Lions To Join Eco Spring Clean This Saturday!

Group litter picks can now re-start following the lifting of Covid restrictions and we are starting with The Great British Spring Clean on Saturday 29th May at Croyland Gardens and we have some exciting news, Lions will be joining us!

Wellingborough Lions are joining us for The Great British Spring Clean. The Lions are also trying to collect as many bags of litter as they can as part of their WASUP 2022 Challenge where they need to collect 2022 bags of rubbish by July 2022. In March they launched the WASUP 2022 Challenge. They have to collect as many bags of rubbish they can, but at least 2022 bags of litter before the start of the Commonwealth Games on 26th July 2022.

The main aim of the challenge is to educate people about the problems associated with single use plastics and to litter pick to reduce the amount of plastic waste in the environment. The other aim (which is close to my heart too) is to engage with local groups, serve the community whilst caring for our town and environment. There is more info on the website https://lions105cw.org.uk/environment but one of Lions key causes is environment.

Join us on Saturday 29th May in Croyland Gardens to tidy up

Wellingborough Eco Group, Wellie Wombles and Wellingborough Lions would love you to join us. Our Recycling Station will be in Morrisons Car Park from 9:30 with litter picking between 10am-12 midday, if not too windy, we’ll have a gazebo up, so you shouldn’t miss us! Everyone (without Covid-19 symptoms) is welcome.

To help us and keep us safe at this and future litter picks, Wellingborough Eco Group have purchased some litter pickers, hi-vis vests and safety equipment including road signs (pictured). Wellingborough Norse are also lending us equipment, so everything is provided but please bring your own gloves if you can. Social distancing is a must, hand santiser will be available, please do not come if you have covid-19 symptoms, but apart from that, ALL WELCOME!
