For the final Group Run task of 2023 we were in Manor Road Park, where the river Lea flows out from the town centre. The banks of this section of recently restored riverbank had become strewn with plastic litter that had washed up on the sides so we set to work with our litter pickers tidying it all up before it got washed further downstream.

Also in the river was the remains of one of the park's bins, unhelpfully smashed and thrown in but skillfully retrieved by Martin with a big long rod and a hook on the end.

Some trolleys that had also been dumped in the river has unfortunately been washed along and out of the park and we couldn't reach them, annoying!

But we did manage to retrieve an enormous drainage tube and roll that up to the roadside for collection along with 7 bags of rubbish, the smashed bin a bucket and some other assorted junk.
