South East Rivers Trust (& the Wandle Trust)

Interested in getting involved with some river restoration on the Hogsmill?

The South East Rivers Trust and Kingston University are working together to renaturalise a 100m length of river in the centre of Kingston. Over three phases, we will fix felled trees into the river, introduce brash and gravel followed by planting it all up.

We need lots of volunteers to make this a reality, so please sign up for as many dates as you can!

All tools and equipment will be provided with instruction, plus a tasty lunch and refreshments will be laid on.

Phase 1: Staking of trees, Mon 24, Tues 25 February, 10am-4pm

Phase 2: Riverbank building, Sat 15, Sun 16, Mon 17 March, 10am-4pm

Phase 3: Planting, Wed 02 April, 10am-4pm

For more information and to sign up, please email

Having recently retired (aged 61), I would be interested in volunteering on cleaning/clearing local rivers. I live in Kingston and ideally would like somewhere local to do this (being a non-driver).
Can you let me know what opportunities are available.

Many thanks
Adam Hogg


Hi Adam,
For volunteering with us – the easiest thing to do is join our mailing list. We send all opportunities out to this so you won’t miss a thing:
We don’t currently have much in Kingston, but there are other groups who do. Best email and we will be able to advise with some more specifics.
