It was in clear blue skies and sunshine we left our office, Goldfinch Estate Agents, on Fowler Street, South Shields on Monday evening for our Litter and Laugh Walk.
A great turn out with regular and new walkers joining us along with a lot of the Goldfinch Team giving their time up to help & support.
The emphasis on the night as always was relaxed, friendly and fun. A great way to meet new people & share ideas on how we can all better South Tyneside & help our environment.
As you can see from this photo above of our route, we are so close to the North Sea and the River Mouth. Intercepting litter before it hits the seas is vital if we are to help protect our marine life from unnecessary danger.
The route we walked was from the office down Ocean Road and in to the Marine Park. From there on to the Sea Front and then across and up in to the Westoe Crown Village.
On the health & social side of the walk, we covered approx 3.34 mile, burned off approx 336 calories & done 11.4K steps then enjoyed complimentary beverages courtesy of the Westoe Crown Hub . http://westoe-hub.co.uk/
The main things we picked up were empty glass alcohol bottles, plastic water bottles, cans of beer and pop, loads of plastic straws and takeaway cartons.
We even found a can of beer unopened dating back to 2015! Oh and we also came back with an abandoned Morrison’s Shopping Trolley!
Many thanks to everyone who gave up their time to come help. It is very much appreciated.
Below are some photos captured on the evening to help give you an idea of what our walks are like. If you are interested in joining us on our next one which takes place Monday 24th June at 6pm, then please get in touch.
