Help turn our ‘grot-spots’ into ‘hot spots’ says Parish Council as it prepares to Clean for the Queen
The Parish Council wants your help for a major clean-up of the village to coincide with Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday.
Colnbrook with Poyle Parish Council is promoting this year’s special Keep Britain Tidy initiative, Clean for the Queen, in celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday.
The event will be take place on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th March, starting each day at the Village Hall from 9 am. The plan is to progress from the Jubilee Clock both ways through the village, include the trading estates, the Westfield estate, the parks, and streams.
Cllr Scott Bryant has tonight called on all villagers to lend a hand:
“I am asking you all for your support in this event, either big or small all in aid of making our ‘Grot-Spots’ a ‘Hot Spot’ within the village”.
He is encouraging residents to submit suggestions on where in the parish needs attention – and, of course, to volunteer their support.
“If you have any questions, concerns, grot-spot areas or you wish to volunteer your time please let me know.
“Your support will be very much appreciated”.
Local companies are being contacted with a view to supporting the initiative and Lanz Waste Management and Slough Borough Council have already pledged their support.
Two weeks ago Cllr Raymond Jackson also said the Neighbourhood Action Group had committed to further activities to coincide with the clean-up campaign in March, in an interview with BBC Berkshire.
The Parish Council is in the process of putting together a newsletter to be delivered to all the residents within Colnbrook and Poyle to promote the event further.
