Local business helps collect 134 bags of rubbish in bid to clean up the countryside




Local business helps collect 134 bags of rubbish in bid to clean up the countryside

More than 60 volunteers took part in a huge litter pick in the Leicestershire countryside at the weekend.

Organised by the South Leicestershire Litter Wombles, who were celebrating the group’s first anniversary, the volunteers filled 134 bin bags with rubbish, including tyres, motor parts, a vacuum cleaner and even a bed.

The volunteers descended on the hedgerows and ditches on a one mile stretch of Willoughby Road between Willoughby Waterleys and Countesthorpe on Sunday morning.

Among them was local CEO Robert Lockyer, whose Whetstone-based luxury packaging company Delta Global sponsors the Wombles, gladly provided the new high-vis kit marked with the slogan ‘Action Not Words’ along with bin bag hoops.

“We are committed to reducing our own environmental impact and positively changing the mindsets of others when it comes to tackling waste,” said Robert.

“It was an eye-opening experience to take part. The team also worked hard to separate recyclable waste such as glasses and cans. We are proud to be part of such a cause.”

Organiser Bob Lee, the Wombles’ leader, said: “What started as an ambitious pick turned into one of our most successful – what an impressive haul.

“We lost count of the number of volunteers who turned up – it was more than 60. We’d like to say a special thank you to our new sponsor Delta Global.”

The litter pick ended with a well-deserved get-together at the General Elliott pub. The group regularly gathers to clean up the Leicestershire countryside and welcomes new volunteers. For information, join their Facebook group, South Leicestershire Litter Wombles.
