On 4th August 2010 staff and members of the Commission, along with our PR team from Epoch,  spent the day volunteering on the Greenway near West Ham station. During the Olympic and Paralympic Games West Ham station and the Greenway will be one of the main entry points to the Olympic Park.  

The volunteering day was organised by the London Wildlife Trust, who have been working to transform the Greenway before the Games. You can find out more information about their work here.

Although interrupted by a downpour and thunderstorm, the day was spent building and putting up bird and bat boxes, litter picking, building loggeries, (for beetles) and insect hotels. Amongst the wildlife we came across a slow worm – pictured here.
