A clean, green start to the New Year in Wimblington

Want to try something new in 2018? How about getting active and socialising while also making a difference to your local community? Wimblington residents can do just that by joining a Street Pride litter pick in the village on Saturday, January 6.

Residents young and old are invited to join the event and help give the streets a New Year clean and tidy. It will also be a chance to see if there's enough interest in the village to launch the district's 15th volunteer Street Pride group.

Coordinated by Fenland District Council's Street Pride team, the number of Street Pride volunteers continues to grow, with 14 groups now meeting regularly to help improve their local area and open spaces.

Councillor Peter Murphy, the council's Portfolio Holder for the Environment, said: "Our Street Pride groups work alongside a number of In Bloom and Friends groups to help make Fenland a cleaner and greener place to live.

"More than 100 community events have been held this year, with many groups going above and beyond to enhance neglected areas. It would be great to see the Street Pride movement begin in Wimblington, and what better time to start that than in the New Year?"

Anyone wanting to join the community litter pick on Saturday, January 6, is asked to meet at the Parish Hall in Addison Road at 10am. Everyone is welcome and all equipment provided.
