Another CITO event on Wimbledon Common
Cache In Trash Out is an ongoing environmental initiative supported by the worldwide geocaching community. Through these volunteer efforts, we preserve the natural beauty of our outdoor resources.
Geocachers host Cache In Trash Out events in their local area. Together, we make an enormous positive impact. Did I mention we get to wear WADERS again for this one.
Wombling in Waders!
The Head Ranger has contacted me and asked if we could help clear the Beverley Brook of rubbish again. This area of the common is quite quiet, so can suffer from a lot of rubbish accumulation. Knowing how much the geocaching community loves to deploy it's specialist equipment, I agreed to host this event. This event will be to finish off the work supplement the grounds work the rangers have been doing to remove the bank planks and letting the river run free!
We will meet at 11am at the given coordinates for a chat and the all important health and safety instructions, before talking a walk down into the Brook, please aware the works will not taking at GZ so any late arrivals will need to find us by walking along the river until you hear the laughing...
We will spend a couple of hours clearing the Brook of rubbish we should be finished by 1.30pm. This event has a higher risk associated with it and the need for all attendees to bring their own specialist equipment, and this is reflected that in the d/t rating.
While it is appreciated if people of all ages volunteer to help at this event, children under the age of 18 must be supervised by an adult at all times, as the Rangers and organisers insist that this event and general litter picking is carried out at your own risk and neither they or Groundspeak can take any responsibility for any accidents or injuries that may occur as result of this activity.
