Planet Wimborne has written to several businesses, including BP, Shell and Esso service stations, Co-op and McColl’s, asking them if they stock disposable BBQs and if so, to consider taking them off their shelves.
Planet Wimborne hopes these businesses take the positive step to stop selling disposable BBQs and also sign up to support the Litter Free Dorset campaign.

One of Planet Wimborne’s affiliated groups is St John’s Church, where a whole crowd of children from Wimborne had great fun this summer taking part in the church’s annual holiday club, ‘KidsVenture’. This year’s theme focussed on the Christian idea of real transformation that can be found through God – including the need for things to change for the better in the way we care for our planet.
