Tired of looking at a filthy canal and towpath? Now’s your chance to make a difference and get stuck in with Poplar Union’s monthly litterpicks!

Working in partnership with Moo Canoes and the Friends of the Cut, these events aim to tackle litter both on and off the water. With canoes and litter-picking equipment freely available at every event, the only thing missing is you!

All of these events are run by highly-experienced litterpick leaders and water-based litterpicking is organised and supervised by the lovely Moo Canoes crew. Don’t worry if you’ve never canoed before – their boats are very beginner-friendly and they’ll show you the ropes.

Please be aware that on-water spaces are limited. We endeavour to ensure that all volunteers get a go in the canoes over the course of each event, but there’s also plenty of litterpicking work to be done along the towpath while you’re waiting.

What to bring:

Dress for conditions on the day and bring along a change of clothes and a warm layer/hat, just in case. There are changing and washing facilities available at Poplar Union. We will provide all other equipment along with hot drinks and biscuits (it can be thirsty work!)

Where to meet:

The meeting point for all Moo Canoes sessions is:

Poplar Union, 2 Cotall Street, Poplar, E14 6TL
