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.
To give you an idea of where Wombles go and what Wombles do, we have created a map to show you! Click on the ‘red stars’ to see Womble litter picks including photos, ‘blue birds’ to see group organised litter picks and ‘green recycling symbols’ to see where you can collect bags and borrow litter pickers from:
To add your litter pick to the map, join our group on Facebook, then post what you have picked including the location, number of bags and a photo. Join in at https://www.facebook.com/groups/welliewombles
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. Click here for a map and directions to Glamis Hall.
This service is available on Tuesdays from 4:00 until 8:00pm. Equipment and bags are to be collected from Glamis Hall, equipment is to be returned to Glamis Hall on the same day; and bags left for Wellingborough Norse by a public bin for collection.
We can also just supply the bags only, these are free! For those that want to keep their litter pickers, we sell simple ones for £3 each (also available at B&M for the same price) let us know on the form below what you want.
To borrow or buy some litter picking equipment or collect bags fill from us at Glamis Hall just turn up or reserve your equipment or bags by filling in the form below:
Before collecting your bags and/or equipment, please read the action plan and rules at https://wellingboroughecogroup.org.uk/eco/litter-picking/tuesday-tidy-ups/

Report Bag Locations
You can use our Bag Report form below to notify Wellingborough Norse and North Northants Council where you have left your bags from your litter pick; plus this will notify Northants Litter Wombles for their Litter Log. We will also receive an email from this form so that we can chase it up if needed. Click here to report your bags.
If you take your bags home or have had them collected, Northants Litter Wombles still want to record the number of bags collected in your area. You can do this by filling in this simple form at: http://bit.ly/NorthantsLitterWombles
