Ely WI Litter Pick


Following the success of April’s litter pick after the Great British Spring Clean Ely City WI “jumped to the left and stepped to the right” to do the litter pick again! It’s clear to see that Ely City WI are striding ahead and most definitely not in a ‘time warp’!

With the help of equipment provided by Ely Litter Pickers five members gathered at the Maltings and quickly got to work tidying up the Riverside area.

Given the popularity of this area, the beautiful weather and the most recent celebrations, the litter pickers found that there was very little litter and managed to gather their rubbish in to one bag. However, it’s not the quantity it’s the, er, quality and some rather interesting objects were retrieved including a fingernail (false), a giraffe (toy) and a cat collar – but no cat!

Maggie, Sue, Linnie, Helen and Kaye agreed that they are passionate about making Ely a cleaner place and, with many more people spending time in their local area over the past couple of years; seeing the same spaces and places it is easy to notice what is around us and what a difference it can make to get involved in clearing up.

It feels good to do my bit and it does make a difference. It may not be my rubbish, but it is our community space and if we can all do something, no matter how small, we can help keep our environment safe and tidy”.

This is just one of the many campaigns that Ely City WI get involved with, to find out more about the campaigns the WI support to tackle issues that matter to our members, please take look here: www.thewi.org.uk/campaigns
