Amber Valley Borough Council is celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday by taking part in ‘Clean for the Queen’ – the country’s biggest-ever clean-up.

Local authorities across the country, along with local organisations and members of the public, are coming together to tackle the issue of litter.

Amber Valley is set in the heart of Derbyshire – one of the most beautiful places in the country, so in honour of the Queens 90th birthday, the council wants to bring communities together to help clean the streets, making it somewhere fit for the Queen.

Councillor David Wilson, deputy leader of the council, said: “It gives me great pleasure to invite local residents to join us in this national campaign in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday.

“I’m also pleased to announce that the council will be undertaking a clean-up of the A38 in March, as part of the Clean for the Queen campaign”.

If you want like to take part you can meet on the Market Place in Heanor from 8.45am on Wednesday, March 2. The clean-up will take place from 9am to 11am. You can also take part in Somercotes, meeting on the Market Place from 8.45am for the clean-up from 9am to 12pm, on March 5.

Finally, on March 8, you can meet on Ripley Market Place from 8,45am for the clean-up from 9am to 12pm, or Alfreton’s Severn Square car Park, from 12.45pm from 12.45pm.
