Community Information:

Received from the Lord Lieutenant of Gwent:

The Patrons Lunch
At the very heart of this event lie three core themes that will run through all aspects of this incredible project. The first being 'charity'; a unique fundraising platform for over 300 charities of which The Queen is patron and an opportunity for communities all over the UK to maximise thier own fundraising efforts.  Secondly is 'celebration'; a chance to publically celebrate and honour an extraordinary commitment to service in a very British way with a fun and festival spirited street party lunch. And finally the third theme is 'community'; engaging communities all over the country, both locally and nationally.

With core themes in mind, participants all over the UK will have the opportunity to embrace the festivities and celebrations and to re-ignite that 'great' British community spirit. We hope to inspire thousands of communities around the country to host their own lunches in celebration of what community means to them and to provide a tangible platform for charitable fundraising for each one of those communities. And it is in this area that I ask for your support to encourage your country and associated communities to take part and to bring The Patron's Lunch to life accross the nation.

This event is fully endorsed and supported by Buckingham Palace, and is one of only three official events that will mark Her Majesty's 90th birthday. These include a "HMQ90", at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in May 2016 and a National Service of Thanksgiving at St. Pauls Cathedral in June. This service will begin a weekend long celebration on the Friday, followed by Trooping the Colour on Saturday 11th June and culminating in The patrons Lunch on Sunday 12th June. 

There is more information about the event on our website www.thepatronslunch.com. We will be constantly updating this over the coming months.

Clean for the Queen
In the run up to the Queens birthday on 21st April 2016, we aim to inspire a million people to take action and enjoy a few hours together litter-picking to make the place where we live more beautiful. For Her and for us all, we want to attack the blight of litter and reclaim our beautiful countryside, our fabulous cities, our world class parks, our wonderful beaches and waterways.

We invite you to register online at cleanforthequeen.co.uk, this will ensure you keep abreast of the campaign's developement. It will help us enormously if you could use whatever networks might be available to you to promote the campaign and encourage sign up to it within your lieutenancy.

There will be 'Clean for the Queen' litter blitzes throughout the United Kingdom in January, February and March, and the most monumental of all litter clear-ups from Friday 4 to Sunday 6 March 2016.

The first national anti-litter campaign was carried out in 1953, the year of the Queen's coronation. How appropriate it is then, in the new year of The Queen's 90th birthday, that we should all band together to attempt the biggest clean-up in history.

We hope that you will join us and spread the word. Lets Clean for The Queen!
