Join the UK’s largest litter pick - Clean for the Queen
22nd February 2016
Clean for The Queen is asking everyone - individuals, groups, schools, companies, sports teams – to join in with a mass action to clean up the country. The aim is to get one million people out and active during a special clean-up weekend on 4, 5 and 6 March.
A recent survey conducted by Populus found that 90 per cent of respondents consider litter to be a massive issue, with 81 per cent saying that seeing litter makes them angry and frustrated. The Clean for The Queen event started off as a conversation between a handful of organisations, fed up with the continuing littering that affects the UK. Together, Country Life magazine, the Garfield Weston Foundation and the national charity Keep Britain Tidy, undertook to create the biggest clean-up ever, with an ambition to get one million people engaged.
The “Chorleywood Cleans for the Queen”, Bedmond Village Task Force and South Oxhey Baptist Church will be involved in various community clean-up activities across the parish on the 5 March, to support the 'Clean for the Queen' campaign and to galvanise the community working together for this worthy cause.
