The Whittlesey area Street Pride Group is made up of approximately 46 local residents who want to make Whittlesey, Coates, Eastrea and Pondersbridge a cleaner, safer and more attractive place to live.
The Street Pride scheme gives volunteers the opportunity to make a difference to their local environment by holding clean up events, including litter picking and bulb planting reporting environmental crimes, such as litter, graffiti, damaged Council property and fly tipping.
The group has six gateway projects already set up, there are five boats and two ploughs. The “Litterpicker” at the Delph, “Pride of Whittlesey” Kings Delph, “Spirit of Whittlesey” Ramsey Road. “Whittlesea Wayfarer” Station Road, “Whittlesey Wildfowler”Guildenburgh Crescent, a plough on March Road Coates plus another plough at the Jubilee Garden site, Plough Road.
