About six years ago I started building sand sculptures on the river bank. Occasionally the tide left lots of litter behind as it went out and I took it upon myself to clean up the beach litter and make the area more tidy. These photographs show how the beach has gotten much smaller.
I aim to improve the beach and restore it to its former glory. Had I known that cleaning up the litter from the beach would result in the sand disappearing then I wouldn’t have bothered.
If we get 300 tonnes of river sand dropped into the corner, then it will not get dispersed up and down the river as the concrete corner stops and current flowing in this area. The sand will stay situated right by Gabrials Wharf to be enjoyed by the good people of London.
This video shows that when I clean up the beach litter a small amount of the sand will also be removed.
