Wickford Rainbows go Wombling

13th Oct 2018

1st Wickford Rainbows had a very enjoyable visit from the Wickford Wombles as part of their UMA 'Rainbow Survey’.

.  We started with a bit of play acting by the Wombles of people throwing litter; followed by a lovely short powerpoint about all the different litter lying around and what harm and damage it can do to our surrounding wildlife and to wildlife across the world. The pictures of a baby seal surrounded by everything plastic and a hedgehog stuck in a tin can really made the Rainbows sit up. They had a short Q & A session and then we donned our hi-viz, gloves, wellies and rubbish pickers and had a look around the church and car park for litter. It was amazing how much litter there was to pick up, as you can see from the two bags in the photos.

The afternoon was rounded off by the girls each being presented with a Wombling Certificate.
