Clean For The Queen

04 Mar 2016

00:00

FLAG will be holding events in Fylde as part of the Clean For The Queen campaign, which is being run by Keep Britain Tidy to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday. We are currently in the planning stage and will announce more details as we have them, but want to work with the community during the event, which will run from Friday 4th March through to Sunday 6th March 2016. To sign up for the event please visit https://www.fylde.gov.uk/forms/ShowForm.asp?fm_fid=894 Community groups, schools, businesses and residents can nominate an area they feel is a litter hot spot and with the support of FLAG and Fylde Council can organise a litter picking event. The litter picking events can take place on the beach, in local parks, open spaces and highways, including back streets. During the event a competition will be running for any local volunteer litter picking groups to win prizes. .

North Rode Litter Patrol
North Rode is a small spread out rural community, where a few passing motorists love to drive through and leave momentos of their night out, mainly empty cans of carling black label, take away cartons and fag packets. We also clean and keep clear road signs if needed. Let’s keep this beautiful village clean and green!

The Litter-Free Guiseley Campaign
Active since 2003. Our group hates the way that litter blights the environment. We understand that Council services cannot resolve the problem alone, so we put something back into our community by tackling the issue head-on. Our main aim is to keep the streets, lanes and green spaces of Guiseley, West Yorkshire, clear of litter. Occasionally, we cross over into Menston and Otley. We are looking for more active support from the residents of Guiseley. Volunteers can either adopt their own patch & work solo or team up with other volunteers. Hours totally flexible - whatever suits you. Equipment and advice are provided free of charge! We cover different parts of Guiseley and we are collecting upwards of 100 bags of litter a month. Please support us in whatever capacity you can.
