Village clean-up for Queen
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.
