Clean for The Queen in Milton Keynes

Date Posted:25/02/2016

The Parks Trust staff and volunteers are set to take part in one of the UK’s largest litter picks.

Clean for The Queen is a call for volunteers to join the UK’s largest litter pick and help get your local area looking its very best in the year of The Queen’s 90th birthday.

The aim of the campaign is to attract one million people during a special clean-up weekend on 4, 5 and 6 March 2016.

The Queen for the Queen Campaign Director Adrian Evans said: “Our ambition is to create a community inspired, grass-roots mass action event – one that will become a recurring annual initiative. We feel that marking The Queen’s 90th birthday with the inaugural clean-up is a wonderful way to kick-start it to life. "We want to show that millions of people in this country care passionately about the litter affecting the nation and are prepared to get out and do something about it. Everyone in this country will reap the benefits.”

The Parks Trust staff and volunteers will host their litter pick on Saturday 5th March from 10am-12noon, Stanton Low Park, Milton Keynes.

The Parks Trust Head of Community Engagement Briony Fox said: “We value our volunteers and all their hard work throughout the year. Being part of Clean for the Queen means we can encourage more people to get involved so that everyone can enjoy a cleaner place to live.”

Please meet in the car park off Selkirk Drive, Oakridge Park.

Litter pickers, gloves and sacks will be provided. Please wear sensible clothing and footwear. See or call 01908 233600 for information.
