Volunteering Opportunity: Clean for the Queen

Clean for the Queen is a new initiative from Keep Britain Tidy marking the Queen's 90th birthday this year, and at Victoria Park we'd like to mark the event by particularly raising awareness to dog walkers about cleaning up after their dogs.  We know that the majority of dog walkers are responsible, but we also realise that there are a small minority of dog owners who don't clear up after their dogs.
We know that this is an issue close to a lot of park user's hearts and thought that having volunteers dotted around the park, handing out leaflets and dog waste bags might be a friendly way of reminding people to keep our park clean! 

We'd like as many people as possible to come and volunteer and are currently asking volunteers to commit to a 2-3 hour session on Saturday 5 March.  Volunteers will be provided with high vis vests and plenty of dog poo bags, along with information leaflets.

For more information and to register your interest, please email or call 0207 364 4504.

Can you help?

We need a few volunteers to help us net the east lake to check the fish populations.  It's sure to be a fascinating day!  All training will be provided.
Wednesday 17 February | 9.30am - 3.30pm
To book your place, call 0207 364 4504 or email
