It was almost a spring time evening when a lovely mix of Goodgymmers assembled at the Wanstead base.

Both Hamad as Sam came down for their first ever Goodgym experience, a staple of the GG arsenal, a litter pick.

Helen spotted a good target on her way in, so it was decided that the walkers, under watchful eye of Linda, would tackle that one, while the runners would go down the usual pathways along the A12.

The jog down to the paths gave us the chance to get to know Hamad & Sam before getting stuck into the litter pick. As usual, there was enough to find along the path, especially near the Green Man Roundabout. There Sam's local knowledge came to the fore, knowing about a dead fox nearby - now logged again with the council to sort out.

Bags dropped at what is now the usual council bin, off we set on a run around the Leyton Flats, at a lovely pace set by an energetic Sam.

Back at base, people went their own way, happy with a nice evening well spent!

The next couple of group runs are a little up in the air, with a potential Babybank visit on the 19th but perhaps a leaflet drop that week instead - tasks will be updated / logged as soon as we know.
