Reflections: Over 26K Raised For The RNLI

Last week we presented a cheque for £26,440.38 to the RNLI at the HQS Wellington to help pay for the construction of a new lifeboat station at Waterloo Bridge. The money was raised by the participants, partner organisations and promoters of the Reflections event that was part of Totally Thames in 2022.

London's Lost Village: Welcome To Bubbletown

‘Welcome To Bubbletown’ is a collaboration between Faraday School, Josh Knowles, and Thames Festival Trust as part of the London’s Lost Village project. In summer 2022 students at Faraday School learned about the history of their local area including Trinity Buoy Wharf, the East India Docks and Orchard Place. Reflecting on this, the students used recycled materials to create Bubbletown: a utopian fantasy world based on the principles of eco-engineering.
