Friends of Belair Park reproduce this e-mail from Helen Spring, organiser of the Effra Walk:
I hope you all enjoyed the walk last Sunday and didn’t wilt too much along the way – what weather we had! Special thanks to Martin Knight for his time and effort in leading the walk and also to London Wildlife Trust volunteer Chris for giving some info about the work that’s been done to restore the Ambrook (one of the Effra’s tributaries) in Sydenham Hill Woods.
It would be a great help if you could fill in this quick online survey (only 8 questions and mostly multiple choice!), please find the link below. As this is a research project we are looking to learn from these activities in order to make the Lost Effra project a real success and run more environmental projects in the local area and beyond! It really shouldn’t take long at all and would be a huge help – thank you!

I will keep you posted about other Effra themed events this year, (please let me know if you would like to removed from the mailing list). For example there is a screening of a film called Lost Rivers at Greenwich Picturehouse, 7pm on Friday 6th June. It is being shown as part of the UK Green Film Festival, in association with Friends of the Earth. Special guest speakers including the film’s director Caroline Bacle, Roy Stephenson (Head of Archaeological Collections and Archive at the Museum of London), Tom Bolton (author of London’s Lost Rivers; a Walker’s Guide), and myself talking about the Lost Effra project and what we are doing to help minimize the risk created by having one of London’s lost rivers beneath our feet.

Thanks again for coming along to the walk, I hope you enjoyed it and remember to look out for our picture on the Dulwich festival website that Fabian the photographer took at the beginning of the walk!
All the best,
