Ravensbourne Residents Association (RRA) Organised Litter-Picks
Working singly or in pairs we are restarting our organised litter picking sessions. The aim is to cover as many streets as possible on our patch. All the rubbish collected needs to come back to the meeting point where it is double bagged and taken by car to the nearest council recycling centre.
We provide rubbish sacks and litter picking equipment. All you need bring is your own protective gloves. Volunteers must always follow government Covid19 guidelines.
This is a good opportunity to get to know other residents who share similar concerns and want to take positive action helping to keep our streets clean.
Saturday 3rd April 11.00am – Meeting at the junction of Crantock Road and Thornsbeach Road.
Saturday 24th April 11.00am – Meeting at the entrance to Forster Park at the top of Thornsbeach Road.

Locals Dumping Bags of General Waste
Two men have been seen on foot regularly dumping black sacks of domestic rubbish in Daneby Road. The rubbish consists of takeaway containers, food waste and empty drink bottles. If anybody can help identify the frequent dumpers, please get in contact.
How to Improve your Front Garden for Wildlife
Now is a good time to think about improving your front garden. It can even be done with the smallest of front gardens. Think about lifting some of the slabs or building a raised bed. Creating these planting areas will benefit small creatures and pollinators and make the space more attractive at the same time.
Herbs are easy to grow and are inexpensive to buy as small plants or grow from seed or cuttings.
My personal favourites are Lavender, Rosemary and Thyme.
When the pavement is full please use the bin
