HELP TIDY up your community by getting involved with a special ‘Clean for the Queen’ campaign.
The scheme, scheduled for the weekend of March 4-6, aims to give communities a tidy up ahead of Her Majesty’s birthday in April.
It is being adopted by communities across the country and has the national backing of the Women’s Institute, the National Trust and the RSPB.
And in Saddleworth, the scheme will be officially launched at the Old Bell Inn, on Huddersfield Road in Delph, on Friday, January 22 at 12.15pm.
Attending the launch will be councillors, council workers, and the MP for Oldham East and Saddleworth, Debbie Abrahams.
Saddleworth Parish Council and the Saddleworth and Lees District Partnership are backing the campaign and encouraging groups and individuals to get involved.
Everyone can ‘do their bit’ to help clean up litter, whether its on the streets, in the parks, on the canal bank, or in the countryside.
Cllr Paul Fryer, Chairman of the Parish Council Environment Committee, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Clean for the Queen, and would encourage everyone to take part.
“If every citizen in Saddleworth picked up just one piece of litter over the weekend it would make a tremendous difference.
“Hopefully, people will get involved in the organised campaigns. We are looking for support from Saddleworth’s schools and uniformed organisations.”
