A group of young people took part in their own Clean for the Queen litter-pick in Ipswich this month.

Around 30 youngsters filled out 20 bags of litter from outside Chantry Library, based in Hawthorn Drive, and from the nearby Stonelodge Park.

Thousands of people took to the streets nationwide last week for the Clean for the Queen campaign to clear up Britain in time for Her Majesty’s 90th birthday to be officially celebrated in June.

A Suffolk Libraries spokesman said: “The young people all regularly attend the library’s drop-in session on a Monday night and, with the help of library staff, around 30 young people filled about 20 bags of litter.

“Staff from the library and children’s centre also provided a barbecue for everyone, while the litter-picking equipment was provided by Ipswich Borough Council.”
