Keynsham Wombles are going from strength to strength, with 80 people now volunteering to litter pick an area of their choice on a regular basis! On 25th October there was 'Big Womble' around the perimeter of Wellsway School and Broadmead Lane behind the Waitrose store. 30+ bags of litter were collected and Waitrose Partners Volunteers joined in the fun - one of them even wore the Womble suit!
Soon to be seen on a lamp post near you will be 'Help Your Local Womble' signs. Keynsham Wombles have kindly been given permission by B&NES to erect these Neighbourhood-Watch style signs in areas where there is an active Womble. The signs have been paid for with funding from Keynsham Town Council.
Following on from their success at the Keynsham Music Festival, the Wombles were asked to litter-pick at the Winter Festival (previously know as the Victorian Evening) - this article was written before the event, so hopefully it was a great success! Keynsham in Bloom/The Royal Horticultural Society awarded the Wombles a Level 4 â€˜Thrivingâ€™ in this years Itâ€™s Your Neighbourhood competition too. Keynsham Wombles now have over 100 followers on Facebook, so their fame is spreading! Please â€˜likeâ€™ them if you are on Facebook.
