CLEAN FOR THE QUEEN AND BRITAIN IN BLOOM
FRONT GARDEN AND BEST PUB GARDEN COMPETITION
Clean for the Queen, otherwise known as the Spic and Span Ma’am campaign, is a campaign to clean up Britain for the Queen’s 90th Birthday this year. Newport Pagnell Town Council is calling on all residents, businesses, volunteer groups and schools to do their bit. We are organising a volunteering day for litter picking on 6th July starting at 9.30 am and ending as 1.00 pm. That’s just three and a half hours for you to volunteer in a whole year! We have several businesses interested already in contributing staff to swell the numbers. We will provide all necessary equipment.
The venue is the long stay car park at Bury Common, just off of Queen’s Avenue, Newport Pagnell. At 9.30 am we will split into groups to cover various sections of the town. Volunteers will be provided with any necessary equipment, and team leaders will be appointed to make sure that everyone knows where to go. Please register your interest in joining us by emailing Janine on firstname.lastname@example.org We need your email to count the numbers of people who require equipment.
Various schools in Newport Pagnell will also be holding litter picking events in parks between 3.30 pm and 5.30 pm on 6th July. For further information or to volunteer please contact Shar or Janine on 01908 618756.
Please join us — feel good about doing something to improve your town and come and meet new friends.
We are also once again holding two Britain in Bloom Competitions this year:
One for the best front garden in Newport Pagnell and one for the best floral display by a publican. You don’t need to register to enter, as we will be taking photographs of front gardens and pubs in July August this year, but if you would like us to pay particular attention to your front garden or pub please email Janine on email@example.com You don’t need a large garden; even the smallest of front spaces will be considered. Trophies for both competitions will be awarded at the Horticultural Show in September. So please get growing.
