Residents are being urged to help SKDC’s efforts for the district’s streets to be ‘Clean for The Queen’ for her 90th birthday celebrations as part of a nationwide litter pick.
In the run up to Her Majesty’s landmark birthday on April 21, the national campaign aims to inspire a million people to take action and enjoy a few hours together litter picking to make the places where we live and work cleaner.
SKDC’s Executive Member for Environment Coun Nick Craft said: “We keep our streets clean, maintaining them for residents, visitors and investors alike but this effort is specifically for our towns, villages and rural areas to be clean for Her Majesty’s birthday.”
Organisations and individuals are invited to join SKDC’s extra efforts on Friday March 4 and encouraging other local town and parish councils within the district to get on board with the scheme.
The nation’s litter charities across the country have come together in support of the campaign together with companies, land managers and associations as part of litter blitzes across the weekend of March 4 to 6.
Coun Craft added: “We are looking to participate in a number of litter pick activities throughout the year starting with this dedicated effort to help make our streets even cleaner.
“We are encouraging individuals or groups to join us on March 4 or co-ordinate their own efforts with our support if required.”
