The 3 Rivers Clean Up for 2019 will soon be over. We have had a lot of people volunteer and have managed to remove a lot of litter from Lewisham’s rivers. There are still a few events this week and so if you would like to take part, please visit our calendar of events for information for how you can get involved.
The Nature’s Gym volunteers had a great day clearing litter from the River Ravensbourne. There was very little balsam, but they did clear 12 bags of litter. We were lucky with the weather in once sense because it finally stopped raining, but on the other hand the river was very deep and we were thankful for the waders. Some parts were even too deep for our waders and there was a lot of climbing in and out. It is always a very satisfying job though and the volunteers were rewarded with tea and jammie dodgers at the end
This year’s 3 Rivers Clean Up will take place between 3rd June – 23rd June. There will be plenty of opportunities to take par throughout the 3 weeks. Keep checking the calendar as more events are added. If you would like to organise a specific event for your team/organisation, please contact us and we will do our best to organise something.
There is plenty of information on this site about the event, but please feel free to email if you can’t find the answer to your question. All events are FREE and great fun, but please remember to book with the event organiser.
It is finally here! The 2017 3 Rivers Clean Up is underway with the first event in Ladywell Fields on Saturday 3rd June. What a glorious day we had for it too! Ten happy volunteers from Nature’s Gym, plus a few friends donned waders an climbed in to the river to remove litter and Himalayan Balsam. We managed to collect 10 bags of litter but only a few Himalayan balsam plants. There is still plenty of opportunities to take park, so check out our calendar of events too see how you can get involved.
