Sunday 26th February – Get to know your local river

26th February 2023 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

INVITATION to residents in the Horn Park, Mottingham Lane, Dutch House area.
You may know the River Quaggy flows nearby, but how much do you really know about the river, its condition, wildlife, and how it can be improved?
A new local project aims to make more of the river as a local asset.
– Do you ever cross over the Sidcup Bypass from the Dutch House for exercise or to walk your dog(s) in the Great Meadow and Harmony Woods?
– Perhaps you would like to explore more of the area away from the busy local roads, perhaps beside the river?
– Have you seen or helped with improvements to the grassy bank along Mottingham Lane?
– You may have views about the local litter and fly-tipping including on the banks of the River Quaggy along Mottingham Lane.
For more on the idea and ways you can be involved see Thames 21’s https://www.thames21.org.uk/improving-rivers/quaggy-habitats-capel-manor-project/

And come to a quick ‘find out about’ session on:
– Saturday 25 February, 11.30am to 12 noon.
– Sunday 26 February, 11.30am to 12 noon.
Meet on the green space near the mini roundabout at the junction of Winn Road and Mottingham Lane, and opposite Capel Manor College.
The project aims to help residents to: 
– Know how the river and corridor can be improved along the stretch from Jevington Way / Westdean Avenue / Winn Road / Mottingham Lane to the A20 and Great Meadow.
– Help restore the river as a local natural asset – cleaner, with more wildlife, and better able to help with reducing flood risk.
