Help Keep The Wandle Clean In Merton

Local community clean-up on January 12

River Wandle clean up

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 January 12 in North Road, Wandle Meadow Nature Park, when volunteers will be playing their part in helping keep the water in the Wandle some of the cleanest in London.

The Wandle Trust tent will be set up on the north side of North Road. The nearest postcode is SW19 1XF. If you get lost on the way, call Emma on 07741 908 138.

The clean-up starts 11am and it is likely to go on for four hours. Tea, coffee and cake will be provided during a refreshment break at 1pm.

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
