Events Calendar

The Wandle Trust holds community river cleanups on the second Sunday of every month, usually rotating through the London Boroughs of Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth, as well as other occasional events.

Here’s what’s coming up in the not-too-distant future: we hope to see you soon!

If you’ve been to one of our cleanups, please complete our short survey to give us some much needed feedback.

Sunday 8th October 2017 – King George’s Park, Wandsworth

Join us in October as part of the Great River Rescue – a national initiative to cleanup our precious waterways and tackle plastic pollution.

We will be heading to King George’s Park, meeting near the Nuffield Sports Centre by Lydden Road. Please arrive for 11am for our Health and Safety briefing.

If you haven’t been before, we supply all the equipment you need such as chest waders and gloves, but as it is dirty work we recommend you wear old clothes and sturdy footwear such as walking boots or wellies. We serve teas and coffees during a lunch break but suggest you bring yourselves a packed lunch. If you have any questions about the event, or can’t find us on the day, call Polly on 07833 497 599.
