Clean for the Queen & the Knowle Fun Run

Along with groups all over the borough and the country, the Society arranged a day to clean the central area of our local community as part of this national initiative in celebration of The Queen’s 90th birthday. On Thursday 12th May 2016 around 20 volunteers collected litter, painted benches and cared for the Precinct flower beds.

Over 25 bags of rubbish were collected – special purple ‘Clean for the Queen’ bags were supplied by local MP Caroline Spelman. Kerry Mountjoy from SMBC arranged for collection of the waste and Tesco and The Greswolde Hotel provided welcome sustenance for the volunteers on a delightful sunny morning.

Society volunteers also helped with stewarding at the Knowle Fun Run on Sunday 15th May.
