John Lewis Watford Partners and Bromet School help clean up Oxhey Park

On Friday 4th March Partners from John Lewis Watford have been taking part in the UK’s largest spring clean by litter picking at Oxhey Park and the surrounding area.

Partners from John Lewis Watford and students from Bromet School gave up their time as part of Clean for the Queen campaign supported by Keep Britain Tidy, which not only aims to motivate one million people to engage in clearing litter, but also encourages communities to care about their local neighbourhoods and wildlife.

The involvement from John Lewis Watford was part of a national voluntary programme from the retailer which enabled Partners across 15 shops nationwide to take part in the project. Together, they were tasked to clean up public spaces, including neighbourhood streets, local parks, and the beaches.

Jonathan Field from John Lewis Watford said: “At John Lewis Watford we are always looking to contribute to the wellbeing of the local community, and as soon as we heard about this campaign we were keen to help out in any way we could. This is a huge collaborative effort and we are pleased to be able to support the local area and its inhabiting wildlife by volunteering at Oxhey Park.”

Adrian Evans, Campaign Director, Clean for The Queen, said: “The response to the campaign has been truly inspiring. We have hundreds of thousands of people taking part and we want everyone to get involved. There is still time to get together with friends, neighbours or work colleagues and organise an event. If everyone picked up a single piece of litter, it will make a difference.”
