Thames Water dumped raw sewage into the River Thames for over 70,000 hours in 2021 and at Henley alone for 400 hours.
.Pollluted River
Last year, MPs (including all the conservative MPs in Oxfordshire) voted down a House of Lords amendment to the Environment Act that would have imposed tougher targets on water companies.
New targets announced this year make sewage discharges legal, in some cases, until 2050.
The Henley Mermaids have been swimming the length of the Thames from Cricklade to Henley to raise awareness of sewage pollution and to raise money for Surfers Against Sewage.
Please join us on the riverbank for speakers including:
  • The Mayor of Henley,
  • Ash Smith of Windrush Against Sewage Pollution,
  • Mark Hull from the Oxford Rivers Improvement Network,
  • Fr Jeremy Taylor who will lead a prayer for the river,
  • and a host of others.

Refreshments, prizes for best costume and placard and the unveiling of a Blue Plaque "honouring" Thames Water's sewage dumping.
