van for loading. It was very effective and it took under an hour to move it all downstairs. Not quite everything went on the larger van, but a smaller van was used to pick up the balance of items and driven over to the new premises - whilst waiting for the smaller van we swept up and left a nice clear area of space for another use and took a welcome refreshment break in the sunshine. More Goodgymers and other helpers were waiting in Havant to offload and move everything to the new space with the benefit of trollies and a lift. It was a lovely task and our help at both sites were much appreciated by the charity. It's a temporary move until new storage is available back in Portsmouth - hopefully, we'll be able to help Kids Clothes Line out again in the future.
