The Queen’s 90th birthday has inspired a nationwide army of litter pickers to spruce up public spaces.

In Bedford, residents are invited to join a riverside clean-up by the Borough Council and the Environment Agency, as part of the Clean For The Queen campaign.

Volunteers should meet in Borough Hall’s Cauldwell Street car park at 10am on Saturday, March 5, to help clear areas along the river banks.

The Council is also looking to support community litter picks and pick up any collected litter. For further information, please email Karen Fletcher:
