In response to the increased litter levels as lock-down rules start to be lifted, some of you have told us that you are ready to start litter-picking again. We also know that many of you are still not comfortable to litter-pick again yet. We do not in any way want to make anyone feel as though they should be back out there if they are not ready. However, we DO want to support anyone who is choosing to litter-pick right now. You can now meet outside in a group of up to 30 people. Please see the Government guidelines for further details https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
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 first 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.
