Penarth residents are being asked to volunteer to  “Clean for the Queen”

 Penarth Town Council is appealing for volunteers to sign-up to take part in a town-wide litter clean-up  on Saturday March 5th from 10:00 to 13:00  as part of a special trans-UK   tidy-up in advance of the  Queen’s  90th birthday.

The operation is called  “Clean for the Queen’. and will concentrate on what the council calls the local “grot-spots”.

The Town Mayor, Cllr Rosemary Cook says “I urge  everyone to consider taking part in this event, enabling us to express pride in the beautiful town of Penarth and prepare for the Queen’s 90th birthday.”

The council will provide all the necessary litter-gathering equipment ; all that’s needed are the volunteers – the more the merrier.

The operation is in addition to the valuable work already regularly undertaken throughout the year by Penarth’s volunteer beach cleaners and Penarth Marina residents.

Volunteers are being asked to pitch-up at Penarth Town Council’s HQ  at  West House at 9.30am on Saturday 5th March and will be tasked top carry out litter-picking and cleaning signage and graffiti throughout the Dingle Pathway and on to The Esplanade and Cliff Top.

Meanwhile the Friends of Dingle Park have also pointed out that there’s a lot of litter-clearing work to do in the North West of the town – particularly in the vicinity of the newly opened steps which lead up to Penarth Heights from Hill Terrace and Windsor Road.

Mr Robert Donaldson and the Friends of Dingle Park – who are largely responsible for having transformed out of all recognition what was once one of the most neglected parks in Penarth – are urging that the “Clean for the Queen” initiative should be extended to take in the Hill Terrace/Penarth Heights steps  to rid that area of accumulated rubble and litter.

The opening of the new steps  was originally  reported by PDN in October 2015 (see PDN http://tinyurl.com/h3t6a4g)

    Maybe the slogan should read “don’t drop litter for the Queen.” A lot more people should take a pride in their town and surroundings – would make life more pleasant for everybody. After all we live here every day not just on the Queen’s birthday.

  2. Victor Meldrew says:

    Feck the Queen. Penarth town council needs to address the terrible roads and potholes first before any clean up for greedy Betty !!👹

  3. Anne Soulsby says:

    Penarth Marina Litterpickers will be out on 6 March as part of their regular litterpicking schedule. It would be great if this initiative motivates other Penarthians to clean up their patch.

  4. robert donaldson. says:

    I have drawn atention to the town clerks office that the hill terrace, hill top area can be a difficult to pick due to the accute slope here.also commented that the VOG council assist with apparatus & small work force prior the official litter pick date.

  5. Louise says:

    Penarth Beach Wardens clean the beach day in day out for local and visitor enjoyment and to prevent litter causing environmental damage to wildlife. The Queen is very welcome to join us – I’m sure we could supply her with a litter picker and a black bag.

  6. ron says:

    Why!. Is the Queen visiting Penarth on her birthday.?

  7. Tim Bird (Barry &Vale FoE) says:

    It would be great to get local people involved with this.
    I will help with the clean up if I cam.
