Stand Up Paddle Board Event and Towpath Litter Pick - Kew Bridge to Richmond – Friday 21 June

Get on Board 2019 takes place on Friday 21 June 2019 and runs from Kew Bridge to Richmond.

The main aim of Get on Board  is to highlight the problem of plastic pollution in our waterways. But it’s also about building on the success of  2018 and creating a great community event involving residents, businesses, workers and charities both on the water and on the towpath.

Time:          Briefings from 1:00 pm – on the water at 3:00 pm approx
