The Friends of Foots Cray Meadows are an Activity driven organisation. Participation by our members and the public are crucial to the success of our projects.
Nemo To Help Connect Children To Their Rivers
On Thursday 30th May families are invited to share in a special all-ages activity day and celebration on the River Cray with Thames21, Disney, London Borough of Bexley and Friends of Foots Cray Meadows.
The day will encourage children to see the link between rivers and oceans and will be supported with a range of Finding Nemo-themed river-based activities, including: river dipping, rock painting, a scavenger hunt, mini raft racing and ‘Fish Olympics’.
The family friendly half-term event celebrates the release of Disney Pixar’s Finding Nemo 3D on Blu-ray and DVD while educating children about the need to protect their rivers and oceans for fish and wildlife such as Nemo.
Thames21 Education Coordinator Joanne Bradley said: “We are delighted to be working with Disney to help bring rivers and nature closer to London families. Foots Cray Meadows is an ideal place for children to learn about the river system in a safe and fun way. Please do join us!”
Event details: Thursday 30th May, 10am – 2pm, Foots Cray Meadows, meeting at the information centre, which is a short walk from the Rectory Lane car park

‘Finding Nemo’ follows the epic journey of a clownfish named Marlin (voiced by ALBERT BROOKS) and his young son Nemo (ALEXANDER GOULD) who become separated in the Great Barrier Reef when Nemo is unexpectedly taken far from his ocean home to a fish tank in a dentist’s office. Buoyed by the companionship of Dory (ELLEN DEGENERES), a friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish, Marlin embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of a momentous effort to rescue his son. Teeming with memorable comedic characters and heartfelt emotion, this awe-inspiring adventure was first released in cinemas in 2003 and won an Oscar® for ‘Best Animated Feature Film’ Now in immersive 3D, ‘Finding Nemo’ has been restored in stunning high definition for families and fans to dive even deeper into this heart-warming story in their own homes.
The AGM will be held on Tuesday 25th June 2013 in the Information Centre at 7pm Full details and Documents will be sent to members by e mail.
