There will also be lots of information on our stall about our activities at ECO HUB, where you can find out more about us and how to get involved. Do join us and the many other organisations at the Victoria Centre this Saturday (29th) 11-3.

Litter Picking Victoria Area

Pick and treat – This month’s Two Hour Tidy Up is a bit spooky!

The litter pick takes place on this Saturday morning (29th October) and we are litter picking the Victoria Area. We will set up a recycling station outside the Victoria Centre from 9:30 to litter pick between 10am-12 midday. Fancy dress is optional, and there will be treats available for all!

This location has been chosen because we also have a stall at the One World Week Event at the Victoria Centre. As a group we have tidied up this area before, but unfortunately, it’s messy again so there’s plenty to do.

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, so everything is provided but please bring your own gloves if you can.

North Northants Council will take away the litter we pick, hand sanitiser will be available. We will be joined by Wellie Wombles and many other volunteers, so do join in, bring your friends and family, ALL WELCOME!
