The Great British Spring Clean - Sat 4th March 2017

The Parish Council is taking part in the Great British Spring Clean again this year after Clean for the Queen in 2016. The campaign has one simple ambition - to bring together like-minded people from all walks of life to clear up the litter that blights our village and countryside. But it’s not just about picking up litter. It’s also about sending a clear signal to those who drop the litter - there is growing movement of people who find littering unacceptable.

PLEASE COME AND JOIN US FOR JUST 2 HOURS ON  SATURDAY 4th MARCH at 10.00h AT THE VILLAGE HALL.  

We will supply sacks and tabbards, please bring your own gloves and wear old clothes and sturdy boots as last year we even cleaned out some of the muddy ditches

Contact clerk@flittongreenfield.org.uk for more information or to let us know you can help.

We need people from all over the Parish and do let us know if you feel somewhere needs a particular clean.

Flitton and Greenfield

Greenfield is a small village about 1.2 miles from the town of Flitwick, it lies across Flitwick Moor and is on the opposite side of the River Flit. It forms part of the parish of Flitton and Greenfield. The area was once well known as a strawberry producing area, and the fields were full of strawberry plants on either side of the main road. It is now a thriving village with several small businesses.

Compasses Greenfield

Flitton  (Flichtam, Fllite, and Flute) forms the other part of the parish and derives its name from river Flit. It is the home of the De Grey Mausoleum adjacent to St John the Baptist church. Flitton contains the hamlet of Wardhedges. It too has a number of small businesses and working farms.
