WI leads way in clean up for the Queen

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

Mem­bers of Or­le­stone WI are not tak­ing the up­com­ing Clean for the Queen cam­paign lightly. Wear­ing tiaras, be­jew­elled gloves and re­gal socks, they are plan­ning to tidy up Ham­street vil­lage on Fri­day, March 4. The ladies will meet at the Cosy Ket­tle, in The Street, at 10am and will lit­ter pick un­til noon. Mem­ber Mar­garet Han­lon said: “We are keen to help make the UK spick and span in the Queen’s 90th birth­day year. Ham­street is very lucky to have some vol­un­teers who reg­u­larly pa­trol to pick up lit­ter but, even so, there is al­ways more to be done and the ladies of the WI will be col­lect­ing lit­ter and wash­ing signs as they Clean for the Queen.” Any­one is wel­come to at­tend – just bring your bright­est gloves.

Pupils, teach­ers and par­ents from Fur­ley Park Pri­mary Academy, in Park Farm, Ash­ford, are also tak­ing part in the ini­tia­tive, which has been launched to cel­e­brate Her Majesty’s 90th birth­day. They will pick up lit­ter sur­round­ing the school on Fri­day, March 4. If you would like to help, con­tact 01233 501732.

The group will set off from the SWAN Cen­tre at 9am armed with pur­ple Clean for the Queen rub­bish sacks, hi-vis jack­ets, gloves and lit­ter pick­ers to clean up parts of South Willes­bor­ough.
