Join the clean up for the Queen

West Lancashire Borough Council is inviting you to help get the area looking its best in time to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Clean For The Queen is the UK’s largest litter pick and activities are planned for West Lancashire to make it look even more beautiful as part of this nationwide community campaign.

A Borough Council team will be carrying out a litter pick and clean up on the Friday 4 March 2015. This will start from the Skelmersdale Concourse Plaza and work towards Windrows/Willow Hey, including Tawd Valley Park. If you want to volunteer to help with this clean up please meet at the Concourse Plaza adjacent the Library at 9.30am.

The Council’s Ranger Service will be cleaning up Station Approach, Ormskirk, on Saturday 5 March 2016 and Beacon Country Park on Sunday 6 March and are inviting local people to give them a hand. Both activities take place between 10am and 1pm. To take part in the Station Approach clean up meet at the bottom of the car park by the station at 10am, or look for the Ranger so they can give you the clean up equipment if you want to join in later. To join the Beacon Country Park clean up meet at Visitor Centre at 10am.

A number of Parish Council events are also being planned and Local Community Groups are also getting involved, all of which is being supported by West Lancashire Borough Council.

Councillor Ian Moran, Leader of West Lancashire Borough Council, said: “I am really pleased that the Council is taking part in this nationwide community campaign. Please support the activities and help make West Lancashire look even better.”

Any groups or organisations that want to organise a clean-up can contact Sue Morgan at the council on 577177 ext 5475, or email susan.morgan@westlancs.gov.uk. Sue can organise help with your clean up.
