Horncastle’s big town clean up was such a smashing success...they’re set to do it all again!
Almost 50 volunteers took part in a range of events over the weekend of March 5-6 as part of the national ‘Clean for the Queen’ campaign.
On Saturday morning, a group which included some army cadets, collected litter or took part in a Rivercare event to clean up rubbish in the town’s rivers.
On Saturday afternoon, Horncastle and District Lions were out in force, cleaning signs around the town.
And on Sunday, a a group of councillors and volunteers painted bollards in the town centre.
Town mayor CounAngela Birchall said: “It is fantastic that local people gave up their free time to come out and tidy up their town.
“We are very grateful for their support.”
The clean-up was the start of a campaign being led by the town council to spruce up Horncastle.
More events are planned in the summer
At a town council meeting last week, it was agreed to hold another clean up in June - on the weekend before the town’s celebrations for the Queen’s 90th birthday.
More details will be announced soon.
