Clifton cleaned for the Queen

Around 40 residents joined with Parish Councillors at two large-scale clean-ups on Saturday 5 March in support of the Clean for the Queen campaign.Group photo

There were great turnouts at both the village centre  and at Hillmorton Locks, with a collection of around 20 sacks of litter, cans, bottles, car parts, old clothing, poles and other debris in Clifton.  The residents of The Locks also cleared and swept old litter, car debris, mud and leaves into another 8 sacks, making a big difference to the look of the area.

The clean up took around 2 hours, after which the people who took part were treated to a well-deserved hot drink in The Bull Inn.

Thanks to all the residents (especially the lady who was celebrating her 40th birthday) , their children and dogs who took part.

To mark the event Rugby Borough Council has donated 10 litter picking sticks and hi-viz vests to the parish, to enable the Parish Council or its residents to take part in further clean-ups during the year.
