Get involved in The Big Help Out in Fenland
Thousands of organisations across the country are taking part in The Big Help Out to mark His Majesty The King's Coronation by doing something to support their local community.
Fenland's Street Pride groups, which work tirelessly year-round, to enhance the local environment in the district through litter picks and other projects will be among those taking part.
How about joining one of the special Coronation events to have a day out of the ordinary or to see if it's something you might like to do again?
Or if there's not one near you, or the time or date doesn't suit, do get in touch and find out about Street Pride and In Bloom groups, who are also focused on enhancing local environments especially through gardening and planting projects.
Wisbech Street Pride and In Bloom groups have a promotional stall at Wisbech Market on Sunday (May 7).
Coronation Big Help Out events include community litter picks on Monday (May 8) at:
- Newton-in-the-Isle - 10.30am, meet at Newton Village Hall, Church Lane
- Tydd St Giles - Noon, meet at the Tydd St Giles Community Centre car park, Broad Drove East
- Wimblington - 11am, meet at Wimblington Parish Hall, Addison Road
Litter pick equipment is provided for all the above events. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. Please wear suitable footwear and clothing.
The Government has a digital map, which it has encouraged community groups to add their Coronation and Big Help Out events on. See: Coronation events digital map
