Cranford Park Clean Up and Invasive Species Removal, Hillingdon

13th June 2015 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Free

Come and join Thames21 removing litter directly from the river which has become trapped around fallen trees. Cranford Park has 2 fallen trees which are attracting a lot of litter making it an eye sore and damaging the health of the river. We are going to be in thigh waders removing the rubbish. If we have enough time at the end, we will remove an invasive species, Himalayan Balsam from the river banks which causes the banks to crumble. If the plant was not removed, as a consequence, the river would be  wider and shallower, and not able to support as many species in Cranford Park. If you do not wish to go into the river, your help is needed with removing bags and pulling Himalayan Balsam.

The starting location for the event will be in the car park next to St Dunstan’s Church.

All Equipment is provided by Thames 21 but please wear suitable clothing for the weather conditions  Under 16′s are more than welcome as long as they have a responsible adult accompanying them.

If you need any more information please give me a phone call on the number below.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Best regards,

Billy
