Altogether, across the UK more than a million people have been out and about clearing up the places where they live to help celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday in April.

The campaign, backed by organisations including the Women’s Institute, the National Trust and the RSPB, as well as businesses including McDonald’s, Costa, Greggs, KFC and Wrigley and anti-litter charities such as Keep Britain Tidy and the Campaign to Protect Rural England, was the biggest community-led clean-up the country has ever seen.

As part of the campaign, Chorleywood Parish Council, South Oxhey Baptist Church, Harvey Road School and Bedmond School and Village Task Force in Three Rivers held events in the area.

Emma Woollon, Headteacher at Bedmond Village Primary and Nursery School said: ‘Clean for The Queen is about everyone working together to give the country a big spring clean ahead of Her Majesty’s birthday and in Bedmond and Three Rivers came out in force to support it.

Clean for The Queen campaign director Adrian Evans said: ‘On behalf of the campaign, I would like to say a big “thank you” to everybody who participated in Three Rivers and for supporting Clean for The Queen.

‘They have been part of a campaign that has seen a million people stepping out of their front doors to make a difference to the way places look in every corner of the UK.’
