Get your wellies on - Wandle Trust clean up this Sunday

Erica writes:

Hello Everyone!

This month we will be returning to Kimber Road, pitching our gazebo in King George's Park, getting into the river under the bridge and working our way upstream.
There is parking in Kimber Road itself or in Twilley Street; there is a fence to which you can chain bicycles, and it's about a 5 minute walk from Garratt Lane where the 44 and 270 buses travel up and down.  It is, however, about a 15 minute walk from Earlsfield overground station.
Please click here to see where we'll be meeting.

What to expect
Please arrive in time for our Health and Safety briefing at 11am.  If you arrive later than that, don't worry, you'll be asked to read the briefing and sign in to confirm your understanding of the guidelines, and agreement to adhere to them.
We'll work through until 3pm with a break at about 1pm for tea, coffee and cake provided by us.  You may like to bring your own picnic lunch.
As ever, we're extremely grateful to Joanna and Michael and the rest of the Waste Management team at Wandsworth Council for their support in taking the rubbish away.

What to wear/ What to bring
We provide a number of pairs of safety chest waders for you to use. We have also 'recycled' some old chest waders and have turned these into Wellingtons which you are most welcome to wear.   They tend to be slightly larger sizes though.  Please bring a pair of socks if you want to borrow a pair.  Other than that, could you please wear walking/working type boots or your own Wellingtons as these provide good foot protection.
We provide gloves and other pieces of equipment including litter pickers.  Please wear old clothes you don't mind getting dirty and layers as the weather may be changeable!  It's always worth bringing a change of clothes too, particularly socks, just in case your waders spring a leak!
See you next Sunday!
