A great start to the Bank Holiday weekend!

On stage at Kew

Last weekend we gave a talk on stage at Kew Gardens as part of the 2011 summer Start Initiative.  Set up by the Prince’s Charities Foundation, the Start Initiative aims to help people start living more sustainably, whether that be living a low carbon life or volunteering for a local organisation such as the Wandle Trust.

Our talk took the format of a question and answer session which resulted in a lot of questions (and answers) about our cleanups.  So it was just as well that we had taken along a brand new ‘Wandle Alphabet’ poster created by our very own Jane Porter with the help of many volunteers who have pulled out a variety of ‘letters’ from the Wandle over the past few years!  If that sounds familiar it’s probably because our last Christmas card was made from these letters too!
