First litterpick of the year

The first litterpick of the year will be a short one, only one hour - weather permitting. Someone's making a short film about us and he wants to see us in action.
Meeting point is Henderson Gardens, the wee park on the corner of Yardheads and Henderson St, 11am, 27 Jan 2019.

We'll give you bin bags, gloves and litterpickers but if you have your own please bring it with you. Cheers.
