Litter Picking Stanwell Park this Saturday!

Wellingborough Eco Group & Wellie Wombles

This Month’s Two Hour Tidy Up takes place on this Saturday (25th May) at Stanwell Park. We will be setting up our Recycling Station on the grass at the park entrance on Wordsworth Road from 9:30, for litter picking between 10 and 12. We will be tidying up the park and the surrounding area.

Join us for our monthly Two Hour Tidy Up!

This location has been chosen by Freddie because we have not been to this park for ages. As a group we have tidied up this area last June, but unfortunately due to some messy people there’s a lot to do. It could be hot, so free refreshments will be available.

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. Join in, bring your friends and family, ALL WELCOME!

Broad Green Area Litter Picked!

Massive thank you to the 27 litter heroes that joined us for a Two Hour Tidy Up on Broad Green this morning. We litter picked 52 bags full litter and two wheel hubs from Broad Green and the surrounding streets!

On the last Saturday of every month, Wellingborough Eco Group normally carries out a two hour tidy up with Wellie Wombles. This time we chose a location that we haven’t litter picked before with an eye to have a meet up afterwards; and what finer place to do so than at The Queen’s Head, where a dozen of us celebrated the work we had done and Christmas with a pint or a coffee.

Thank you Sue, Mary and Aoife, Freddie and Georgina, Jonathan and Billy, Kate F, Lucy, Sister Pender and Sister Dampt, Craig, Carl, Luke, Riley, Mason, Oscar, Clare, Donna and Gayle, Kate Mc K, Niall, Rapheal and Deborah, Gill and Bob, and Pol for all your hard work this morning! Thank you to the neighbour who bought us drinks and everyone who came and said thank you at our recycling station too. Thank you also to North Northants Council who will take away all the litter we picked.

It was a bit wet and windy but good to see friends old and new, and some lovely families joining us both on the litter pick and in the pub. Thank you all for your support, see you at the next Two Hour Tidy Up!

Tree Planting at Kilborn Park now on 2nd December!

All welcome, we would like everyone like to come and plant trees! You will need to bring our own spades and dress for the weather.

After a successful planting session last year in Castlefields (see header picture) this year the planting location is going to be Kilborn park in Wellingborough (see map) and this time we are planting lots more trees! We will have tea and coffee available, plus hand washing facilities. Meet at our Tree Planting Station on the corner of Kilborn Road.

Do join us to plant trees in Kilborn Park on Saturday 2nd December from 9am til 12!

We have 400 trees and will start planting these in Kilborn Park on the 18th November. We will have to see how the planting goes to see if we have any to put elsewhere, the spare trees will join others at our tree nursery on our Community Allotment and heeled in.

The trees are a mixture of hawthorn, dogwood, wild cherry, silver birch, rowan and hazel. The trees will be planted in an area of the park on the slope near Kilborn Close and along Kilborn Road. Do join us to plant trees!
