This evening we ventured to Botley to blitz the inevitable litter hotspots that build up and hide under the autumn leaves
A slightly chaotic start due to gridlock traffic necessitated chats about the weather and crisp sandwiches (always a good idea).
Once all were present and correct the garland of joy was presented to our newest and most unofficial member Miss Penelope! Thank you Julia for bringing her to meet us all!
We set out lights and litter-pickers in hand to tackle a few grot spots and amassed a large mountain of bags before our time was up. Items found ranged from the depressing (sharps, dealt with safely) to joyous (£10 given to Ben to take to the Halloween quiz), and the inevitable pants!
You are all wonderful and apologies again for my late arrival and stressful witterings!

Five Goodgymers met at the Perch pub for a litter-picking stroll down Binsey Lane in the autumn sunshine.
We swapped war stories from litter picks gone by, and chatted about everything from why James Bond would actually be a terrible spy to whether you could name a baby after an emoji, while clearing up the usual detritus found on the roadside - cans, bottles, food packaging, random lumps of metal - enlivened by many golf balls and some excellent teamwork in negotiating barbed wire.
Our haul of five hefty bags was deposited in the bins at West Oxford Community Centre, leaving Binsey Lane much tidier than we'd found it.
