WI leads way in clean up for the Queen
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.
Members of South Willesborough & Newtown WI, in association with the Wednesday Litter Pickers run by Sue Williamson, will take part in a Clean for the Queen session next Wednesday. 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.
