Plantlife in the Pool of London

A project to bring plantlife to the banks of the Thames was launched today by the Pool of London Partnership.

Intertidal hanging baskets for plantlife are due to appear along the riverside near the new City Hall near Tower Bridge following the appointment of Adopt-a-River Project Officer Gareth Thomas.

The aquatic plants, watered by the tidal Thames, is just part of the brief which should see a widening of activities in the Pool of London to include advising local businesses on better litter management.

Gareth Thomas is based at Walbrook Wharf, directly opposite the Anchor pub, and funded by the Pool of London Partnership.

PLP Director Linda Houston says: "With river, foreshore and River Path making up 45% of the Pool of London area it is essential that they are cleaned, improved, maintained and more use made of them."
