Pupils clean for Queen

Macclesfield Express - - DRUG DEALERS SENTENCED -

GIRLS from King’s school swapped blazers for gar­den­ing gear to take part in a tidy-up for the Queen’s 90th birth­day.

Eight girls from the school got busy with lit­ter pick­ers and bags for the tidy-up which is part of a na­tion­wide Clean for the Queen project to mark the Queen’s birth­day cel­e­bra­tions on April 21.

They cleaned up around the school’s Fence Av­enue site be­fore go­ing on to Vic­to­ria Park across the road.

Eloise Web­ster, 11, from Mac­cles­field, said: “The Queen wants a clean, lit­ter free coun­try and we want to make her birth­day wish come true.”

The event was or­gan­ised by Lynne Adams, King’s School char­i­ties co­or­di­na­tor.

She said: “King’s has a long as­so­ci­a­tion with the monar­chy hav­ing been named in hon­our of King Ed­ward VI in 1552 and one of our proud­est days was the visit of Queen El­iz­a­beth in May 2002.

“The event was de­signed to thank the Queen and en­cour­age in her hon­our the younger gen­er­a­tion to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for their en­vi­ron­ment and in­stil the val­ues of ser­vice, com­mu­nity and par­tic­i­pa­tion which she so won­der­fully has demon­strated all her life.”
