Whilst I was there, we found masks, gloves, cans, food wrappers and used syringes and just as we were wrapping up a couple of volunteers came along with a shopping trolley they’d fished out of a hedge!
As sad as it is that people litter, it has given way to a great group of people coming together weekly, getting out in the fresh air, and doing something good for their community. Every volunteer I chatted with said it was quite addictive and that it boosted their mental health – it even got some of them through the pandemic - and made them feel good!"
If you would like to join the group, you don’t have to sign up and you don’t have to commit to going every week, just follow their Facebook page and get in touch with Bob and the team.
You will be welcomed and provided with everything you need to become a womble and make a difference in your community.
