Salisbury schools, community groups and neighbourhoods get involved in Clean for the Queen

All in Salisbury are asked to get involved in the national Clean for the Queen campaign to help prepare the city for the queen’s 90th birthday celebrations.  To make it easy for you to take part in Clean for The Queen, Wiltshire Council has published a simple guide to help you hold a litter picking event in your local area. Before you start planning your litter picking event, speak to Karen Linaker your community engagement manager, the city council, or other local groups who may already be involved. Please complete a registration form at www.wiltshire.gov.uk/cleanforthequeen. This will allow us to support your event and send you resources to assist with your litter picking event.

Clean for The Queen is a campaign to clear up Britain in time for Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday, which will be officially celebrated in June 2016. The campaign was launched by Country Life magazine in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy in a bid to rally volunteers across the country to clean up their local areas. When The Queen came to the throne, litter was not the problem that it is today. Food packaging, plastic bottles, takeaway meals and cigarette butts have all contributed to a growing menace that affects our wildlife, streets, countryside and sense of pride.  Take part in the Clean for The Queen weekend on 4, 5 and 6 March 2016.
