River Cleanup – Poulter Park, River Wandle, in London Rivers Week

June 27 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free
Hogsmill cleanup

Activity Description: Join us during London Rivers Week at Poulter Park to don waders and enter the Wandle to remove litter and plastic pollution. Rubbish in our rivers is a big problem. Not only is it unsightly, it also has a huge environmental impact; harming wildlife and leaking chemicals and pollutants into the water. If it’s not picked up, it often makes its way into our oceans where it is estimated it will persist for hundreds of years, damaging marine ecosystems and even ending up in our food chain as micro-plastics.

Meeting point: Meet near to Mitcham and Carshalton Rugby Club, off Peterborough Road, Carshalton, SM5 1DT.  Google map HERE

What to bring: Please wear appropriate clothes and footwear. If it is hot, please bring a hat and sun cream. There will be options to work from the bank or in the water in waders. We will provide tea, coffee and biscuits but please bring a bottle of water and a packed lunch.
