Croydon Environmental Fair 2018 – Saturday 9th June, 11am – 5pm – Wandle Park
This has appeared in the events brochure available in the cafe scheduled for the 27th May. The decision to cancel is because the local military academy students will be doing a river clean up as part of London Rivers Week on the 25th June instead. By leaving it a month it means that there will be more time for litter to build up and give them plenty to collect. Please accept the volunteer and learning officer’s apologies for any disappointment caused.
The rescheduled date for the Keep Britain Tidy Spring Clean is Sunday 25th March.
Join us between 10am and 4pm by the Waddon New Road footbridge over the railway.
