General Meeting

We are inviting registered members of Wellingborough Eco Group and members of our social media groups to a General Meeting on Tuesday 4th May at 7:30pm, we have lots to discuss and we want you to decide what we do next!

We will be looking at our Zoom events, and looking at whether in person events would be better. We will be looking using the Victoria Centre for some of our events and continuing our partnership with Glamis Hall for others. We could host a Wellingborough Eco Festival, if enough members wish to support it. We will look at what activities to do for kids with our new with group, Wellie Acorns.

We will also get a Community Allotment update, decide when our litter picking ‘Two Hour Tidy Ups’ re-start and we will be looking at what the amazing things that Wellie Wombles have been up to, plus we hope to elect Freddie Harris as our Litter Picking Secretary on our committee so he can act on behalf of the group in his correspondence with local companies and services, plus lead on our litter picking activities.

To be able to vote Freddie in, please do register as a member at https://wellingboroughecogroup.org.uk/eco/join-us/ (it’s free and it helps us)

Do join us on Zoom for our General Meeting on Tuesday 4th May at 7:30pm via this link https://zoom.us/j/98819061176

Lovely afternoon at the Community Allotment today, really busy with lovely people! Thank you to Simon Turner and Jamie Brady (Welcome to Wombledon) for your help building our gazebo, roof to do when less windy…

Thank you Michael Young and your son from Allotment Shack for donating and bringing up a selection of onions, garlic and shallots to be planted at the Community Allotment .

Thank you Claire Louise’s and Carl for visiting and giving some of our Welly Trees a home and thank you Kate McKeown for coming and picking up a couple of raspberry bushes.

Plus thank you Marion Turner-Hawes and Karon Turner-Hawes for dropping off Wellingborough Swap Shop items from this morning’s Saturday Swap Shop, and for looking to join in with us in the near future.

Also, on Tuesday we held our first working party which was fun. Thank you Judy Sumner and the kids for your help with the raspberry bushes and of course the Easter Egg Hunt!
