Wellie Wombles is a new group from Wellingborough Eco Group, started on Facebook by Freddie Harris in February, as part of Northants Litter Wombles. Both groups have been set up to encourage people to litter pick, and to get them to share photos with each other of what they have picked.
Wellie Wombles are individual litter pickers who, like the TV Characters, go Wombling free tidying up after the everyday people. We do suggest that you start near where you live but you can litter pick whenever you want to, and pretty much wherever you want to. As a group we simply offer you help, supplies and guidance, plus give you the chance to share photos with each other of what you have picked.
To help you, we have teamed up with Glamis Hall, Wellingborough Library and Wellingborough Norse to loan litter pickers, hi-vis and hoops, and to give away bags. You can also purchase a variety of pickers and hoops from us.
Tuesday Tidy Ups
If you would like to do some litter picking, we’re here to help you. Welllingborough Eco Group can lend you the equipment and give you the bags! Together with Wellie Wombles, we have teamed up with Glamis Hall and Wellingborough Norse to offer the loan of litter pickers, hi-vis, gloves and to give away bags.
