Town’s big tidy up is just fit for the Queen

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

VOL­UN­TEERS grabbed lit­ter pick­ers and bin bags in their bid to ‘clean for the Queen’.

Fire­fight­ers, town coun­cil­lors, Mac­cles­field mayor Liz Durham, MP David Rut­ley scouts and church groups got to­gether to take part in the tidy-up, which is part of a na­tion­wide cam­paign to clean up com­mu­ni­ties for the Queen’s 90th birth­day cel­e­bra­tions.

Vol­un­teers met at the town hall and worked through the af­ter­noon, pick­ing up lit­ter around Mar­ket Place, Mill Street, Church­side, Ch­ester­gate and the Town Hall.

Coun Martin Hardy, who led on the ar­range­ments for Mac­cles­field Town Coun­cil, said: “It was great to see the com­mu­nity pulling to­gether to im­prove the town cen­tre for all who use it.

“It was a fun ac­tiv­ity and we en­joyed the op­por­tu­nity to make a dif­fer­ence and have a chat as we worked.”

As well as the clean for the Queen scheme to cel­e­brate the Queen’s 90th birth­day, Mac­cles­field Town Coun­cil is also look­ing to plant 90 trees as a per­ma­nent trib­ute.
