Press Release from the Friends of Bidston Hill:
As part of its support for the country’s biggest-ever community clear up, the Friends of Bidston Hill are organising a community litter-pick on Saturday March 5th 2016.
The national Clean for The Queen campaign aims to give the country a tidy-up ahead of The Queen’s 90th birthday in April.
The campaign is being backed by organisations including the Women’s Institute, the National Trust and 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.
Supported by the Government, Clean for The Queen has also won the backing of councils across the UK and is centred on a weekend of activity from March 4th to 6th, 2016.
As part of this weekend of action the Friends of Bidston Hill will be holding an event for volunteers to meet at Tam O’Shanter Farm, Boundary Road, Bidston CH43 7PD which will run from 10am until 4pm. All are welcome but children must be accompanied by an adult. Boots and gloves are sensible (and litter pickers if anyone happens to have one!) There is free car parking.
Roy Caligari, Chair of the Friends of Bidston Hill said: ‘Clean for The Queen is about everyone working together to give the country a big spring clean ahead of Her Majesty’s birthday. We do what we can as a group to keep on top of litter but would really appreciate some help on this special occasion’.
Litter is a problem that affects every corner of the country. By taking part in Clean for The Queen, individuals and communities will not only be giving the Queen a suitably impressive gift to mark her 90th birthday, they will also be giving themselves and their area a present – a clean space in which to live, work and play.’Share this:
