Comment on this item on the Wimbledon

The Wandle Trust organises community clean-ups of the River Wandle on the second Sunday of every month, rotating between the boroughs of Merton, Sutton and Wandsworth.

The next clean-up is in Merton and it takes place on Sunday September 12 in Ravensbury Park, off Merton Road, when volunteers will be playing their part in helping keep the water in the Wandle some of the cleanest in London.

Details of the meeting point have yet to be finalised, but it will start at 11am and it is likely to go on for four hours, with the volunteers usually collecting at least two skips full of rubbish. This time the work will finish with a picnic - the Trust's annual way of thanking everyone involved.

Organisers supply a limited number of waders, plus protective gloves and First Aid facilities, but ask volunteers to bring their own wellies and wear old clothes. For further information about clean-ups, email or see
