Tidy Eagle Ponds: Update

image1 Good news on our campaign to clean up Eagle Pond. The City of London has said it will clean up the pond – date to be decided, and install new signs which say “don’t feed the ducks bread” as they harm them. Thanks to all those who helped out. This is a small success, but one that means we can help make our area just a little better.

George Green Litter Pick Success

litter

litterThanks to local residents and community groups who took part in the March litter pick on George Green and the surrounding area.

Local residents were so fed up with the state of Wanstead, we decided to take matters into our own hands and clean the place up.

One Saturday morning in late march we collected over 40 bags of litter with the help of 20 volunteers. So successful was the event that we have decided to have these once every other month. The next event will be held on Saturday 6th May – please bring gloves and black sacks!
