Road cleaners’ dangerous job
MY grateful and heartfelt thanks to those men who we see regularly clearing litter along the A20 and similar roads. What a disillusionment it must be. Clearing up, driving back and seeing yet more litter blowing around. We shouldn’t need anyone to risk their lives doing this job for us. Take your rubbish home or find a bin please. M. Austen, The Plain, Smeeth, Ashford.
I WOULD like to thank everyone that turned out for our “litter pick” last Saturday morning, especially our parish clerk for her organisation and Alan our resident “expert”. We had a reasonable turnout and managed to collect over 50 bags of rubbish together with various other items ranging from a car exhaust to a vacuum cleaner. I would also like to thank our sponsors – Biffa and Silver Spring. We had a good response from everyone that spotted us out on the day and I would like to make just two observations. Firstly, we should all look to take more interest in keeping “our patch” litter free and a huge amount of our collection was made up of plastic and this must be an area that our borough council should make a high priority to reinstate the plastic collection as it is a big problem.
