West Fenham Wombles – More #WomblesWanted

The Wombles are back and are joining forces with Keep Britain Tidy to launch this years Great British Spring Clean 2020. They are also launching a campaign very close to our hearts, encouraging people to adopt positive Womble-style behaviour, from recycling to reusing and refurbishing old items rather than sending them to landfill.

Last year, more than 560,000 people took part and this year we are aiming to get 600,000 #LitterHeroes out there. Why not join us!
