Carshalton and Wallington MP, Tom Brake, joined local residents this weekend to ‘Clean for the Queen.’ This initiative aimed to give the country a tidy-up for the Queen’s 90th Birthday in April and encouraged thousands of people to help their communities and make their villages, towns and cities cleaner places in which to live, work, and play.
Tom Brake MP was one of 45 willing volunteers in Beddington Park out on Sunday for a litter-pick organised by the Carshalton Park Rotary Club. Sutton’s Lib Dem Councillors were also out en force in other locations around the Borough.
Tom said, “It was great to see so many residents come out and support this campaign. Not only do our parks and green spaces look better, the action day provided a perfect opportunity for families and friends to get together, and give back to our community. I would like to thank everyone who participated in the initiative to make Sutton a cleaner and healthier place in which to live.”
Local councils across the UK spend £1 billion on cleaning up litter, cans, empty bottles and other rubbish every year.
