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