HELP US CLEAN UP OUR TOWN
Following Talk of the Town’s Tittle Tattle Live broadcast last Thursday morning from our spot at the only set of traffic lights in Port Alfred, we could not help but notice the litter at the Duck Pond area.
It is easy to turn a blind eye and pretend we don’t see it. And when we do get offended at the sight, our inclination is to say the municipality must clean it up.
