progress report

We've collected 500 bags so far!


Founded: 20th Feb 2017


Town or City: Clacton-on-Sea

Areas covered: Weeley Village, Weeley Heath, Essex. We meet outside Weeley Council Offices at 10am every third Monday of the month.

Part of the Weeley Residents Association. We started up about 10 months after the Association was formed, as so many residents had expressed their concerns about the amount of litter around the area. We have several take-aways in the area, and the detritus was mounting up so much Tendring District Council couldn't keep on top of it. We litter pick once a month, every third Monday morning, and there is usually a hard-core of about 10 residents who pick regularly. We also encourage residents to keep their frontages as clear of rubbish as possible and the area has seemed a lot tidier since we started. We are hoping to go into the local School wearing our home-made WeeleyWombley costumes in the next few weeks, together with McDonalds, to encourage the primary school children to litter pick, and to take their litter home with them, encouraging their parents/families to do the same.
