Free Creek Walk on Thursday 27th May

If you've missed the Creek Walks organised by Creekside Centre because you're a bit strapped for cash, you may be interested in this opportunity, organised by Lewisham's Rivers and People Project. There's a low-tide wade through Deptford Creek this Thursday from 6-8pm and it's FREE. Meet at Creekside Education Centre, no need to book.

You'll notice that the Creekside Village development is not in these pictures which were taken last year in April. How times change! If you go on the walk you'll also be able to see how overshadowed the Creek now is by the Greenwich High Road development at the south end of the Creek, which also wasn't there last year. (The old boat in the picture below was removed because the developers deemed it an eyesore)...

If you're feeling a bit consciencious, there is also another opportunity to get down on the Creek for free on Saturday 5 June (10.30am-1.30pm) but the payback is you have to help clean up the Creek while you're there!

The Rivers and People Project is funded through Natural England and the Big Lottery's Access to Nature scheme, and is being delivered by Lewisham Council and the Creekside Education Trust. More information on the Lewisham website here.
Meanwhile, Creekside Centre's Summer programme can be found here.
