Juliet Morris and a production team from the BBC spent over two hours with cleanup volunteers from the Wandle Trust on the evening of Monday 10 September at Trewint Street.
The programme on Sunday focussed on London and featured our mini cleanup as well as footage from other stretches of the Wandle. We are grateful to Wandsworth Council who at very short notice came out and picked up the rubbish we had collected.
This photo shows Gill being interviewed by Juliet Morris – both suitably attired in waders!
… and here’s the whole production team with Gill and Erica.
The programme will be aired on BBC1’s Countryfile on Sunday 16 September at 11 am. If after seeing the programme you’d like to support us, why not join us at a future cleanup?
We’d also really appreciate help with funding, our Trout in the Classroom project, fund-raising and our river restoration projects. Please do contact us by email or phone, we’d love to hear from you.
