Wisbech Street Pride Group

Meetings take place bi-monthly 2pm at The Boathouse.

Wisbech Street Pride group are a very active group and work closely with the Wisbech In Bloom group.

Past projects have included creating flower beds in St Peter's Road car park,  tidying up a roundabout at the local hospital and the entrance to Chapel Road car park. The group have also worked with McDonalds to collect litter from the main road into Wisbech. The new franchise owner is keen to help the group keep Wisbech clean and has designated a member of the team to work in the town. The group have also planted a large number of bulbs in the park between Aldi and the Boathouse.

In 2013 a bird, bee and butterfly garden was created on the entrance to Somers Road car park. The group secured funding for an information board and sculpture.

In the same year, they also created a community herb garden at the Boathouse on an unused section of land. Apprentices from Delamores designed the look of the garden and plants were provided by the company.  The garden has significantly improved the street scene and was a great example of partnership working.

In 2017, at the annual celebration evening the group won the Best Clean Up for their Keep Britain Tidy's 'Great British Spring Clean' event in March. They were joined by members of staff from Tesco for a litter pick and were even filmed by local television company That's Cambridge TV.
