Help Keep The Wandle Clean

Community clean-up on December 12

The Wandle Trust organises community clean-ups of the River Wandle on the second Sunday of every month, rotating between the boroughs of Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth.

The next clean-up is in Merton and it takes place on Sunday December 12 at Waterside Way, off Plough Lane, Wimbledon, when volunteers will be playing their part in helping keep the water in the Wandle some of the cleanest in London.

It starts at 11am and it is likely to go on for four hours, with the volunteers usually collecting at least two skips full of rubbish. Wandle Trust Christmas cards, designed by Trustee Jane Porter and printed locally, will be on sale at the event.

Organisers supply a limited number of waders, plus protective gloves and First Aid facilities, but ask volunteers to bring their own wellies and wear old clothes. For further information, email or see
