Have your say

This is your chance to join the large number of groups across the country involved in the national Clean for the Queen campaign, ahead of the Monarch’s 90th birthday.

When Her Majesty came to the throne, litter wasn’t the problem it is today.

Keep Britain Tidy estimates that more than a million tonnes of litter are collected from English streets every year.

Leighton-Linslade volunteer groups will be working with the council during the weekend of March 4 - 6 to remove rubbish from the town centre and surrounding countryside to provide a better environment for everyone to work, walk and play.

If you’re interested in joining the clean up and are happy to give up some of your time, you’ll be very welcome.

Gloves and litter picks will be provided, but if you have your own, bring them along.
