A community clean-up event is set to take place this weekend, as the annual Big Spring Clean hopes to give Wellingborough town centre a refresh.

On March 23 the event, organised by Wellingborough Town Council in conjunction with the Wellie Wombles, is asking for volunteers to roll up their sleeves and help tidy up the streets, parks, and public spaces.

Cllr Graham Lawman (Con), leader of Wellingborough Town Council, said: “As residents of our town, it’s essential that we come together to ensure its cleanliness and appeal.

"The Big Spring Clean isn’t just about picking up litter; it’s about fostering a sense of pride in our town and camaraderie among residents. By working together, we can create a cleaner, safer and more vibrant Wellingborough for all.

“A cleaner, tidier Wellingborough will make it more attractive for both residents and visitors to come in and enjoy the facilities and shops, enhancing the local economy. I look forward to seeing you there.

"Don’t miss your chance to be part of this exciting initiative. Join us on Saturday, March 23, and let’s make Wellingborough Town Centre shine brighter than ever before.”
