Her Majesty The Queen celebrates her 90th birthday in April 2016 and we want the whole community to get involved and help us celebrate.
New Forest District Council is supporting the national Clean for the Queen campaign by asking schools, parish councils and community groups to spend a few hours giving our beautiful country a spring clean.
Events will be taking place throughout the spring with the biggest litter blitz from Friday 4 to Sunday 6 March.
Let us help
To make it as easy as possible to get out there and tidy up, New Forest District Council can help with the following:
- Posters to let people know about the event
- Loan of litter grabbers
- Litter sacks
- Clear sacks if you would like to recycle some of that litter
- Collection of the sacks of litter
- Certificates and stickers for younger volunteers
Make a day of it
Why not make a day of it and invite volunteers back for a cuppa at your local hall? It’s a great way to get to know your neighbours and you could even ask a local business to sponsor some refreshments.
The safety of volunteers always comes first. Check out Keep Britain Tidy’s advice about organising a litter pick and make sure you’ve completed a site assessment before the day.
Join us this spring and help us Clean for the Queen!
