Clean for the Queen

Image result for clean for the queen 2016The Council is supporting a national ‘Clean for the Queen’ campaign as part of the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations. We have decided to take part on Saturday 5th March meeting at the Village Hall carpark at 10:00h for approx. 2 hours

The campaign seeks to inspire a million people to take action and so we are asking you to enjoy a few hours together litter-picking to make the Parish a more beautiful place to live. The plan is to clear the deep ditches of litter before the growing season starts, so anyone taking part will need sturdy footwear and gloves and the Parish Council will provide bags.

Whether you do it for Queen and country; or just to make your local community look even better, we hope you will get involved and support this event. Anyone interested can contact the Clerk to the Council Deborah Lawson on clerk@flittongreenfield.org.uk  or see any member of the Parish Council for more information.Image result for clean for the queen

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.

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.
