Ocean Litter: Action from Source to Sea (Sunday 22nd February,11am to 3pm, King George's Park, Lydden Road, Earlsfield)

Join other local volunteers for the Wandle Trust’s ocean-themed cleanup in King George’s Park and help raise awareness of the litter in our waterways and oceans.

Litter in the ocean has many known sources but it is still unclear how much is from UK waterways such as the Wandle and the Thames. 

The Wandle Trust has joined forces with Thames 21 and the Marine Conservation Society for a week of Action from Source to Sea

What to expect
As always, please arrive in time for a Health and Safety briefing at 11 am.
 
Volunteers will then get waders on and work through until 3 pm with a break at about 1 pm for tea, coffee and refreshments provided by the Wandle Trust.  You may like to bring your own picnic lunch.

Wandsworth Council will arrange collection of any litter and rubbish removed.

What to wear and what to bring
It is dirty work, so you’re recommended to wear old clothes and sturdy footwear such as walking boots or wellies. You may wish to bring a change of clothes in case you get wet!

How to get there
The nearest station is Earlsfield train station, a short walk to King George’s Park. Buses on Garratt Lane (44 and 270) and Merton Road (156) are also close by to the Park.

This cleanup is supported through the River Guardians Project funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and is part of the Living Wandle Landscape Partnership
