Region 2 - Clean for the Queen Project in Watford

Her majesty, the Queen will celebrate her 90th birthday on the 21st April 2016. Clean for The Queen is a national campaign supported by all of the country’s litter charities along with a range of companies and associations to clear up Britain in time for Queen’s 90th birthday. ‘Clean for the Queen’ litter blitzes were planned throughout the UK in January, February and March culminating in a monumental litter clear-up from Friday 4 to Sunday 6 March.

Region 2 had teamed up with the Friends of Oxhey Park to support this event. Eight adults and two SSE teenagers met with Sandy Bell outside Tesco Extra supermarket in Watford to pick up litter in a public area on Saturday 5th March 2016. Sandy had sought all the necessary permissions and sent us some guidance and Health and Safety information prior to the event.

On the day, after a Health and Safety briefing, we set to clear an area of the public pathway and part of the river Colne bank.

We collected lots of rubbish and separated the recycling items into separate bags.

As a devotee suggested, this event fits into the Sai principles. On a spiritual level, it would be:

Love and Respect of our Elders, such as The Queen
Love and Service to the Motherland - UK
Love of Sita and Mother Earth
