River Cray Project

Dear All

The river Cray project continued to bask in the autumn sunshine this week with two clean up events for the lower Cray on Tuesday and Thursday. They involved a number of office workers enjoying a day out but contributing with a haul of general rubbish and bags of recyclables (Drinks cans and bottles) from Waterside Gardens Crayford and Byway 105 Barnes Cray respectively.

Wednesday was our day at the Foots Cray Meadows River habitat enhancement working with our partners from NWKCP we created another section of marginal bank.

We were very well represented at last night’s Thames21 AGM in the City of London’s Guildhall my thanks to those who attended.

This coming week’s schedule has a time change and a new activity it is:

Tuesday we shall be at the Depot at Barnes Cray from 12noon this is a later time to previously advertise.

Wednesday I would appreciate some help moving our boat from Hall Place to the depot please contact me we shall be meeting at Hall Place at 1030 we will also be assessing a project to improve the wildlife habitat along the river bank which we cleared in June.

Thursday we have six volunteers already line up for the in Stream Enhancements at Foots Cray Meadows on Wednesday (Full details on the events page of the website)

Next Saturday 27th your support is very much needed for the Big Challenge Day for the National Citizens Service when we again lead in a variety of environmental work a large group of young people at Foots Cray Meadows. Please contact me for details.
