Thames21 media notice

DATE: Tuesday 2 March. TIME: 0800 – 10:30

Staff volunteers from major supermarket retailers will be joining Thames21’s volunteers to help remove plastic bag litter from the foreshore at the Isle of Dogs, East London, on Tuesday 2 March.

This will mark the start of Thames21’s ‘Deep Clean’ two day event on the lowest daytime tide for five years in London. Hundreds of volunteers are expected to help clean-up four foreshore locations of the River Thames over two days. Large expanses of foreshore will be exposed, revealing some of London’s worse affected locations for litter.

Cameras welcome. Photographers/reporters are advised to wear old clothes as the site can be very muddy. Boots will be provided.

LOCATION: Newcastle Draw Dock, off Saunders Ness Road, Isle of Dogs, E14 3EA.
