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
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
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
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!
