Help clean for the Queen this March

Bedford Borough Council is encouraging residents to take action against litter by joining in with the nation’s biggest ever clean-up.

 

In the run up to The Queen's 90th birthday celebration in 2016, Keep Britain Tidy is urging millions of people to spruce up streets and open spaces across the country.

 

The Clean for The Queen campaign is encouraging communities to get involved with a flurry of litter picking and other events on the special national clean-up weekend of Friday 4 to Sunday 6 March.

 

Community groups, schools, residents' associations, businesses and organisations are being encouraged to take an active role in helping protect areas that are special to them and create a lasting legacy of a cleaner, tidier Bedford Borough that everyone can be proud of.

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough Dave Hodgson said: “I hope residents of all ages, along with local groups and businesses will join this national event to Clean for the Queen. It’s an opportunity to build on the efforts of Borough residents who already volunteer their time to help clean up streets and open spaces. It's easy to register online to lead or join a local event.”

 

Bedford Borough Council is working with the Environment Agency and local groups to host a Rivercare event. Volunteers are invited to join in and assist in litter picking, highlighting graffiti and other unsightly areas along the river banks. 

 

The event will be held between 10am and 12pm on Saturday 5 March. Volunteers will meet at the Borough Hall car park, Cauldwell Street, at 10am.

 

The Council is also looking to support community litter picks and pick up any collected litter. For further information, please email Karen Fletcher: volunteering@bedford.gov.uk 

 

Groups can register to be listed on the Clean for the Queen campaign map by visiting Clean for the Queen at www.cleanforthequeen.org
