Educate people to stop littering
It is a good thing that Ashford Borough Council says it will be sending out contractors to pick it up litter on the river bank (Resident’s Disgust At Litter Problem, KE, February 11) but in ‘due course’, whatever does that mean? They don’t say when.
The litter in my photo has been lying there for a couple of months and there was a lot worse amount last winter.
I saw another lot of litter today in a different location. It is one thing chasing around picking up litter after people but we must change the culture and stop people doing it in the first place.
Is enough being taught in schools? Can CCTV be used to catch miscreants so that they can be taught a lesson?
I face the situation of expecting foreign relatives to visit us at Easter and being ashamed to take them for a walk anywhere for fear of their seeing and being shocked at our litter scourge.
We need more litter bins but they must be emptied regularly, one sees too many that are overflowing. Ted Prangnell, Kennington
