Last month we launched Thames Lens, our annual photography competition supported by the Port of London Authority and we’ve received some great entries so far.

As part of our ambition to get as many people down to the river to explore what different communities along the Thames have to offer, we are thrilled to announce two very unique River Thames inspired Instameets this August.

Stand up Paddleboard Taster and Photo Opportunity at Kew Bridge with Active 360
Tuesday 22 August, 6.30pm

Stand-up Paddleboarding is a popular water sport, and residents of West London will find them commonplace along this stretch of river. If you’ve never SUP’d then this Instameet is the chance to get a taster session on behalf of Active 360 and then spend time snapping some shots of your fellow participants as they have a go at SUP either from the bank or in a canoe!

You'll also hear about the Plastic Oceans Festival, and how Active 360 have supported it through litter picks on the back of their paddle boards.
