Rainham Marshes will be given a “much-needed” clean up next weekend as groups help clear litter from the nature reserve.
Rubbish from the Thames washes ashore at the wildlife centre every high tide, and now Thames21 and RSPB Gravesend will be getting stuck into it to give it a makeover.
Julia Makin, Thames River Watch co-ordinator, said it was need of the clean-up: “This is a fantastic opportunity to work with communities who live, work and play close to the banks of the tidal Thames.”
As well as collecting the litter, participants will be recording what they find as part of Thames21’s Thames River Watch project, which raise awareness of the environmental issues the river faces.
To take part, just turn up in suitable clothes for the outdoors. Wellies, gloves and tools will be provided. The event lasts from 9am-1pm and the meeting point is the Rainham Marshes nature reserve car park.

After the event there will be time for a bit of bird watching at the nature reserve.
