More than 150 people have already answered the call for action by taking part in the Clean For The Queen event, with more tidy ups planned across the district over the coming days.

The event kicked off with a clean up along the River Welland – between the town’s Memorial Gardens and Rockingham Road in Market Harborough – involving the local Environment Group, staff from McDonalds and Harborough District Council’s vice chairman Janette Ackerley – with 25 bags of litter collected.

A total of 200 bags of rubbish have already been collected across the district, including such items as old tyres and a vacuum cleaner.
