Join the Annual Thames Draw Off Riverbed Litter Pick, Tuesday 1st November

Join Be Richmond for our annual litter pick on the Thames riverbed, in conjunction with local environmental charity Habitats & Heritage, on Tuesday 1st November.

In the autumn, the locks either side of Richmond are closed for maintenance and the water level drops, allowing us to clear plastic and other litter from the riverbed.

It’s a great opportunity to get your team together, get a bit muddy, and do some good for Richmond. We provide the litter grabbers and waste sacks and arrange for the waste to be removed and recycled (nothing goes to landfill). You bring the wellies and the energy!

Places are offered to employees of businesses based in Richmond and must be booked in advance.

Please wear old clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. Wellies or sturdy boots/shoes are essential, as the towpath and foreshore will be slippery. Bring gardening gloves if you have them, but we do have some spare pairs to lend.

We will run two sessions - one in the morning (10am - 12noon) and one in the aftenoon (12noon - 2pm). Please book you spaces using the links below:

MORNING SESSION 10AM

AFTERNOON SESSION 12NOON
