London Rivers Week 2024: Restoring the River Roding

June 25 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Welcome to London Rivers Week! This special occasion is dedicated to honoring London’s rivers and recognizing London as a river city. Join us in celebrating the wonderful aspects of our rivers, from their contributions to health and well-being to their role in cultural activities. Let’s embrace this opportunity to highlight the importance of rivers and all they bring to our city.

We will be doing restoration work on the River Roding in Wanstead Park by tackling invasive non-native species, specifically Himalayan balsam. Himalayan balsam out-competes other species for space, light, nutrients and pollinators thereby reducing native biodiversity along the river bank.

We are meeting at The Temple in Wanstead Park – Google maps link – at 10AM and finishing up at 2PM.

This is an event designed for the community, to engage the local public with the river and not for corporates. If you are interested in a bespoke corporate volunteer day, please visit our website
