Heya will there be any tools available? I don't have my own litter picking stick, also the time of the event and description differs, which is the right one?

Hey Astrid - I have litter pickers. I've updated the task now. Apologies for cthe confusion. It's a rescheduled one hence the confusion!

Rain rain go away!
With some very challenging weather 5 of us met up on the windy beach front. Huge thanks to my team
And not forgetting Simba and Hudson - our 4 legged friends who barked and sniffed their way through the task!
We were not sure what to expect today as recently the beach has been relatively clean when we have done tasks there.
However today it felt really worthwhile as there was a lot of rubbish, sea debris, and most importantly fishing lines and thin rope that could easily get caught up with the birds and other sea life.
We headed out west to the Lido then worked our way back along the beach with Daisy and Craig crawling under the pier to reach those 'must get' bits of rubbish. Against a rapidly rising tide washing near our ankles I was getting rather jittery ( with my big health and safety hat on! ) whilst Daisy and Craig were admiring a huge dog fox ambling around right at the back of the pier. As I was holding the blue bag and holding Hudson too I got increasingly more worried as I didn't fancy those 2 meeting face to face.
1 hour later ( and I'm sure the photos speak for themselves ) it was mission accomplished with Worthing central beach being 4 bags lighter than when we started ( plus 5 more good deeds notched up in the January challenge! )
Great work team

Weather update !
After the rain came the icy blast ! but thankfully it wasn't so bad for our task tonight as it is now, as I write this ( extremely late ) report.
Despite travelling heavy with a luminous 'go' jacket which has everything one could possibly need for a few days away, including an umbrella (but not a toothbrush) Sarah had not signed up to the task in advance of meeting up. This is entirely due to weather forecast ! With this in mind, imagine her horror when, having ventured out at the last possible minute to meet us, as well as closely checking on the weather, we headed out of Splashpoint Leisure Centre into some damp drizzle in the air. Her face was a picture ! I wish i had taken a photo of it !
Ricky led the way for the run to our task for this evening at Anchor Gardens just west of our meeting point.
On arrival we hunkered down into the task. thank goodness for Uncle Ivo's lights that he kindly purchased for us BC! We embarked on a tidy up of these seafront community gardens.
Gillybean, Rosalind, Sue,John, Craig ( AKA Gregg), Ricky and, surpise surpise, it was lovely that Steve who came along too, all threw themselves into weeding, digging and pruning whilst I was the bagger !
Ros, Sarah and Craig opted for fitness drills whilst the rest of the team continued gardening. The highlight was Tamsin's spin the wheel December challenge. Todays spin instructed 20 burpees but, just for fun, and amidst confusion on the exact number, I increased the number to 30! The lucky 3 also enjoyed a plethora of other functional bodyweight exercises and sprints too.
Photos done, tools and lights away and we all disappeared in different direction.
Next week is the last one before the Christmas break. Meeting at Worthing Leisure Centre and wrapped up with as many layers as you can muster onto your body. Afterwards its drinks to say a sad 'A bientot' to Ros. More details on the venue to follow.
Apologies for the greatness of the lateness of this report. ' Tis officially the crazy season.....
Much GG love
