Volunteers from across Fenland gave up their time and reached for litter pickers and bin bags to support the national ‘Clean for the Queen’ anti-litter campaign.
Dozens of volunteers helped clear Fenland of litter to help fulfil the Queen’s 90th birthday wish, and events across last weekend included a ‘Royal Rumble’ litter pick in Manea and a Community Clear-up Day at Whittlesea Station.
At Whittlesea Station, volunteers were helped by staff from Abellio Greater Anglia and members of Railscape.
As well as picking up litter, helpers also did a spot of gardening – removing weeds and cutting back hedgerows on a piece of land that will eventually become a community garden.
In Waterlees, people from Circle Roddons and The Landscape Group lent a hand as part of the campaign requested by the Queen for her 90th birthday.
