Bury St Edmunds MP Jo Churchill is calling on schools, businesses and community groups to help tidy up their local area ahead of the Queen’s 90th birthday.

The initiative ‘Clean for The Queen’ aims to get community groups to organise their own litter pick or clean up in the coming weeks or over the ‘Clean for The Queen’ weekend from March 4 to 6.

Schools are also encouraged to enter the ‘anti-litter’ poster campaign with the best overall design used as a professional marketing poster and displayed at key locations around the country. The closing date for entries is Monday, February 15. Mrs Churchill said: “This is a great opportunity to make sure that we get the Bury St Edmunds constituency neat and tidy in time for HM The Queen’s official 90th birthday on April 21. I hope people in our area will consider getting involved so together we can help mark this momentous occasion.”
