Five experienced good-deeders arrived at Highgate Woods cafe to be greeted by friend-of-GoodGym Cindy, who's been the ranger at the woods for decades, and has been working with us for a good few of those years.

It was a cold, dry morning, but recent rain left the area where the planned task was to take place, rather too muddy and wet. So instead, we were given litter-pickers and bags, and sent to clear the woods of any unwanted packaging and drink containers.

At first glance, the area looked remarkably litter-free, but further inspection within prickly bushes, and especially behind benches, revealed the presence of a veritable treasure trove of crisp packets, plastic bottles and drink cans.

Task completed, we look forward to returning to this great spot soon, to undertake the original planned task.
