See our current events

Join Thames21 to tidy up one of London's biggest litter hotspots - Newcastle Draw Dock on the Isle of Dogs. As well as cleaning the site, we will be leading a count to uncover where all the little is coming from. The event is part of our Thames River Watch Big Count, which involves a series of events at Newcastle Draw Dock to help us answer questions like:

  • Is the litter issue on the Thames getting better or worse?
  • Which types of litter are the most common?
  • How is the litter getting into the river (and how do we stop it)?

We would love you to come down and give a helping hand. If interested, drop us an email to [javascript protected email address] - or simply show up! This event involves accessing the Thames foreshore, the ground is muddy and uneven. We welcome everyone to join our events, and if you have any particular accessibility requirements please contact us in advance and we can give you further details about accessing the foreshore.
