Hooary! After two years away the 3 Rivers Clean Up is back. We are all really pleased that this great event can go ahead again this year and look forward to welcoming volunteers, both new and our regulars.
This year’s event will be held between 11th June – 10th July 2022 and we hope that there will be a range of activities. Please keep an eye out on this site because this is where you will find all the information you need to take part.
Please note that booking is essential for all activities. Each activity will have a named organiser and you should contact them if you have any further questions or want to book.
If you can’t wait until June, there are plenty of other ways to get involved in the rivers or your local green space. Just visit out ‘get involved’ page for more details. For more information on the groups involved, please visit our ‘partners’ page.
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
The first planning meeting for the 2017 3 Rivers Clean Up was held on 8 February. We were joined by representatives from Nature’s Gym, Thames21, Friends of Sutcliffe Park and QWAG. This year the festival will be held between 3 June – 24 June. Watch this space for more information!
