Cleaning up the community
Local people are showing pride in their patch and cleaning up their communities as part of a national tidy-up ahead of official celebration for the Queen’s 90th birthday in June.
Havant Borough Council and East Hampshire District Council are among the local authorities taking part in the initiative, and encouraging local residents to do their bit by litter-picking areas of their community between Friday 4th and Sunday 6th March.
When Queen Elizabeth II came to the throne litter was not the problem that it is today. Food packaging, plastic bottles, takeaway meals and cigarette butts have all contributed to a growing menace that affects our wildlife, streets, countryside and sense of pride.
Clean for The Queen is asking everyone - individuals, groups, schools, companies, sports teams – whoever is keen to clean up their area to get involved. The aim is to attract one million people during the special clean-up weekend.
