Thornton Heath is very fortunate to have its own, sometimes forgotten, river.

The Friends of Thornton Heath Rec are inviting the community to have their say on a long term plan to put the cleaning of the Brook on a more formal footing.

Groups in Selhurst and Norbury, which the river also runs through, have been invited to attend a meeting on Thursday February 1, at 7pm at Endeavour Scout Halls, 273 Norbury Crescent.

FOTHR hopes that all three areas can unite together to offer support to organise their own waterway clear ups.

Three events were held in The Rec in 2017 and had fantastic support from the community. This will continue in 2018 with a date announced shortly.
