Alleyway Clearances Needed


Marion and Chris litter picked the alleyways around Colwell Road on Tuesday, filling 12 bags! Not bad for a few ours on a Tuesday Tidy Up afternoon! Well done both!

If litter pickers are up for a challenge, there are loads more alleyways to clear up before they are gated off. These are located near to the Victoria Centre, so easy to walk to on our Tuesday Tidy Ups.

Have a look at the map, which shows where they are being installed. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Work starts installing the gates on Monday. Thanks all 🙂

Litter Picking Croyland Park

On Saturday morning, Wellingborough Eco Group litter picked Croyland Park between 10 and 12. This was our fourth monthly two hour tidy up and, as usual, it was on the last Saturday of the month. Our recycling station was based in the car park on Kingsway.

Thank you to our 22 litter pickers Liz, Sarah P, Emma, Billy, Jonathan, Moira, Bridget, Saloma, Suzanne, Claire, Aaron, Sarah C, Charlotte, Lucy, Nial, Inese, Julian, Catrina, Darragh, Jocelyn, Brian and Marion. Thank you Wellingborough Norse for lending us the equipment and for promptly collecting what we picked up.

As you will see in the following photos, we cleared up a huge amount of rubbish. The two van loads collected by our volunteers, included a motor bike, 3 shopping trolleys, 2 bicycles, a microwave, lots of tyres and lots of bottles, cans and crisp packets. Well done all!


We also planted an Sycamore tree in the park afterwards. The location for the tree was chosen by Claire, who started the Welly Trees campaign and lives nearby.

Litter Picking in January

On Saturday 25th January, Wellingborough Eco Group will be litter picking in Croyland Park. We will be setting up from 9:30 in the public car park on the Kingsway, to litter pick between 10 and 12. Look out for our recycling station and for our yellow hi-vis vests.

Wellingborough Norse have kindly agreed to lend us the equipment and to collect the rubbish. We will of course recycle as much as we can.

Our monthly two hour tidy up this month is to litter pick one of the most used parks in Wellingborough, and we plan to carry out litter picks on the last Saturday of every month. Litter pickers this month decide where the next location will be next month.
