“We’re hoping lots of people will get into the spirit of the Big Tidy Up campaign this autumn. We’re pleased to have the help of Wyre Forest Wombles who will be popping up in all sorts of places across the district – so look out for them on the litter picks or in the parks, nature reserves and on the High Street! Follow their activities on our Facebook page. This extra big effort is all part of our work to keep the place clean and tidy for residents, visitors and businesses.”
