Thamesmead is home to a nature reserve known as Tump 53. This is a long standing feature of the region but had seen a lot of neglect over recent years. Last autumn it was a candidate in The People’s Millions and secured considerable funding for an overhaul and revamp after a successful campaign and public vote. Teresa Pearce, among others, was pleased to see the enthusiasm behind the campaign to get Thamesmead to the top of the list.
Now, things are ramping up and there’s to be an open day (well, afternoon) on 12th April at the site. I’m not in the area that weekend, but if anyone wants to write it up for me I’d be interested to hear how it goes.
