Communities Clean For The Queen

Communties across Herts, Beds, Bucks and Northants are getting down and dirty this weekend - to clean-up local roads, parks and rivers - ahead of the Queen's 90th birthday this April.

Thousands of volunteers are taking part in the "Clean for the Queen" campaign picking up litter over the next few days.

A number of organisations and anti-monarchy groups though aren't impressed saying the public shouldn't have to litter-pick and clean-up for the Queen.

However many people getting involved say they're doing it for their own communities so help clean-up their own towns and villages for their own benefit and they're using the opportunity to bring people together to help do that.

Here's a selection of the events taking place and a full list can be found for Saturday and Sunday here:

In Northampton the Far Cotton Residents Association have arranged a litter pick/tidy up from 9.45 on Saturday morning to midday starting at the Far Cotton Rec Centre

At Furzton Lake in Milton Keynes, there's a community clean up from 10-12pm on Saturday.

In Bedford, there's a river clean up starting at the Borough Hall Car Park at 12 noon on Saturday (Cauldwell Street), MK42 9AP

At Bricket Wood on Saturday, there's a village clean-up from 9.30-12 noon, meeting at the village sign by the Oakwood Road shops.
