The GAGB has been contacted by Thames21 as they are keen to work with geocachers in the London area with regard CITO events.

I have been in touch with Judith and she is happy for me to pass on her contact details:

Hi London Geocachers!

I am wondering if you would be interested in some CITO events in 2012 in London.

Some geocachers came to a Thames21 clean up event in 2010 and we have sites all over London where groups can get involved.

I read on the main website about the 10th Annual Cache In Trash Out Weekend which is scheduled for April 21st and 22nd, 2012.

Do you already have CITO events planned in London? If not I would be more than happy to get one organised.

Please let me know what you think and if you need more information.
