More volunteers and bins needed in fox war


Volunteers are collecting so much rubbish we are overfilling the bins, proving that Lewisham council needs to put in more bins. We only started a week ago.

On Saturday night (22 August), the single bin we use was already full from Friday and the cafe’s rubbish from Saturday. (more…)

Volunteers empty bins before foxes spread rubbish

rubbish on trolleys

Morning park users will have seen rubbish strewn by foxes who pull bagged waste from open bins in search for food scraps. The first volunteers have begun emptying the bins just before dark to try to prevent this. More volunteers are needed.

Saturday 15 August was the first night. Two volunteers started at the Bowling Green and cleared the bins up all the way along Cliffview and Vicars Hill to the café and the play area. On the first night we managed to empty 12 bins. (more…)
