The New River Renewal Campaign was started by local residents who live in Woodberry Down;

“We are local activists who want to see the New River brought up to the same high standards as the Woodberry Wetlands for the wildlife, and for people who want to enjoy the pleasure of walking by a river.  We want the New River to be an environment that is safe for wildlife and not contaminated by plastics, rubbish and junk.  We want regular clearing and maintenance of the whole length of the New River from Finsbury Park through to the Castle in Green Lanes".

It should not be the job of residents to continuously complain about and raise these issues - Thames Water and the London Boroughs of Hackney and Haringey must take responsibility for keeping the river and the riverbank a clean and safe environment for wildlife and for people who want to enjoy walking by the river”.
