"Clean for the Queen" is a campaign launched by Country Life magazine in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy to clear up Britain in time for The Queen’s 90th birthday in April. It will rally an army of volunteers across the country to clean up their local areas and will include a special clean-up weekend on March 4th–6th.
Brentwood Conservatives are backing this national programme and are arranging a number of clean up events across the borough as part of our local efforts.
Councillors and volunteers are coming together with litter picks, black sacks and orange recycling bags to collect litter and help keep Brentwood clean.
We have a strong reputation for focusing on street cleaning, but more can always be done. If everyone collected just one piece of litter a day and disposed of it properly, it would make a huge difference to the cleanliness of the borough and would save taxpayers money that could be spent on other Council services.
The events are being organised in Hutton, Shenfield and central Brentwood (Hutton North, Shenfield, Brentwood North, Brentwood South, Brentwood West and Warley) across the weekend of the 5th / 6th March, with activity taking place a week earlier on the East Ham Estate and the Town Centre, where volunteers will be joining in the efforts to clear up litter and plant some flowers.
For more information and to take part, please drop us a line. We need as many people as possible to join us so we can really make a difference!
