Cleaning Fenland for the Queen
Volunteers have been out in force across Fenland to clear litter to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.
March Street Pride, along with Waterlees in Bloom at Wisbech, were among groups taking part in the Clean for the Queen campaign to mark her birthday on April 24.
Members of the March group met outside the George Campbell Leisure Centre before patrolling around the town.
Fenland District Council’s Ged Wylde is calling on dog owners to pick up after their pets. He said: “We hope this event will encourage people to take responsibility for their littering, including dog fouling.
“This needs to be reported in order for action to be taken. We can’t act until a person is seen walking away from it.”
Youngsters from Orchards Primary School, which is part of Waterlees in Bloom, collected 14 bags of rubbish around the school, plus youngsters also picked litter up litter at the Spinney.
Litter picking was undertaken in Wisbech St Mary, Leverington and Manea. For more information go to www.fenland.org.uk
