A Westbrook Stream Clear will take place on Sunday 27th September, 2020.
Normally, we welcome volunteers to turn up to stream clears without pre-booking. However, due to Covid-safe working practices we are, for now, asking volunteers to let organisers know if they intend to come along. Please do this, by Friday 25th September, via the Contact page on this website or directly to the organiser.
Westbrook Stream Clears will resume on Sunday 30th August.

Thank you ever so much. We’re really looking forward to getting back to work.
We are hoping to resume some group stream clear work at the end of August 2020 (Sunday 30th August) and are currently working on how to do this safely. Details will be posted here as soon as available.
Many thanks for your interest and hope to see you soon!
The Friends of the Westbrook and Stonebridge Pond share this philosophy. One of the ways of we’ve been working to achieve this is by ‘Making Life Easier for Eels‘ which sets out the story of the Critically Endangered European eel and the actions the Friends of the Westbrook are taking to improve its chances.
Chart Mills was part of the local gunpowder industry’s Home Works and is the oldest in the area. It probably supplied powder for the Battles of Trafalgar and Waterloo and the Westbrook was integral to its function. The Faversham Society look after it and open it to the public. However, they are struggling with volunteers and have put out an appeal for help with opening Chart Mills. This is from their website:
Chart Mills Help – ROD MORLEY
We are so short of volunteers at the Chart Mills that we are in danger of being unable to open for the season.
Please – we need your help. Come along to our short meeting to find out what is involved. It will be in the Boston Room of the Fleur at 10.30am on Thursday, 26 March. Coffee and biscuits will be served.
A community group created to improve the environment of the Westbrook stream in Faversham.
