Community clean up of Wickham Mews

Lewisham Council officer Colin Sandiford is organising a community clean-up of Wickham Mews on June 23rd as part of the P&G Capital Clean-Up, a partnership with the Mayor of London's office. The event will take place on June 23rd.

Work will involve clearing the pathways, litter picking, cutting back overgrown vegetation and removing graffiti & flyposting. No experience is necessary as full training and supervision will be given on the day. Equipment and refreshments will be provided. Please register your attendance at this event in advance here.

Sandiford adds:

We'd also be happy to help organise any other local clean-ups if residents nominate any other local areas. We'll  provide the necessary equipment and the removal of bags after the clean up.

Will Boris himself turn up?

I seem to recall last time he helped out in Lewisham he got rather wet ;0)

That's a shame, I like to take a walk up there now and again and enjoy the wild flowers, the wildness, the overgrown feel. Bet it looks really dull and boring after.

Hope they don't get too carried away.I quite like the overgrown, natural vegetation along the mews and there some enormous, wild blackberry plants which fruit like mad in the autumn. Of course it'd be great to get rid of the fly tipped junk and graffiti...

Wild brambles are certainly worth keeping. For the first few years we were in London there were massive crops available for free from Eltham Churchyard before the "Friends" cleared it all. Why Nunhead Cemetery remains such a magical place.

Yeah, there's a tendency in London to over tidy nature and parkland.... City folk tend to regard rambling vegetation as messy and in need of a cut back...

This is an event to watch out for. The mission may be hard, but together, I’m confident that this project can turn out to be a success. Also, if volunteering is allowed, and if many will participate, the outcome can be better. You guys rock! I hope everyone will also reduce, reuse, and recycle! =)

It's a shame that this is the same day as the Hilly Fields summer fair.

I've registered but didn't see any times; hoping that the cleanup will start early enough in the morning to allow us to get to the fair too.

It looks like it starts at 10am Sally.
