My Arcadia! frontpiece


The Thames Landscape Strategy, working with its charity The Father Thames Trust has transformed the Arcadian Thames.  Just 25 years ago parks were derelict, views were blocked and long stretches of riverside were not open to the public.   Through our advocacy and project work all this has been turned around in a way that was not thought possible.

The Arcadian Thames may be one of the most iconic river landscapes in the world but there are new threats to the Arcadian Thames. Recent Government housing targets have increased significantly whilst the public funds to maintain our precious open spaces have been cut year-on-year. The peace and tranquillity of the Arcadian Thames is again under threat.  The pressure for development and change along the river is accelerating.  Never before has the need for the Thames Landscape Strategy partnership been more relevant.

As guardians of the Arcadian Thames, the TLS needs to continue its mission in bringing the potentially conflicting riparian owners, authorities and communities together to agree and deliver a better future for the riverside.  Historically the Thames Landscape Strategy has been funded through the public purse but recent Government savings have seen this source of money reduced significantly.  If the organisation is to continue its conservation, advocay and engagement work new sources of income have to be found.

My Arcadia! sets out to ensure a sustainable future for the Arcadian Thames by providing un-restricted funds for the Thames Landscape Strategy through a formal community, business and corporate giving programme.  By giving to My Arcadia! you can help support our work (through our charity The Father Thames Trust).
