Stamford Bridge,YO41 1DL

23:00

Yesterday was cold and threatened rain on more than one occasion but thankfully it kept dry for our litter picking morning. Liz and I cleared rubbish from under the viaduct once again (bit of a hot spot) and followed the river down to Low Catton. We were stopped a couple of times by dog walkers and drivers passing by who offered support and hopes of joining us next month. We desperately need more volunteers even if it's just for half an hour. Big thanks to Liz for helping clear a popular stretch of the river bank this month, Liz can be seen on our front page sporting our new 'Stop The Drop' high viz vests..

The Friends of Mile End Park
We litter pick Mile End Park, Tower Hamlets on the second Sunday of every month. We meet at 10am by the Art Pavilion which is by Clinton Road and just off Grove Road. We generally do a couple of hours. We can\'t do the whole park in two hours so we generally head north one month and south the next. Litter pickers, gloves, plastic litter bags, and hoops for the bags are supplied. We collapse in a heap at the end in The Coffee Room afterwards and reward ourselves with cake and coffee, and a good old chit chat.
