James, Linda and John arrived at Wanstead House and had a little wait for the new member. As is often the way with first timers they were a no show so we gathered our kit and set off on a litter pick. Surprisingly we got half a bagful from just outside the door to our meeting room. Staff there told us people have been hanging around there at weekends and evenings leaving food and drink packaging behind.

We moved on from there to one of our regular areas where pickings are usually plentiful and found...well...very little for much of the way. It seemed someone had gone before us. About 3/4 of the way down the path we began to see stuff so literally picked up where the others had left off.

In the end a respectable bag and a half was collected and left by the litter bin. After which we walked back, with the talk all being about food as we looked forward to our long awaited dinners.
