Cour­tesy clean up thanks

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

On the evening of Septem­ber 18 a 21st party was held in the soc­cer club build­ing.

I live at the en­trance to Strath­more Park. At 11pm I de­cided to hit the sack and up to that time we could hear voices et cetera out­side which did not cre­ate a prob­lem.

Af­ter this I did not hear a thing. I be­lieve the party ended by 1am.

Next morn­ing we could see bot­tles on our lawn and across the road. I do not have a prob­lem pick­ing up empty bot­tles and the odd bro­ken one; this does not hap­pen of­ten.

While I was do­ing this I was joined by fam­ily mem­bers of the lad that turned 21.

They had checked the fields and the road into the park and picked up all the bot­tles.

It did not stop there as they cleaned up out­side our prop­erty and then con­tin­ued their clean up into Be­nalder Cres­cent.

To those fam­ily mem­bers, thank you. Craig Lawry
