About Us

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. The rose garden on the corner of Church Street, a small flower garden at Whitmore Street. Plus benches situated next to the “Spirit of Whittlesey” on Ramsey Road and the gardens at Whitmore Street junction with Mill Road

One other gateway project, a boat is in hand at the time of writing. Please go to boat projects for more upto date information.

The group meets bimonthly in the Town Hall to plan new events and to discuss local environmental issues.

    You all obviously work very hard to keep the gardens and displays looking lovely all the time. I especially like the garden at the start of Church Street.

      Yes, we did have a very good meet and as always plenty of rubbish and bottles were collected. Alan and I thank you for looking and making a comment or two, perhaps even three. See you at the next Bi Monthly meeting at the Town Hall. Until then enjoy the winter for as the spring approaches so does the work of planting and that never ending merry go round of mowing.

      All the best to you and Mrs. M.
