Volunteers urged to get stuck in at Bow Creek clean up
Volunteers are needed for a muddy clean up of a river bank in the East End.
Green charity Thames 21 predicts that the event at Bow Creek foreshore will be quite demanding and helpers who turn out on Saturday (January 22) from 8.30am to 11am and on Sunday (January 23) from 9am to 11am will need to be prepared but will make a difference by clearing the foreshore of rubbish which has been fly-tipped there.
Organiser Aimee Felus said: “Please be aware this is a very muddy foreshore (knee deep in places) and the clean up will be physically demanding. Access to the foreshore is down a concrete slope and the rubbish items are particularly heavy. We will provide overalls, but you may wish to bring a change of clothes.
“This clean up will be good fun and very satisfying, but I want to make sure everyone knows what they are letting themselves in for.”
Volunteers should meet near the On the Run Cafe and Esso petrol station at Silvocea Way, near East India DLR.
