Vil­lage clean-up for Queen

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

RES­I­DENTS and par­ish coun­cil­lors took part in a lit­ter pick to cel­e­brate the Queen’s birth­day.

Mem­bers from the com­mu­nity and coun­cil­lors from Rainow Par­ish Coun­cil took part in the event, which was run as part of the na­tion­wide Clean for the Queen scheme.

The pro­gramme has been held to cel­e­brate the Queen’s 90th birth­day.

The team ti­died up ar­eas around Rainow armed with lit­ter pick­ers and bags.

Sarah Giller, clerk at Rainow Par­ish Coun­cil, said: “On a beau­ti­ful sunny Sun­day morn­ing Rainow Par­ish Coun­cil and lo­cal res­i­dents suc­cess­fully com­pleted a lit­ter pick for Clean for the Queen.

“There was tea, cof­fee, bis­cuits and melon pro­vided by The Robin Hood pub.

“The walk took just over two hours and the vol­un­teers col­lected 13 large bags of rub­bish and dis­posed of it.

“There were 15 helpers and the par­ish coun­cil thanked the vol­un­teers for tak­ing part.”

As well as the main tidy up, res­i­dents took to their streets to get them look­ing spick and span.

Sarah said: “Well done also to Hough Close and Sugar Lane who also took part in a tidy up gen­er­at­ing a lot of sup­port from res­i­dents.

“This was a great show of team­work.

“We would like to say many thanks to Cheshire East and Ansa for their sup­port.”

The Queen’s 90th birth­day will be of­fi­cially cel­e­brated in June.
