Our litter pick around Gipsy Lane/Cheney Lane area was just the 1st of February pick-me-up we all needed. Armed with gloves, bags and litter pickers we were on a mission to clean up the mean streets of Headington.
We divided into 2 groups to clean up both sides of Gipsy Lane and then parted ways as one group went down Cheney Lane and the other swung around through some of the residential streets. With both Oxford Brookes University Campus and Cheney School nearby this is a high footfall area, and sadly attracts large amounts of litter.
This week's magical mystery litter pick turned up car parts, food containers, crisp packets, sweetie wrappers, bottles galore, many coffee cups, a teddy bear, items of clothing, a set of keys, a condom wrapper, and a stash of out of date food cans.

On Saturday evening, a group of us gathered in the Lord Mayor's Parlour for a festive celebration. The room was decorated with holiday cheer, and there was an abundance of snacks and wine to enjoy. As we mingled and caught up with one another, we couldn't help but overhear the excitement coming from the adjacent room where an F1 party was taking place. Despite the hustle and bustle next door, we were able to have a lovely time in the Lord Mayor's Parlour. One of the highlights of the evening were the chocolate prizes that were up for grabs. In addition to the chocolate prizes, there was also a life-size plush toy tiger that many GoodGymers took turns posing with for pictures. It added a fun and playful element to the party. As if that wasn't enough excitement, we also had the opportunity to try on the Lord Mayor's gowns. It was a unique and memorable experience, and we all had a great time trying on the different outfits and taking pictures. Overall, it was a wonderful evening filled with good company, delicious food and drink, and plenty of fun and laughter. We left the Lord Mayor's Parlour feeling festive and joyful, ready to continue celebrating the holiday season.

10 GoodGymers, and our honourary GoodGymer Penny, took on our semi-regular task of clearing up the litter in Magdalen Wood. Magdalen Wood is a lovely patch with a terrible litter problem. We are always sad to see how much rubbish is thrown down in the woods between our visits. This time, with the brambles and nettles dying back, we were able to get at a lot of the problem spots more easily and clear litter that may have been sat under a tangle of vegetation for a while.
We filled sacks and sacks with cans and bottles, picked up several Unidentified Metal Objects, a bike frame, pieces of carpet, glasses cases, and most sadly of all a full sack of needles.
We're happy we left the woods in a better state than we found them, but it's sad that this is such an ongoing problem.
Welcome to GoodGym Lydia - lovely to meet you!

This evening we headed to Headington to distribute flyers for our upcoming litterpick in Magdalen Wood.
We strolled through the main thoroughfare of fair Headington, posting flyers, flashing our GG t shirts, eating cannoli and stocking up on a few bits from Waitrose........
