Not just running – but keeping the area tidy too!
A big shout out to members of our club who have been carrying out litter picks in the area during recent weeks.
The group, known as the HRC Wombles, decided to take action to help make the town a cleaner place for all to enjoy.
More than 20 members took part in the first event, split into smaller groups, with 25 bags of rubbish being collected. And members have been continuing with the litter picks since.
Club secretary Liz Aspden-Mansfield, who set up the group, said: “We noticed litter in areas of Hinckley and Burbage and wanted to do our bit to help keep the town a cleaner place.
“As a club, we love running the many beautiful routes around Hinckley and Burbage and so thought we could give something back by helping to keep the place tidy for us and the rest of the community to enjoy.
“The effort by the club was brilliant to see and it is great that this is being continued with more litter picks planned.”
Well done HRC Wombles!! 👏👏👏
