Marina Clean-Ups Update from Living River Foundation

The January Blitz has been attended by volunteers from the Foundation, local residents and Chatham Marina berth holders. Four clean-ups were completed, while staff from a local business, Wards Security, helped the Foundation and Marina staff remove the boom sections ready for their winter refurb.

We found some interesting items, including a boomerang and a garage door remote!  There was a clear decrease in litter over the month. But when we returned to our monthly clean-ups, while the volume is much lower overall, some types of litter started to increase again, these include wristbands, clear and food wrappers.

The Monthly litter picks will resume in April, once the boom is relaunched and replaced. If you would like to join the events or other work in Chatham Maritime area please email
