Wormwood Scrubs

Wormwood Scrubs, known locally as The Scrubs, is an open space located in the north-eastern corner of the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham in west London. It is the largest open space in the Borough, at 80 ha (200 acres), and one of the largest areas of common land in London. A Capital Clean-up will be taking place at Wormwood Scrubs on Saturday May 19, from 10am to 2pm. Volunteers will be restoring the natural habitat, clearing and improving pathways and removing unsightly litter that threatens local wildlife.


Bishops Park is a park in Fulham south-west London. The park was opened in 1893, and is listed Grade II on the register of parks and gardens of special historic interest maintained by English Heritage.

In Hammersmith & Fulham, a clean-up will be taking place at Bishops Park and the local vicinity. Volunteers will work together to pick up litter in Bishops Park, Alphabet Streets and River Walk removing unsightly rubbish that threatens wildlife habitat. A central meeting point will be arranged and teams of litter pickers will commence from there.
