  • Our Story

    Greening Wingrove CiC is a co-operative set up by residents in the Wingrove area of Newcastle upon Tyne.  Its main aim is to improve the environment and the social cohesion of the area for the benefit of all residents.  We want to make it a better place in which to live.

    Wingrove is one of the most socially deprived an ethnically diverse areas of the City.  The area is very built up with lots of terraced housing, much of which is owned by private landlords.  Therefore the population is very transient and residents often have little commitment to the area.  It has long had a problem with litter both on the streets and in the back lanes.  This has got a lot worse recently since shared bins have been introduced.

    Greening Wingrove has done a range of work to tackle the litter and fly tipping problem but it remains the residents number one complaint about the area.  The Clean Team work supported by Greggs Foundation has enabled us to move on to a new phase of the work.
