Thames21, the charity dedicated to improving London’s waterways, is inviting volunteers in Fulham to join them for a community river clean-up.

The Sands End river clean-up is taking place on Saturday 25 May, from 10.30am till 12.20pm at Broomhouse Dock, at the southern end of Broomhouse Lane by the Hurlingham Club.

As well as helping to clean up the foreshore, volunteers can take part in a litter survey,

This means collecting the litter and categorising it into sewage derived litter, plastic items, and other litter. Thames21 says this will help them to determine and record which category is the biggest problem.

During this session, there will also be river dipping, beach exploration and a chance to socialise and enjoy the outdoors.

The charity says this will be a fun, relaxed event and everyone is welcome to come, learn, explore and enjoy.

Though this event is free to join, volunteers are asked to book their place online.
