Winchburgh Community Growing Group in West Lothian has launched Winchburgh Wombles, inspired by the volunteers who have relentlessness picked litter in the village over the years.

Local people can sign up via the WCGG website and Facebook page and the ambition is to have every part of the community covered by wombles who can pick litter from across the area.

Winchburgh Developments Limited (WDL) are sponsors of the initiative which means that money can be reinvested in future growing projects within the village - Waste Warrior Wombles get to choose what the money can be spent on like flowers, bulbs, trees and everything edible in-between.

Volunteers will get rewards for helping and earn sun points to exchange for goodies – initially a free coffee from a local café, but as the project grows the hope is that more local business will get involved.
