And several other organisations have also been invited to lend a hand following the success of the “Clean for The Queen” campaign held over the same weekend last year.
On Friday, March 3, the March Street Pride/In Bloom group are teaming up with staff from Amey Cespa for a joint event that may also involve workers from Tesco and CUB. They will be meeting at the George Campbell Centre at 10am.
On the same day Wisbech Street Pride will meet at the Hudson Centre at 10am, with some Tesco staff hoping to join them, too.
And members of Waterlees In Bloom / Street Pride will gather at the Oasis Centre at 1pm, with extra support being provided by children from Orchards Primary School and Circle Roddons staff.
