Great job done by our 20 Litter Heroes today at Glamis Meadow and Wood. We collected 15 bags of litter, a green bin full of recycling, a car stereo and a bike! Lovely to see lots of children with their families. Thank you to Sabina, Artur and Ignas, Justyna, Dominic and Roxanne, Chris, Rachel, Andy, Anthony, Suzanne, Karen and Jenna, Niall, John and Tricia, Jane, Jonathan, Emma and Billy.
Our monthly two hour tidy up this month was to litter pick the Glamis Meadow and Wood, Wellingborough’s nature reserve! Wellingborough Norse kindly supplied the litter pickers and collected the rubbish we picked. Our recycling station was set up from 9:30 on the footpath from The Promenade (see aerial view) to carry out litter picking between 10am-12 midday.
Our monthly two hour tidy up this month takes place on Saturday 18th July and is to litter pick the Glamis Meadow and Wood, Wellingborough’s nature reserve! Wellingborough Norse have kindly offered to supply the litter pickers and to collect the rubbish we pick. All welcome!
Our recycling station will be setting up from 9:30 on the footpath from The Promenade (see last couple of photos) to carry out litter picking between 10am-12 midday. With so many different areas to tidy up this time, you can decide if you want to combat the mess in the woods or pick litter in the more family meadow.
We will be asking everyone who takes part to strictly adhere to social distancing of two metres, and for all to take their bags of litter to a collection point for Wellingborough Norse. This is an outdoor activity, gloves and hi-vis vests are to be worn, but face masks are not mandatory.
Here are a few photos of the meadow and wood, see you on Saturday:
Join Wellingborough’s inaugural Critical Mass on Friday 31st July. Everyone is welcome, including families with children, it is not a race, the idea is to stay in a big group. The route will not be too hilly or too long. Councillor Valerie Anslow will be at the back to make sure that everyone is safe and that no one is left behind.
Critical Mass happens in towns and cities all over the world on the last Friday of every month. It’s a cycling event in which everyone rides together as one big group. It is an opportunity to celebrate cycling but also to protest for change. Cycling needs to be elevated up in terms of its importance. For decades it has been ignored.
This is an event to celebrate cycling and to protest against the lack of action by the councils in terms of the emergency measures for active travel which should have been put in place. This include pop-up cycle lanes with wands. We shall be cycling around as a group reclaiming the street.
Meet at 6.30pm outside Castello Lounge and opposite The Hind Hotel. The cycle ride starts at 7pm. For further details see the event on Facebook at:
