Litter Picking Hardwick Road Woods

WELLINGBOROUGH ECO GROUP AND WELLIE WOMBLES

Massive T H A N K Y O U to the 18 litter heroes who joined our special Wellie Womble clearance of a fly tipping hotspot this morning. Regular Wombles were joined by members of Wellingborough Eco Group and the Gleneagles Community Group to clear the woods on Hardwick Road between the A509 and Hardwick Village.

Over 60 bags of litter were collected, plus a few wheels, carpets and even a table. Considering this area had already been worked on a week ago by Wellingborough Norse, who said that they had cleared all the rubbish, there was a huge amount left from that, that had had dumped compost put on top of it.

Thank you to Georgina and Freddie, Jonathan, Dominic, Roxanna and Justina, Su B and Sue E, Michelle, Carol Trina and Peter, John, Catherine, Kate, Niall, Glen and Hazel for making such a difference in just two hours! Thank you also to all the people that stopped to thank us for doing this 🙂

Next Two Hour Tidy Up will take place in two weeks on Saturday 26th June, usual time 10-12, location to be announce, keep an eye on Wellingborough Eco Group or Wellie Wombles groups for updates…

Rakes, litter pickers, hi-vis vests and hoops provided, please bring your own gloves, to clear the site so nature can enjoy these woods again. Setting up from 9:30 to start litter-picking at 10 until 12.
