Volunteers brave cold weather to keep Wanstead Park safe and tidy


Volunteer litter pickers braved the cold December weather to help keep Wanstead Park tidy.

“We have litter-picked in snow, rain and sun, but never before in freezing fog! The seven volunteers at our December event had a good haul, including a lethal carving knife and a frozen cushion. We also sold £40 worth of knitted Santas and angels and several books and cards,” said Gill James of the Friends of Wanstead Parklands.

The group’s first litter pick of 2023 will take place on 8 January from 11am (meet at the Temple).
