This weekend, Thames21 are having a cleanup event at the section of Pymmes Brook next to Tanner’s Hall Allotment, which happens to be where I have my little plot. This is a great chance to get involved in cleaning up Edmonton and making it a nicer place to live.  And if you need any more convincing, hot drinks and snacks will be provided!

It’s only a couple of hours, and I’d probably only be at the allotment anyway, so I will definitely be there.  It would be great to see you too – post a comment if you think you’ll come!

I’ve put the full information from Thames21 below, and here’s their flyer (Word document), in case you live locally and would like to promote the event.

Love the Lea event

Pymmes Brook makeover

Saturday 19th November
10am – 12.30pm

Help Thames21 transform the Pymmes Brook, a major tributary of the River Lea, from a dumping ground into a healthy stream.  This is the first of many events to rid the river of unsightly junk and improve the quality of the water.  This morning of TLC will begin the journey.

We’ll be getting rid of junk like freezers, allowing the brook to flow again, then test the water for hidden nasties – the first step to improving the water quality.

We’ll provide boots and gloves, hot drinks and snacks!  Please be aware this event may be muddy so please wear appropriate old clothes.

Meet at Florin Court, off Tanners End Lane, Enfield N18.
