The Queens 90th Birthday is on the 21st April 2016 and a national campaign has been launched – “Clean for the Queen” – Details below.
East Hampshire District Council has been working on this event in partnership with our Street Cleansing contractor, the Landscape Group Ltd. The Landscape Group have agreed to support local events by providing the necessary equipment (litter pickers and high visibility vests) and Clean for the Queen branded litter sacks free of charge, they will also arrange to collect filled bin bags after the event. The EHDC litter picking equipment we also have is available for use.
If you would like to take part in Horndean then please let me know on email@example.com. I have litter picker tools for adults and also children so schools and family groups are welcome to take part too. Bag disposal is easy too – they can be collected from my address after the picks.
We also have a Horndean and Clanfield litter pick group and would welcome support here too – please see the blog on this.
In the run-up to The Queen’s 90th birthday on 21 April 2016, we aim to inspire a million people to take action and enjoy a few hours together litter-picking to make the places where we live more beautiful. For Her and for us all, we want to attack the blight of litter and reclaim our beautiful countryside, our fabulous cities, our world-class parks, our wonderful beaches and waterways.
All of the country’s litter charities have come together in support of this campaign together with a growing range of companies, land managers and associations.
There will be ‘Clean for The Queen’ litter blitzes throughout the UK in January, February and March, and the most monumental of all litter clear-ups from Friday 4 to Sunday 6 March 2016.
We’d love to have your personal support in making this event truly spectacular. A downloadable resource pack is now available for your local authority to use. Using these marketing materials, it’d be great if you could encourage as many community groups as possible to sign up to organise a clean-up through the ‘Clean for The Queen’ website.
Furthermore, please do join your constituents and organise a clean-up to allow individuals to come together and take action as a community to clean up a local grot-spot.
Working together we can make a real start in combating the scourge of litter and demonstrate that there are many, many people across the country who care passionately about the issue and are prepared to do something to help sort it out.
Join us! Let’s Clean for The Queen.
