Big clean as Thames hits five year low

Luke Walsh in The Thames will fall to a five year low next month giving volunteers and ideal opportunity to pick up rubbish. Thames21, the London waterways charity, is calling for 800 volunteers to join them to give the River Thames a 'deep clean'.

Vast expanses of river are normally underwater but will be uncovered for a brief period each morning of March 2 and 3. Across four London sites, Thames21 will provide all equipment, support and guidance necessary to help volunteers make a practical improvement to London's environment. Thames21 river programmes manager, Chris Coode, said: "We're expecting hundreds of volunteers to join in and help make practical improvements to London's foreshores.

"These environments are often seen as abandoned spaces that damage some of London's greatest views instead of the most unique and fascinating open spaces London has to offer. Please join us and help make a lasting difference. "Volunteers are invited to do as much or as little as they are willing to and are advised to wear old clothes. Boots and gloves will be provided."….
