Had a great morning picking up litter in the park next to our house. We had kids, parents and wise old elders all helping out for an hour or so. I had the fun job of doing the sweep of the kids playground - at 6+months pregnant I had to use this helpful 'grabber' (is there a more official name for it?) to cleanse the playground of many crisp packets and tiny sticky lolly sticks. Felt like the summer was tidied away and the park was ready for autumn by the end. Since then i've been enjoying seeing families up in the space which in general looks a lot happier.
