DWP staff rally to the Thames21 Cray project again & RMS Helping Hands next week.

Dear All

DWP staff rally to the Thames21 Cray project again.

In recent weeks staff from local DWP centres have again joined our project and ‘got stuck in’: last month four staff members made a difference and boosted the team to remove a rubbish ‘log jam’ on the Cray at Crayford. This is a reoccurring problem and local volunteers are welcome.

This week they sent volunteers for preparations for next Friday’s big bash on the Veolia Chalk Stream Enhancements at Foots Cray Meadows. We are setting a corporate group a challenging day completing further bank revetment (see below). My ongoing thanks to DWP staff for their support and today’s invaluable help sourcing materials for this stage of our project.
