St. James Helps Clean the Thames

IMG_0500[1]A team from St. James Westminster joined the Thames River Clean-up and London’s Clean and Green on April 23. It was a beautiful spring day as the group gathered at Carfrae Park to meet up with the organizers from the Old South Community Organization.

We donned our gloves, collected a bag, and set to work. We found lots of litter, glass, and even a broom. We also found used needles and other drug supplies, which were put in a “sharps”┬ácontainer and disposed of safely and properly. We had a great time contributing to our community, and the Thames River is just a bit cleaner because of our efforts.
