Cleaning for The Queen (but not sitting down on the job)

Jan and I helped with the regular village litter pick this morning. This time it was under the banner of "Clean for the Queen", a nationwide litter blitz dreamed up, I believe, by Keep Britain Tidy.

First, though, we litter pickers took part in a small-scale unveiling. A bench commemorating the centenary of the First World War - lest we forget - had been newly installed. We ripped off the plastic sheeting and posed for a photo.

Jan was proud to be the first to sit on the bench, but somehow I missed that photo opportunity.

The bench is rather good, with doves of peace and poppies.

Then we dispersed round the village and filled our purple plastic sacks in the rain. Here's Jan posing with hers!

There was more purple this afternoon at a Lenten Concert we went to in Wymondham Abbey.

It was very good; we went for a curry afterwards. That was good too.
