The event, which was organised by waterways charity Thames 21, involved 14 adults and eight children clearing out the pond and building bird boxes.

The day was part of the charity’s East London River Rescue project which has been carrying out regular sessions to regenerate the pond.

It is supported by Newham Council and Thames Water.
