The Kew Society launched a trial ‘Thames Towpath Clearance’ initiative to kick start Kew towpath clearance plans to help manage vegetation growth and build up of litter along the River Thames ‘grot spots’
Members worked under the seasoned guidance of Becky Law from The Thames Landscape Strategy for a few hours to help improve the appearance of the riverside and open up views along the riverbank.
We also noted sites for installation of benches at viewpoints along the riverside and future improvements that could be easily addressed at future volunteer get-togethers.
Look out for our next planned ‘grotbuster’ session and do come along to help and learn more about the best ways to manage the riverside – all you need are sturdy shoes, gardening gloves ad a sense of adventure – it is great fun!
