We are a group promoting the clean up of our local Wythenshawe parks and green spaces.
We aim to network the volunteers in each park and attend litter picking days.
We welcome new members from all across the 5 wards and the broader community and hope to see a litter free Wythenshawe very soon.
We believe that together we are stronger and that all our activities are building towards a community that is sustainable: environmentally, economically, physically, mentally and spiritually for the future.
For 2021 we set the target to collect 2021 bags of waste.
We thought that this would be a feat in it’s self.
In 2020, the collective amassed 3,333 bags of waste from the area.
Plus reporting fly tipping and other waste issues.
We are ASTOUNDED that our volunteers, across the 5 wards of Wythenshawe collected over 10, 000 bags.
A feat that the BBC recognised in December 2021
OUR TOTAL AS OF 29th December 2021 is:
A HUGE thank you to you all those who contributed to this tally; volunteers, leads, partners, funders, even our local MP and some councillors; on behalf of the residents, wildlife and green spaces
– THANK YOU.🙏😄
Special thanks to our undercover friends David and Marilyn
who have contributed largely to this total.
They went on 88 litter picks as a duo this year.Collecting as a pairthis year;
323 bags from 4 parks in 44 visits.
Adding to their total of 1002 bags in 2 years(672 were in Wythenshawe Park alone.)
All this from just two people.What would it have looked like without this?
Since I was installed as Her Majesty’s High Sherriff of Greater Manchester, I have seen first-hand how much we rely on volunteers to keep our communities connected, safe and clean – particularly during the recent challenging times.
Wythenshawe Waste Warriors are a great example of people coming together to do a fantastic job because they really care about where they live.
I am immensely proud of being from Wythenshawe and to witness the passion of all involved in this mapping exercise confirms what we already knew – that Wythenshawe people are determined to make a difference.
John-Paul Coe is an inspiration and with his guidance and leadership, the Wythenshawe Waste Warriors will continue to work hard, in their own time and without financial reward, for the good of the whole community.
Uncovering, protecting and celebrating our local heritage is so important and I should like to congratulate and thank every single person involved in looking after what is precious to us.

We were honoured to be raising funds for St Ann’s Hospice in 2021.
We had many ideas to fundraise and any participation was welcome.Every penny raised went to the charity
we encouraged all to litter pick by mirroring our bag count with every pound raised.
We are grateful for the support of our local Wythenshawe Town Football Club.
Their kind donation has ensured that the website can remain open for another year.
