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.
How Can I help?

A few words from our patron...
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.
Eamonn O’Neil DL
Deputy Lieutenant of Greater Manchester
