A beautiful sunny Saturday which started with Jane's first parkrun at Great Salterns.
Yvonne had also done parkrun so a litter pick was an excellent cool down option!
We headed to the tennis courts and round the pond picking up the usual suspects in the litter picking world! Our item of clothing this time was gloves, an unusual find in this warm weather 🧤
Our star find was a kid's scooter which had been thrown into the woods, the battle between us and the brambles and nettles was worth it in the end as the scooter was freed!
Same time next month for another BPA pick. 🚮

A sunny evening spent at the beach, what more could you want?
Wilson's evening was made with finds of a 3 blue toy pieces and a cracker moustache!
Harry kept it safe, keeping their helmet on for the whole evening!
As the group spread out, some potent poos were found on the beach, inspiring the report title (sorry!). 💩
Thanks to Dave for bringing the litter pickers and the scales so we could calculate how much we collected.
Amongst the many bits of plastic we found socks (of course!), some carpet and a pair of glasses.
Well done to everyone for the clearing. We've definitely picked up a lot of litter from here during 2023.
Tonight's final total was 12.97kg of rubbish.

If you want a job doing, give it to GG!
We were tasked by Green Plan to save 150 AA batteries from landfill and have them recycled properly.
But where's the fun in being limited?! A superb effort from everyone has seen us collect 301 AA batteries, along with a few waifs and strays in the form of triple A, 9v and some coin cells! Great work gang.

We smashed our goal of collecting 21 recycled garments for our ChangeX Green Plan challenge. Thanks to 11 Goodgym heroes, we had 60 lovely clothes items to deliver to our local RSPCA in Fratton, plus another 26 items are incoming this week!
Catherine even went out of her way despite a headache to hand deliver some lovely socks and stockings!
Always happy to support our animal friends and the RSPCA was very grateful for the contribution.

We welcomed Lily back to GoodGym after some time away this evening - lovely to have you back again, Lily!
Many hands made light work of our leaflet drop. Splitting up in to small teams, we got through our stack of flyers so quickly we even had time for a cheeky drink in a local pub garden.
I think more time was spent trying to come up with a Madness related pun as the event we were promoting included a Madness Tribute Band... "Claggy Trousers" as it got rather warm... it turns out our Ska Music knowledge wasn't really up to much!
