Ubico litter picks for the Queen
Today we sent a group of volunteers to Racecourse Lane and Clarks Lane in Siddington, near Cirencester to help get it neat and tidy for the Queen's 90th birthday on 21st April.
We wanted to give up some of our time as part of an on-going commitment to support the local community, so we decided to join 200,000 other people to spruce up the local area as part of Keep Britain Tidy's national 'Clean for the Queen' campaign.
Throughout the morning, we managed to collect 24 bags of waste between us plus a number of larger items that wouldn't fit in a bag. We collected general litter such as the usual food wrappers and drinks cans and also some more unusual objects such as car mats, pillows, a broken bed and even a pressure washer!
John Hays, Commercial Director, Ubico Ltd said:
"We really enjoy getting out of the office for a few hours to help improve the cleanliness of the local area.
"The Cotswolds' is a beautiful area and we want to help keep it that way. So many people have already given up their time to litter pick as part of the Clean for the Queen campaign, we wanted to do our bit too.
"This area is well used by local walkers, cyclist and horse riders, so we hope they will continue to enjoy the area now it has had a spring clean."
