Community out in force to Clean for the Queen

Posted by Town Hall Staff 20 May 2016

Thank you to everyone who responded to the Town Council’s call to ‘Clean for the Queen’ in March and April this year. The local community has once again done Felixstowe proud and helped to make a real difference in the town.

The initiative began on Saturday 5th March 2016 when the Mayor of Felixstowe together with a team of Councillors, volunteers and representatives from Felixstowe Sea Cadets, spent the morning clearing a large amount of litter and detritus from the alley between the Library to Hamilton Road.

On the same day, joining hundreds of other teams across the country, ten members of the Felixstowe Landguard Rotary Club together with two guests cleaned the beach and adjacent area from the Deben entrance to the steps by Gulpher Road. Over 30 kgs of rubbish was collected.
