Restoring Enfield’s Rivers Event – Tanners End Lane, Rivers Action Day 19.04.2022

April 19 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm

Tanners End Lane River Action Day

Thames21 and Enfield Council are teaming up to deliver conservation and restoration events in Enfield, creating cleaner and healthier spaces for wildlife and people.


This event will be run in partnership with the Pymmes BrookERS.


Join us at Tanners End Lane where we will be holding a river clean-up to improve the health of the Pymmes Brook. 


The aim of this event is to remove harmful and unsightly rubbish from the Pymmes Brook river. We will be doing an in channel river clean-up, removing rubbish and litter. It is extremely beneficial to catch litter and rubbish before it leaves the upper catchment and enters into the Thames and the sea.


The Pymmes BrookERS is a river restoration community group, working to restore the Pymmes Brook and the Salmons Brook. Both run through Enfield, so we hope to run a number of partnership events over the coming months with this very active organisation. Come down and learn about their work first hand at our Tanners End Lane event. Use this link to view pictures from our January event.


Anyone is welcome to join us at this event and no experience or equipment is necessary 🙂


The section of the Pymmes Brook that runs below Tanners End Lane has a lot of potential as a nature area. It is a stretch of river where the Pymmes Brook flows through a large green space, surrounded by trees and shrub. However this area has been abused by a minority and is now quite heavily burdened by litter. Come down and join us for a River Action Day, see for yourselves and help make a difference! By catching this litter in the Pymmes Brook, we can stop it before it becomes harmful to life in the River Lea, the Thames and the ocean! Edmonton’s rivers need you.


To complete these tasks volunteers will be putting on waders and jumping in the shallow river, but there will also be lots of activities to do on the banks for people who don’t want to go into the water.


Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary. We provide all the tools, equipment and training so you can just turn up and get stuck in!
