Many folk have adopted a road, or two, near where they live, and are Wombling there. They pick up any litter on their “patch” whilst keeping a safe distance from others, in order to keep the area looking pleasant. I have grabs that you could use if you would like to be a Wombler too. Just get in touch with me and let me know which road will be on your “patch” It would be wonderful if we could have every road in the Bookhams covered. You can email me at
Alternatively call our message line: 0300 030 9890.
A huge thank you to all those who are already Wombling!
You may well ask what is Wombling? For those unfamiliar with The Wombles they are fictional pointy-nosed, furry creatures created by Elisabeth Beresford and originally appeared in a series of children’s novels from 1968. They live in burrows where they aim to help the environment by collecting and recycling rubbish in fun and exciting ways. They had their own BBC TV show and Top Twenty novelty hits. Hence the term “Wombling” has been adopted by many litter picking and recycling groups.
