John-Paul is the Lead Volunteer for Newall Green Nature Area and Milky Button Park and also the founder and current Chairman of Wythenshawe Waste Warriors.
Milky Button is where the story of the group starts; as his son Bobby and his classmates had to return home after play was ruined by broken glass and dog waste: prompting John-Paul to work to clean the area.
Pastor Paulo from the Word of Life Church, plus MCC Officers Lorraine Murtagh and Jane Hall were early partners helping to litter pick and provided support.
Whilst working on a plan for the area, John-Paul also created a template of good practice and useful contacts for others to adopt and ease into Lead Volunteering. It is the culmination of lots of support from lots of people all of which you’ll find on the Wythenshawe Waste Warriors Timeline.
John-Paul welcomes all to join and make a difference.
