Working with the Market Harborough Environment Group, The Welland Rivers Trust has submitted a funding application to acquire new litter-picking equipment for the monthly river clean-ups in the town. If successful, we will be able to buy additional waders for volunteers to use during the river clean-ups, as well as more litter pickers, and hoops to attach to, and keep open, the bin bags used for litter collection.
The fund is being offered by the Market Harborough Building Society (http://www.mhbs.co.uk/charitable_foundation.aspx), to help support local charities and communities around the Market Harborough area. Fingers crossed, hopefully we will have good news to share with you soon.
If you wish to get involved in the litter pick, the next one will be on November 30th at 1:30 pm, meeting at the memorial gardens in Market Harborough.
