This morning I joined with a few neighbours to do a local litter pick. We managed to tidy up Glencoe Road, Stafford Road, Stafford Street (where there was unfortunately some fly tipping that I am reporting to the Council to sort out) and Fitzwalter Road. This happens at 10am on the first Saturday of every month, and we then join the coffee morning at Victoria Methodist. It would be great to see more people next month! The major culprits it has to be said, are the cigarette smokers! Why can’t they take their rubbish home?
Another major problem is dog mess. I have recently followed 2 unaccompanied dogs home and talked to the owners about the mess they make. If I see the same dogs out unaccompanied again I will be informing the authorities.
If you know of areas where there has been fly tipping please report it.
Some of the litter pickers are interested in the idea of forming a local group to improve our environment. If you are interested in this idea, please get in touch with me.
