‘SU­PER-HEAD’ FLIES IN TO SAVE TROU­BLED SCHOOL FULL STORY SEE PAGE 7 Lit­ter pick banned for be­ing too dan­ger­ous

Community spirit knocked back by coun­cil’s safety fears

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Front Page -

Coun­cil health and safety chiefs have banned res­i­dents from pick­ing up lit­ter in a Can­ter­bury vil­lage – be­cause some roads don’t have pave­ments.

The au­thor­ity has dis­missed pleas from lo­cals who want to clean rub­bish near the 30mph streets, claim­ing it is “too dan­ger­ous”. The de­ci­sion was branded “ridicu­lous” by or­gan­iser Char­lie Porter, right, who has been urged by sup­port­ers to defy the ban.
