Take the chance to explore your local rivers this summer- late June means the 3 Rivers Clean Up! Saturday 21 June – Saturday 12 July.
This is an annual celebration of The Quaggy, The Ravensbourne and The Pool- a Festival of Rivers! Volunteers are invited to join local conservationists and experts in woodland management on the river banks and in the water.
3RCU is organised by Thames 21 alongside lots of local volunteer organisations. There are events in the following parks:
- Manor Park in Hither Green.
- Chinbrook Meadows in Grove Park,
- Cornmill Gardens in Deptford
- Beckenham Place Park,
- Ladywell Fields.
It’s family friendly festival and you can pick a suitable activity – river walks, pond dipping, removing invasive species or a litter pick. Thames 21 provide all the equipment- just dress appropriately.
Check the events calender for an activity near you.
There is always an awesome After Party- this year it it in Ladywell Fields (north, by the cafe): Friday 11th July, 6-9pm with The Black Smock Band.
