The Great British Spring Clean


Wellingborough Town Council are joining Wellingborough Eco Group and Wellie Wombles again on our biggest litter pick of the year!

On the last Saturday of every month, Wellingborough Eco Group normally carries out a two hour tidy up with Wellie Wombles and numerous volunteers. This year we are returning to where we held this special litter pick last year a week earlier due to Easter, on Saturday 23rd March.

Do join us and Wellingborough Town Council for The Great British Spring Clean! This takes place on Saturday (23rd March) and we are litter picking the town centre!

We will set up a recycling station on Market Street from 9:30 to litter pick between 10am-12 midday. We have litter picking equipment, so everything apart from gloves is provided. North Northants Council will take away the litter we pick. As you can see by the map, we are also looking to tidy up Croyland Gardens and the streets surrounding the Town Centre, so there’s plenty to do and safe spaces for families to litter pick too!

Last year’s joint Great British Spring Clean litter pick was a huge success!

NEW – This year we are holding our first ever Heaviest Bag Competition.

It’s really simple, fill your bag with rubbish and we will weigh it and the winner gets a ‘Good Egg’ from Co-op Member Pioneer Wellingborough, Rushden and Higham Ferrers. Refreshments will also be available during and afterwards, do join in with friends old and new, bring your family. Everyone is welcome, see you on Saturday morning!
