3 Rivers Clean up at Beckenham Place Park

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.

Nature’s Gym volunteers at Beckenham Place Park

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
