Clean for The Queen in March

Thursday February 25 2016

Clean for The Queen Clean for The Queen

A CLEANING campaign is calling on local folk to join in with a nationwide clean-up.

The Clean for The Queen campaign, which takes place between the 4-6 of March, will give the country a tidy-up ahead of the Queen's 90th birthday in April.

People are invited to get involved with local activities across the borough including litter picks, tree planting and clean-up events.

Good idea but wonder how many folk will come forwards? Nobody likes to clear other peoples mess

Till the council sorts out all the tenants and landlords of rented housing within close proximity to the town centre there's no point of me getting involved in anything when some Eastern European just dumps bin bags in their garden or on the street. You report it and Barnsley Council ignore you, get off your backsides and fine the filthy b's

What about Barnsley Council cleaning and put right footpath 35 at Mapplewell that I have been complaining about for over 4 decades. Complaints to they council footpath Department, all the local councillors and Dan Jarvis. To date I have drawn a BLANK. So don't ask for volunteers, when you are not prepared to do anything.

some nice people in caravans have already started collecting rubbish already for the council to shift. if you go down fish dam lane at carlton there is a pile of rubbish in the lay-by down there . if council enforcement officers go down there and knock on a few caravan doors they may be able to give them information as to who left the rubbish there so fines could be given out , that is unless they are busy elsewhere.

I hate this, i smacks of serfdom - which is what the etonians want isn't it.

How's about Clean for yourselves and make your area a nicer place to live - I'm all up for that.
