Creek Know-how – Saturday 16th July 2022

It's London Rivers Week! Join us to find out more about your local river.

Developing on our popular weekend walks, Creek Know-how features in-depth information about tides, the local historical context, and more. This activity aims to provide further opportunity for understanding the local area and to help people to interact with Deptford Creek.

Great North Wood Festival Saturday 18 June

The Festival of the Great North Wood will be a celebration of the Wood’s vast history and wildlife with a chance to learn more about why it’s so special. Join a guided walk and find out about local birds, pond life, and butterflies. Witness a spectacular falconry display, a giant interactive bubble show, or get stuck into the games museum. There will be plenty of activities for all the family including face painting, crafts, and music.

Come on an Outfall Safari and help us raise awareness about river pollution!

It is five years since we ran our first Outfall Safari along the Ravensbourne river catchment and it’s time to run another health check on our rivers. This is an opportunity for volunteers from Keston to Deptford, from Eltham to Sydenham, to join us and help identify pollution hotspots and raise public awareness around drainage misconnections that can harm our rivers.

Friends of Blythe Hill Fields Social

We know so many people absolutely loved the successful 2021 festival, it was extremely popular and so much fun! Perhaps you browsed the stalls, kept the kids busy with the funfair and woodland stage or just soaked up the atmosphere listening to the live music on the main stage? It was an amazing event and we'd like it to happen again! However, our wonderful annual festival is in danger of not running this year as we're very low on volunteers. We also need a passionate secretary to help with the general admin throughout the year.
