Thames 21, the independent charity dedicated to improving London’s rivers and canals, is inviting hardy Fulham folk to don their wellies and join a sunset walk along the Thames foreshore on Tuesday, 26 September.
The walk will begin at Philpot Square, on Carnwath Road opposite Thames Tideway’s project office, at 6pm and the charity says, “ We will be setting off at 18:15pm so don’t be late!
“The walk will be casual and slow-paced allowing everyone to take in the river space around them.
“This is a great opportunity to find your local access point to the River Thames, explore the foreshore, and make new friends. Everyone is welcome.”
Thames 21 does warn however that the foreshore is very muddy, so walkers should wear appropriate footwear - either wellies or sturdy boots.
The walk is free to join but those wishing to join are asked to book in advance here.
The charity says around 7,000 volunteers every year take part in walks, clean-ups and other events around our rivers and canals. You can find our more about its work on its website.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
