On Saturday morning, Wellingborough Eco Group and Castle Fields Streetwatch litter picked Eastfield Park and Finedon Road Copse between 10 and 12. This was our fifth monthly two hour tidy up and, as usual, it was on the last Saturday of the month. Our recycling station was based at the entrance to Eastfield Park on Cross Road.
Thank you to our 16 litter pickers Sharen, Eileen, Emma and Billy, Jonathan, Suzanne and James, Glenn, Julie and Ruby, Nial, Marion, Carol, Jenny and Steve. Thank you also Wellingborough Norse for lending us the equipment and Dave for promptly collecting what we picked up.
As you will see in the following photos, we cleared up a huge amount of rubbish. The three van loads (1500kg!) collected by our volunteers, included a TV, 3 shopping trolleys, 2 mattresses, a knife, lots of tyres and lots of bottles, cans and crisp packets. Well done all!
Our next Two Hour Tidy Up will be in Croyland Gardens as part of Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean. We will be setting up from 9:30 to be litter picking between 10-12 on Saturday 28th March – see you there!
