Putting Pride into Wimblington

Residents in Wimblington are being given the chance to join Fenland's Street Pride movement at a meeting in the village this week.

A meeting is being held at Wimblington Village Hall on Wednesday, July 26, at 7pm after several villagers expressed an interest in setting up the district's 14th Street Pride group.

Fenland District Council's Street Pride co-ordinator Rebecca Robinett will provide more information about how such a group can make a difference to the community, and if there's enough interest a group will be formally launched.

Councillor Peter Murphy, Fenland District Council's Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: "Our Street Pride volunteers have made such a difference to their local communities by creating gardens, planting flowers and trees, painting pavilions and community buildings and much more. They also carry out regular litter picks to keep our towns and villages clean and tidy so everyone can enjoy them."

"Now Wimblington residents have got a chance to make a difference too, and I hope as many people as possible will come along to help get a new group off the ground."

The district's other Street Pride groups are in Wisbech, March, Chatteris, Benwick, Gorefield, Leverington, Manea, Newton-in-the-Isle, Parson Drove, Tydd St Giles, Waterlees (Wisbech), Whittlesey and Elm.
