Lead Your Community in Waterway Improvements, Day 1- Accredited Training with Thames21

February 9 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

If you love your local waterways and want to join with other people to make them even better, sign on for our 2-day accredited ‘Leading a Waterway Clean Up’ training!

Thames21 are committed to enabling communities to care for their local waterway. As part of the Roundmoor Ditch Enhancement project we are providing free training to local residents and other people who are keen to see what improvements have been done at this site and take practical skills away to be River Keepers in their own area.

Leading a Clean Up is much more than picking up litter.

This is Day 1 of the 2-day course, designed to help you build the knowledge, confidence and skills to lead safe, effective and fun waterway improvement events. You will learn to look out for what tasks a group of volunteers can do which will really make a difference.

By the end of Day 1, you will be able to plan your own event and show that you can select an appropriate site, spot hazards, ensure health and safety, organise tasks and equipment, and publicise your event.

There is no obligation to run events once you have taken this course.  Many people take it simply for the learning experience.  But others do go on to lead their own events with our support.  Our trainees have been involved in some exciting work over the years!

You will be provided with a workbook and other materials that will support your learning.

Please contact Poppy on poppy.flint@thames21.org.uk if you would like more information
